The DCSS swim team is off to Richmond this weekend for the 2021-22 BC Aquatic Provincial Championships. Five swimmers will be looking to record best times at the sport's biggest stage in BC School Sports.
Amelia McDonald, Ridley Chisholm, Ty O'Dwyer, Natalia Duff, and Chloe O'Dwyer will all be representing both DCSS and the Dawson Creek Seals. The championships run November 19 and 20.
McDonald is swimming in the the 50m freestyle, 50m fly, and 200m medley relay events.
Chisholm is swimming in the 100m freestyle, 100m individual medley, 50m breaststroke, and 200m medley relay events.
Ty O'Dwyer is swimming in the 50m freestyle, 50m backstroke, 50m fly and 200m medley relay events, while Chloe O'Dwyer is going as an alternate for the team.
Duff will swim in the the 50m backstroke, 100m individual medley, and 200m medley relay events.
The provincial meet is larger than most other school sports provincial tournaments, as athletes from all school classifications — A, AA, AAA — will be swimming together at the same meet in the same venue. It's a chance for the swimmers to compete against the best, as well as to see the best swimmers in the province in person.
