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.
