SAINT JOHN, N.B. – The Summerside Dolphin Swim Club will be represented by 11 swimmers at the East Coast short-course championships here this weekend.
Over 25 swim clubs and more than 300 swimmers will be taking part in this competition.
The East Coast championships feature the fastest age group swimmers from the four Atlantic provinces. This meet technically brings an end to the 25-metre short-course season.
After the March Break, Dolphin swimmers will be setting their sights on competitions such as the New Brunswick and East Coast long-course championships, as well as a major trip to Montreal.
“We are rested, pumped and ready to swim fast,” said Dolphins head coach Dave Campbell. “Our hopes are for a great meet, and we are looking forward to a fantastic long-course season.”
