Twenty-five swimmers out of Ponoka’s 32 Gators that attended the regional swim meet in Lacombe last weekend qualified for provincials in Edmonton, a result, which was described as “fantastic” by Gators coach Jon Davies.

“The club finished third in overall points but first in points per swimmer (total points divided by number of swimmers),” Davies said.

“Zoe, Aspen and Harbour have all positioned themselves to earn more medals at provincials and a number of relays have as well,” he added.

Successful Gators are next headed to provincials in Edmonton this weekend, beginning on Friday, Aug. 14.
