In an inspiring display of determination and skill, the Prince Albert Sharks Swim Club embarked on a journey to Saskatoon to take part in the Manitoba-Saskatchewan Provincial Swimming Championships. Their aspirations soared high, and upon their return, they brought with them a treasure trove of achievements.

Each member of the quintet of Sharks swimmers delivered performances that left spectators in awe, pushing boundaries and achieving remarkable feats. Their collective efforts yielded bountiful rewards, as evidenced by the six medals proudly adorning their necks. A particularly remarkable moment came when they shattered the club record in the 200-meter butterfly—a record that had stood unchallenged for over 27 years, a testament to their tenacity and skill.

Furthermore, they attained the coveted “AA” qualification, a feat that serves as the gateway to the Para Swimmers Canadian Trials. Countless personal best times were also achieved, underscoring their dedication to constant improvement.

The Prince Albert Sharks Swim Club’s pursuit of excellence extended beyond individual achievements. They vied for the esteemed title of Top Small Club and clinched a remarkable

second-place finish, cementing their status as a force to be reckoned with in the swimming community.

Among the standout performers was Ali D., who dazzled with one silver and four bronze medals, alongside remarkable personal bests in all her events. Zoe C. left an indelible mark by breaking the club record in the 200-meter butterfly—a record untouched for over 27 years.

Ethan E. made a splash with his podium finish in the 50-meter freestyle, Myla M. and Clara G., despite competing in the 15 & over category at a tender age, exhibited remarkable prowess, with Myla earning her spot in the finals of several events and Clara showcasing significant improvement in her personal bests.

As we reflect on their achievements, we are filled with an overwhelming sense of pride for our Sharks swimmers. Their dedication, perseverance, and unwavering spirit inspire us all, and we eagerly anticipate the next chapter in their journey towards even greater success in the upcoming swimming championships.
