Four Prince Rupert Amateur Swim Club (PRASC) swimmers made the trip to Chilliwack for the Swim BC AA Championships from Feb. 16-19.
Isaac Dolan was the lone Rupert representative who returned with a medal, winning the bronze in the boys 400 freestyle. Just 13, Dolan made the A final in the 200 backstroke, finishing seventh. He also made the B finals in the 200 free (finished 13th) and 200 IM (finishing 14th). Dolan also secured a AAA qualifying time in the 400 freestyle (4:54.62).
Natalie DeMille, 12-years-old, only aged up from the 11 and under age group three weeks ago, but she swam best times in four of her five events. Her best result at the championships was 34th in the 200 backstroke.
Also competing was Kobi Franes, 15. He finished seventh in the 1500 freestyle and swam to his first-ever AAA time in the 1500 (17:57.12).
Jarred McMeekin was the final PRASC swimmer, and he had a good showing as well. He made the A finals in the 200 IM, placing fourth, and 200 breaststroke, finishing sixth. He also made the B final in 50 freestyle, finishing ninth.
McMeekin set a third AAA time in 200 IM (2:22.23), meaning he is now qualified to participate in AAA championships.
