More than 180 swimmers took part in the Swim Saskatchewan closed “A” provincial championships and the Saskatchewan Closed Junior Cup competitions hosted by the Prince Albert Sharks Swim Club at the Frank Dunn Pool on the weekend. The Junior Cup, which was for swimmers who were 10-and-under in the female division and 11-and-under in the male class, was won by the Saskatoon Goldfins Swim Club. The Goldfins, a powerhouse swim program in the province, were almost 100 points better than the runner-up Regina Optimist Dolphin Swim Club and 200 points better than the Moose Jaw Kinsmen Flying Fins. In the provincial “A” competitions it was the host Sharks running away with the team title as they were more than 300 points better than their nearest competitor. Moose Jaw was named the top small club – 15 competitors or less - in the provincial event. All Sharks results will be published in the Daily Herald on Tuesday.
