Four local swimmers represented the Chatham Pool Sharks at the Swim Ontario Provincial Championships (50m pool) this past weekend at the Pan Am Pool in Toronto. This meet is the highest level of provincial competition offered and has fast qualifying times. Qualifying Sharks included David Tran, Genevieve Sasseville, Quinn Matteis, and Madison Broad.

These four individuals formed a mighty force. Their performances managed to win the Best Performing Team award. This award is for the team scoring the highest team points from swimmers who place in the top three in their events. The total points are divided by the total number of swimmers entered into the meet. Pool Sharks averaged 8.25 points per swimmer, the highest of the teams at the meet with a minimum of four swimmers.
