Fernie swimmer Jacob Stratton joined Cranbrook Triton athletes Jayden White and Chloe Mayes in representing the East Kootenays at the recent BC AA Provincial Swimming Championship in Surrey. All three swimmers finished the competition with at least one medal.

Elk Valley Dolphin member Jacob Stratton took home a bronze medal in the 50 metre free. Swimming for Cranbrook, Jayden White finished with a bronze in the 50 metre free and a gold in the 100 metre free, while Chloe Mayes brought in a silver in the 200 metre free.

The young athletes worked and trained hard to make it to provincials, and their dedication showed as each swimmer had at least four top 10 finishes. Jacob, Jayden, and Chloe will now go on to compete locally in the EVDSC Invitational in Fernie this April.
