Penticton Pikes attended a swim meet in Revelstoke over the weekend.

More than 350 swimmers were there; 10 teams from all over the province.

The Pikes had a small group of swimmers, yet placed fifth overall in team points due to the swimmers performing extremely well.

Head coach Elliot Clarke said this was a good meet in preparation for regionals as all of the top regional swimmers attended. He also noted that there are many Pikes swimmers this year that will be in contention for medals at regionals.

Penticton will host the top swimmers in the region Aug. 3 and 4, at the Penticton Aquatic centre.

The top three swimmers in each category will move through to provincials, to be held in Coquitlam in mid August.
