It was a successful weekend for the Quesnel SeaLions, returning home victorious from the Prince George Pisces swim meet May 24 – 25.

One of the highlights of the weekend for new members Cassie Greenwood and Carmen Huang was getting the chance to participate and learn at their first ever official swim meet.

It was an exciting triumph for long time SeaLion Audrey Jesperson who broke two Divison 3 girls records at the P.G. meet; the 100 m individual medley and the 50 m breaststroke, a record that had been held for 24 years by a former SeaLion.

It was a wonderful moment for the team to see this record, that was held for so long, fall to another SeaLion.

In division 1 girls Natalie Bergeron, with a score of 54 points, took home the gold and swimming her way to bronze was first time division 1 swimmer Ava McGillivray with 19 points.

Taking home silver for Quesnel in division 2 girls was Taylor McGillivray, scoring 39 points.

Accomplished swimmer Audrey Jesperson scored 52 points in division 3 girls, winning the gold medal and swimming in to take home silver was Lucy Jesperson.

In division 4 girls the gold medal went to Olivia Crocker with 50 points, with fellow SeaLion Megan Pastachak swimming in with 42 point for silver.

Sarah Milligan jumped into the water in Prince George for the division 5 girls, scoring a total of 45 point to take home silver. Bronze went to Felicity Murray with 43 points.

With a total of 57 points Baylee McGilivray took home the gold medal for the division 6 girls.

In division 2 boys swimming for the gold medal with 52 points was Shawn Fisher. Teammate Owen Larson followed behind with 44 points, winning another silver medal for the SeaLions.

Dawson McGillivray took to the waters, swimming to a total of 34 point and taking home bronze for the division 4 boys.

Winning another silver medal for Quesnel with a total of 43 points was Logan Nixon, for the division 5 boys.

It was a successful first meet for the SeaLions with records falling, new member learning the ropes and medals coming home with several of Quesnel’s skilled swimmers.

It will be exciting to see how the swimmers do in their own waters at the home meet June 14 – 15.
