Stettler’s Beau Hadley participates in the swim meet organized by the Stettler Tsunamis on Saturday

Stettler Tsunamis host swim meet

Approximately 40 swimmers from teams in Red Deer and Sylvan Lake came to take part in the event.

The Stettler Tsunamis Swim Club has been competing in various swim meets throughout the central Alberta region this year, but until recently, it had been a long time since the team had hosted its own swim meet in Stettler.

That changed on Saturday, April 29 when the Tsunamis invited the Red Deer Catalina Swim Club and the Sylvan Lake Swim club for a meet at the Stettler Recreation Centre pool.

Approximately 40 swimmers from the three clubs took part in the meet.

The swim events included individual events of varying distances for freestyle, back stroke, breast stroke and fly swimming styles, as well as a 200-metre medley relay and a 400-metre freestyle relay.

Tsunamis coach Charlene Baharally commented that even though it had been a long time since the team hosted their own swim meet, they were pleased with the results.

“It ran very well,” Baharally said. “We got lots of comments on how friendly our volunteers were and how much fun the swimmers had.”

While the event was competitive, coaches made sure to emphasize the fun aspect as well.

“The highlight was seeing the kids swim well and having fun at the same time,” Baharally added.
