Over the last two weeks, the Fins participated in 3 major competition. From the 12-14 seven swimmers raced at the provincial AAA championship in Gatineau. They swam to numerous best times. Alyssa Ball made 7 finals becoming the provincial champion in the 100 breast and earning a silver in the 200 breast. Other finalists included Aria Fortier, Nathaniel McCracken and Lauren Murphy.

Special thanks to the parents who help with the driving and Sue for doing a great job as chaperone.
