Breakers make waves

Ravensong Aquatic Club members establish top Canadian age-group marks while placing seventh in annual Bennett Cup meet

The Ravensong Breakers Swim Club got maximum results from a minimalist team last weekend, placing seventh among 15 teams in the annual Bennett Cup swim meet at Saanich Commonwealth Centre.

Among the highlights were times that took over the top age-group marks in the country.

The boys 13-14 year old relay team of Jakob Brager, Jakob Mbobela, Nick Bennett and Ben Roberts cruised to a first-place clocking of 4:19:68 in the 4×100-metre freestyle relay, the fastest time in Canada this year in the age group.

Jenna Horton and Camryn Stannard, who are both ranked in Swimming Canada’s power rankings, dominated the 11-year-old girls division.

Horton won the 100 butterfly, 200 IM and 200 breast stroke. Stannard won the 50, 100 and 800 freestyle and set a Canada-best mark of 2:35.56 in the 200 butterfly.
