Over 1oo young swimmers from Dryden, Red Lake, Kenora, Fort Frances and Thunder Bay competed at the Dryden Pool & Fitness Centre this past weekend at the Dryden SPLASH Swim Meet.

A big thank you goes out to all the parents from all of the clubs who stepped forward to help on deck as officials and in the background – selling programs and equipment.   We also would like to thank the staff and lifeguards of the Dryden Pool & Fitness Centre who help make our meet one of the highlights of the season.

The Dryden Dolphins had a very successful time in the pool with their 27 representatives posting many personal bests and first times in a number of swims.  The Coaches were pleased with how our team conducted themselves both in and out of the pool.

First Time Meet participants included:

  • Adrielle Bazinet,
  • Jonah Brown,
  • Mya Corbett,
  • Jaxson Coughlin,
  • Liam Howarth, and
  • Alexander Reid.
