Prince Rupert swimmers find success in Prince George

The Prince Rupert Amateur Swim Club joined with Kitimat, Smithers and Terrace to compete in the Prince George Fall Invitational Swim Meet.

The Prince Rupert Amateur Swim Club joined with its partners in Kitimat, Smithers and Terrace to compete in the 2012 Prince George Fall Invitational Swim Meet.

When competing locally the Northwest clubs compete under their own names but when traveling outside the northwest region they come together to form the Points North Swim Association. In this case joining together wasn’t enough as the Association was felled by Prince George 4905 to 3721.

A total of 17 Prince Rupert swimmers made the trip to Prince George. Avery Movold (12) led the way for the club. She won the Silver Aggregate award for the 11-12 girls age group (aggregate awards are based on total points accumulated in all individual events). Movold won the 100 & 200 backstrokes as well as the 50, 100 & 200 freestyles. Leading off Points North’s 4x 50 freestyle relay team she swam a new AAA qualifying time by clocking a 29.98.

Trey Kish (12) also won a Silver Aggregate. He won the 12 and under boys 50, 100 & 200 freestyles, and the 100 & 200 backstrokes. He came second in both the 100 butterfly and 200 IM.

Trey’s little sister Rya Kish (10) won silver medals for her results in the 10 & under 200 free and 200 IM. In addition Rya won the 50 & 100 breaststrokes, the 50 freestyle and the 50 backstroke. She came second in the 100 backstroke and third in the 100 freestyle.

Justin McChesney (14) snagged the Silver Aggregate medal in the 13-14 boys age group. He won the 50 & 100 backstrokes as well as the 50 freestyle. Justin came second in the 200 freestyle & 200 backstroke, and third in the 200 IM.

His young brother Liam McChesney (11) won the Bronze Aggregate in the 11-12 boys age group. He won the 50 backstroke and came second in both the 100 & 200 backstrokes, the 50 & 100 freestyles, and the 100 breaststroke. Liam also picked up a third place finish in the 200 freestyle. Liam added two new AAA times with a 2:35.80 200 freestyle and a 1:10.86 100 freestyle.

Up next for the club is a regional swim meet in Kitimat on Dec. 14-16.
