Article re Muskats Splash Meet #1

The Orillia Channel Cats Swim Club recently hosted the first of three Muskats Splash Invitational Swim Meet.     Orillia partners with Muskoka to host three development meets primarily for swimmers who are new to competing.

“These meets are quick, and have fewer participants which is a perfect environment for those who are new to the sport.”   Says Head Coach Meredith Thompson-Edwards.    “We will also sometimes offer these meets as an opportunity for more experienced swimmers to try different events as well as obtain Regional qualifying time.”  She adds.

Swimmers from the Jr Novice, Sr Novice, Bronze and Silver swimmers participated as well as swimmers from Muskoka.       “We are pleased with all of our swimmers’ results.     They all did a great job.”  Says Novice Coach Ken Elphick.

Swimmers from Orillia in attendance include:   Fife Campbell  Elora DeWolfsmith  Sophie DeWolfsmith  Carter Smith Ava Low  Kait Madden Evan Wagner Owen Wagner Elle Waite    Kianna DeGrechie  Ana Baillie  Alex Baillie  Jasmine Coleman  Logan Wilson Ruben Wolf-Hambsch                Emma Pilger  Sadie Fear  Donovan Allin Declan Allin  Kaitlyn Allin Grace Reed  Alicia Murphy Adair Wieclawek     Larissa Cooke  Evangeline Cooke    Ava Holly Elliott Rachel Carr   Erik Vurma   Mathieu Rainville C0urtlyn MacIntyre   Ben Thomson  Maya Levene  Emma Haley Molly Hazel   Jack Dilawri  Zach Sternberg  Katie Heckendorn  Nathan McClinchey  Hannah Kennedy   Brooklyn Paddon  Peter Sneyd Nathaniel Sneyd   Marin Askew Jackson Denne  Ciara Martin   Thea Martin  Toby Moczkodan   Madison Woolhouse   Eve Cosco            Hayden Nie  Olivia Currie  and Olivia LePage.
