Inconnu Swim Club athletes Holly Wiens, Kellee Lekavy, Chris Amstutz, Ben Blackmon and Skyeler Kerr returned from the Speedo Western Canadian Championships in Saskatoon on Monday where three of the five had top-10 finishes.

In a meet categorized as “not their main priority” by coach Jason Brockman, the young swimmers held their own against some of the best swimmers in Western Canada from Feb. 14 to 17.

Fourteen-year-old Kerr spent the weekend swimming against 16 year olds and made it to the finals in the 50 and 100 m butterfly. In the 50 m fly, Kerr finished in 10th with a time of 26.93 seconds and in the 100 m fly came in 15th with a time of 58.70, which was a faster finish than both his seed and preliminary results.

Ben Blackmon, 16, made it to the finals in all three of his races, the 50, 100 and 200 m breaststrokes. Blackmon’s top finish of the weekend was the 200 m breaststroke where he came in ninth at 2:24.92. He also came in 10th in the 100 m breaststroke and 14th in the 50.

Holly Wiens advanced to two finals, the 100 and 200 m backstroke races where she finished 23rd in the 100 and Inconnu’s top-place finish of eighth in the 200 m with a time of 2:18.36.

Up next for the Inconnus is the 2013 Swim BC AAA Short Course Age Group Championships in Victoria, Feb. 28 to March 3.
