DC Seals put up strong performances at Provincials

It was a good cap to the season, as the Dawson Creek Seals sent 19 swimmers to provincials in Surrey and came back with an array of medals.

“The results were better than we expected,” says head coach Danny Schilds. “Every Seal at the meet improved their best times and we had many finals and medal winners.”

Ty O’Dwyer earned a bronze medal for breaststroke, while taking off three seconds of his best time, and earned a silver medal in 50 free, knocking two seconds off his best time.

Despite lower qualifying times, Caleb Harris earned three medals — two bronze, and a gold in 200 metres individual medley.

Kelsey Ginter, who is also an assistant coach, shaved off five seconds from her qualifying time in 100 breaststroke to take a silver medal.

“The team is now taking a break until winter maintenance starts in October and then it will be back in the water and starting plans for next year and going even faster,” says Schilds.
