The AOSC team poses for a picture after competing in Langley on Sunday.

The Abbotsford Olympians Swim Club returned to the pool on Sunday, and swimmer Nevaeh Thomson excelled.

Thomson, 10, achieved a regional qualifying time in the 200 metres individual medley, with a time of 3:56:98. The time enables Thomson to compete in regional meets in the Lower Mainland.

Sunday marked the first novice meet of the season for the AOSC, with a total of 16 swimmers attending the meet at the Walnut Grove Community Centre in Langley. AOSC swimmers battled the Langley Olympians, the Haney Seahorses and the Hyack Swim Club.

The Abbotsford Olympians Swim Club is always looking for new swimmers who enjoy the water. There is a group for everyone regardless of skill. The only requirements are: swimmers must be between five and 18 years old, must be able to complete one length of the pool (25 m) comfortably on their own, and must be comfortable being in deep water.
