If the price of silver continues to rise as metal experts predict, then there’s going to be some pretty happy Nelson Neptune swimmers.The local swim team took home more than 15 medals of the silver variety at the Kootenay Regional Swim Championship Sunday in Colville, Washington.The results mean Neptune swimmers have the opportunity to compete in at least 15 events at the upcoming B.C. Swim Championships later this month in Nanaimo.“This meet was not only a great weekend to end the season for most of the swimmers because of the times that they were swimming, but also they had a really great time racing and spending time together as a cohesive group,” Nelson coach Rebecca Afford said of the small by numbers but big in heart Neptune squad.“We had a small turn out which made it possible for us to go out for dinner as a team which we never really get the chance to do especially at meets.”The Regional Championship is run in a slightly different way than regular season meets.Top three medals are awarded for each race and those swimmers earn spots on the regional team that will compete in Nanaimo August 17-19.Jaylen Rushton in Division one girls captured gold in the 50-meter butterfly (time: 48.78 PQT), silver in 50-meter breaststroke (time: 53.91PQT), and silver in the 100-meter freestyle (time: 1:34.67)(PQT stand for “provincial qualifying time” which is the time that is faster than the average eighth place finish time over the last five years at the provincial championship meet.)In Division four boys, Samuel Matthew captured silver in 200-meter individual medley (time: 2:46.11), silver in 50-meter butterfly – (time: 35.13), silver in 100-meter backstroke (time: 1:21.15) and silver in 100-meter breaststroke (time: 1:23.57 PQT).last_img read more
