Stingrays staying busy in the pool

The Swift Current ACT/UCT Stingrays swim club members have been busy, swimming in a couple of events in advance of their annual home meet.

The Stingrays were represented by 14 swimmers at a meet in Rosetown when Taylor Dickie, Reese Holderbein, Shae Holderbein, Hannah Regier, Sophie Regier, Isabelle Simpson, Ace Brewer, Ryan Dickie, Eric Lloyd, Ezra Lloyd, Luke Nelson, Ethan Regier, Luke Regier, and Brady Simpson hit the water.

The next day the Stingrays had nine athletes compete in Biggar with Brooke Griffiths, Ellie Griffiths, Reese Holderbein, Sophie Regier, Ace Brewer, Vinnie Griffiths, Eric Lloyd, Ezra Lloyd, and Luke Regier all in action.
