Pair of Aquanauts swim well out west

Two members of the Fort Frances Aquanauts Swim Team competed in the annual MB-SK provincial championships over the weekend in Saskatoon.
Both set personal best times in all their races and did very well.
Caitlin Sande, 13, competed for the first time in such a championship and faced the pressure head-on with great success.
Meanwhile, Donovan Taylor, 13, had phenomenal results.
Not only did he bring home the bronze medal for the 50m free, but now is ranked no lower than 10th nationally in six of the eight races and no lower than fifth in Ontario in six of eight.
At present, Taylor is seeded second in his 200m free for his highest ranking in the male 13-year-old age division.
The results far exceeded my expectations for these swimmers. I knew they were capable of the challenge, but never expected this much improvement.
As a coach, you always hope for improvement but 100 percent is the best it can get! In fact, the times are so good, I am still waiting for someone to pinch me!
Their results are as follows:
•Caitlin Sande—200m IM (2:54.16, 35th), 50m free (31.50, 26th), 100m free (1:08.76, 31st), and 50m fly (35.88, 29th); and
•Donovan Taylor—200m IM (2:23.64, 5th), 100m fly (1:06.76, 6th), 50m free (26.77, 3rd), 100m back (1:05.25, 4th), 100m free (57.30, 4th), 200m back (2:19.36, 4th), 200m free (2:04.97, 5th), and 50m back (30.86, 4th).
Sande now will have a little time off as her next meet isn’t until April in Kenora.
But Taylor will resume intensive training right away as he prepares for the Ontario championships in London in three weeks.
