Jacob Stratton of the Elk Valley Dolphin Swim Club qualified for and competed at the Swim BC AA Championships in Chilliwack from February 28 to March 2.

Stratton achieved three best times and made the finals in those events, on top of achieving the next level of Swim BC Provincial Standards in the 50 Free and 100 Free, and is now an AAA qualifier in those events. Stratton’s best times were in 50 Free and 100 Free where he placed fifth in both events and 200 Breast where he placed fifteenth.

Due to an injury during the 200 Breast finals on Saturday, Stratton was unable to compete at his best for the events on Sunday, but he pushed on as best he could for his third day of competition. He did make finals in the 100 Breast but struggled due to his injury and was disqualified.

Head coach Marie Cosens and the Dolphins congratulate Jacob on his hard work and success!
