Maple Ridge Artistic Swim Club members make a splash

Some top finishes at competition in Coquitlam

Members of the Maple Ridge Artistic Swim Club (MRASC) put in some impressive performances over the weekend at the Mable Moran Provincial Qualifier Championships in Coquitlam.

The club was founded by Teri Kempter, who now serves as head coach, just one year ago. She is joined by coach and club president Kacey Perrett in building the new club, and bringing a passion for their sport.

The club has had some success competitively, as six members of the novice team were part of the provincial qualifier. They swam as a team, competed in duets and as soloists. The girls were also part of the compulsory figures in their respective age categories.
