A group of local young swimmers made some waves at a swim meet earlier this month.
Conrad Carlson, 15, Faith Knelson, 10 and Darby Rae, 14, represented the Ladysmith Orcas at the Island Pacific Cup and Jamboree Nov. 11-13.
According to Orcas coach Dusan Toth-Szabo, Carlson performed his best time of the season in all three heats during the meet, in 50 Fly, 50 Back and 50 Breast.
Placing second in the Female 12 & Under 50 Breast category, and fourth in the Female 12 & Under 100 Breast category and improving her times by 1.21 and 5.87 seconds respectively, Knelson is ranked No. 1 for her age, Toth-Szabo said.
A fourth-place finish in the Female 13-14 50 Free competition, with a time of 28.56S, qualified Rae for the AAA provincials.
Rae is currently ranked No. 5 in B.C. in her age group in the 50 Free category.
Watch for these up-and-coming swimmers in the coming months, along with other members of the Ladysmith Orcas Swim Club.
