Great Perfomances from Tritons at 2009 Jr. Provincials
Wolfville, NS - Six members of the Wolfville Tritons Swim Club competed at the 2009 Swim Nova Scotia Junior Provincial Championships May 22-24. Jeremy Ingham, Jenna Juntermanns, Leigh Murphy, Jenna Myles, Emily Thompson and Jennifer Vibert represented the Tritons during the three day meet.
185 swimmers from Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island traveled to Wolfville to compete in the three day swim meet, hosted by the Tritons at Acadia Pool. Meet sponsors, Acadia University, the Honorable Scott Brison, M.P., and the Municipality of the County of Kings all helped the event turn into a great success said WTSC Head Coach, Chris Stone.
"We had a great showing from our young up and comers over the course of the weekend," said Coach Stone.
"The meet has a de-qualifying standard for any swimmers 11 & over who have qualified for the East Coast Championship level, so many of our swimmers were precluded from competing," Stone said.
"However, our developing talent had a great meet, swimming to 95% personal bests as a team for the meet," he added.
Leading the way was Emily Thompson, a 14 year old in her first year with the team. Thompson swam 100% best times, winning silver in the girls 13-14 100m backstroke, 4th in the 13-14 girls 200m backstroke and 5th in the 13-14 girls 100m freestyle.
13 year old Jeremy Ingham also swam 100% best times, and placed sixth in the 50m and 200m free, as well as in the 200m backstroke for 13-14 year old boys.
Jenna Myles and Jennifer Vibert also had 100% personal bests, while Jenna Juntermanns and Leigh Murphy turned in 5 our of 6 best times over the three day meet.
The Tritons will be in action again next weekend, as their younger swimmers take part in the 2009 Future League Championships, which is for young swimmers, ages 10 & under.
