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,
