BC Masters Bring Home the Bling!

On October 10, seven British Columbia Masters Swimmers representing 3 BC clubs made their way down to Federal Way, Washington for the Northwest Zone SCM Championships. Held annually, this US sanctioned interstate championship invites swimmers from Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Utah, Washington and you got it – Western Canada!

This year’s meet was hosted by Pacific Northwest Association of Masters and the Orca Swim Team (Puget Sound). With close to 200 swimmers from over a dozen clubs the meet took place over 2 days at the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center, a fantastic 50m facility with Olympic diving facilities.

By the end of the weekend the BC Masters had swam 33 events and medaled in 32 of them bringing home 22 gold, 6 silver and 4 bronze.

So when you see UBC Masters James Hooper, Erik Kerasiotis, Julie Morgan and Paul Wilkins, Victoria Masters Susan Simmons and Karen Tannas and Semiahmoo’s Aart Looye take your cap off for a “job well done!”
