Langley trio set to swim for B.C.

There will be some local flavour in the water this weekend as an all-star swim meet invades the Walnut Grove Aquatic Centre.

The Langley Olympians Swim Club is co-hosting with Swim BC the annual Pacific Coast All-Stars meet.

And a trio of Olympians swimmers — 12-year-olds Robyn Nakano and Chelsea Borrowdale and 13-year-old Hillary Metcalfe — will represent Team BC.

Nakano is in the 100 fly, Borrowdale in the 200 individual medley and Metcalfe in the 100 and 200 breaststroke events, respectively.

The squad is made up of the top eight male and female swimmers for each age group from around the province.

They will be facing all-star squads from Southern California, Pacific Swimming (Northern California), Oregon and the Pacific Northwest.

The meet takes place on Saturday from 3:15 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 8:45 a.m. to noon.
