Langley Olympians show team spirit

In addition to a significant medal haul, the Langley Olympians were rewarded for their team spirit.

The local swim club took home the team spirit award at the West Coast Open swim meet hosted by the Richmond Rapids Swim Club last week.

The meet featured some of the top swimmers from around the Lower Mainland and the Olympians more than held their own, capturing 15 gold medals, 10 silver and three bronze medals.

Leading the way was 10-year-old Josie Field, who won six gold and a bronze.

Twelve-year-old Renae Ledoux, who won three gold and two silver and Pearl Schramm, 10, who  won four gold and two silver medals.

Other medal winners included:

Bailey Herbert (one gold); Brayden Kells (one gold, three silver); Sarah Buckingham (one silver, one bronze); Kelley MacDonald (two silver); Bennett MacDonald (one bronze).

Buckingham and Taya Miller also achieved personal bests in all of their events.

Registration for the Langley Olympians Swim Club is ongoing and they are currently offering a free month to new members.
