The Prince Rupert Amateur Swim Club sent three swimmers down to Chilliwack for BC’s short Course “AA” Provincial Championships.

While Zach Dolan (12) had been to BC Championship meets before, this was a first time experience for Emma Movold (10) and Isaac Mastroianni (10).

Dolan made a pair of finals in the 13-and-under boys age group. He finished 6th in the 1500 free and 7th in the 200 breaststroke. He made three other consolation finals, finishing 10th in the 100 breaststroke, 11th in the 400 freestyle and 15th in the 100 backstroke. He earned one new “AA” time with a 3:04.11 200 breaststroke.

Movold broke through by qualifying for an “A” final in the 11-and-under 400 freestyle. She sliced off nearly 20 seconds from her best time en route to an eighth place finish. Amongst Emma’s six personal best times, she picked up a trio of new “AA” times in the 50 freestyle, 400 freestyle and 200 freestyle. She also better one of her big sister Avery’s 10-and-under PRASC records by posting a 3:01.18 200 backstroke.

Mastroianni didn’t reach any finals but he did snag best times in five of his six events and added a pair of new “AA” times. He did that with a 3:17.22 200 IM and a 2:48.96 200 freestyle. Isaac’s best finish was 13th in the 200 freestyle.
