The Haney Seahorses had numerous medal finishes as the swim club hosted its annual spring meet over the weekend at the Maple Ridge Leisure Centre.

The club had 22 swimmers competing in the meet, and seven of them had top-three finishes, many in multiple events.

“The team did very well at the meet. All of the Seahorses swimmers achieved a great deal of personal best times,” said coach Dave Geary.

Among the top placers:

• Tim Tan had five first place and one second place finishes in men’s 12-13 category.

• Justice Migneault had a first-place and four second-place finishes in the Mens 12-13 category.

“Tim and Justice just recently attended the provincial championships. Both made a few Top 16 performances in the 12-13 age group,” said Geary.

• Goodspeed Ko had two first place and two second place finishes in men’s 14 and Over category.

• Julia Rosec had one each of first-, second- and third-place finishes in women’s 14 and over.

• Zak Osmond had a first-, second- and third-place finish in men’s 14 and over.

• Taylor Ko had three second-place finished in women’s 12-13 category.

• Moira Minichiello had two second- and two third-place finishes in women’s nine and under category.

“The club continues to grow every year,” said Geary.

“Besides the 22 kids that competed at the meet over the weekend we have another 40 to 50 young kids competing at lower level meets.”
