By Tim Davidson Apr 17, 2024 | 1:10 PM

The Kenora Sharks hosted more than 140 swimmers from across the region and Manitoba for its first swim meet since before the COVID pandemic.

The Sharks enjoyed a strong showing, with 52 swimmers ranging from first timers to seasoned provincial and national qualifiers.

There were several strong performances included those by Josh Benson, Liam Serino, Tazio Mastromatteo, Kate McKie,
and several others.

Achieving Provincial AA qualifying times were Mary Edlund, Liam Serino, Sophie English, Josephine Hill, Tazio Mastromatteo and Josh Benson.

Hitting Provincial A times were Katherine Duchominsky, Naomi Noack Simone and Riel Noack Simone.

Coach Janet Hyslop was pleased with the performances and determination shown by the swimmers.

“It was incredible to see them take to the pool with such confidence. Competing in their home pool brought enthusiasm and team spirit akin to playing on home ice,” says Hyslop.

“It was a fantastic opportunity for each swimmer to explore their capabilities and set ambitious goals for the future.”

The Sharks are now gearing up for the Bison Sprint meet on May 4th.

The Olympic Trials will take place in Toronto, May 13-19, where Gabriel Mastromatteo, alongside his siblings Emilia and
Tazio, aim to make history as the first sibling trio at an Olympic Trials, with Gabriel chasing his dream of a second Olympic appearance in Paris.
