Members of the Kinsmen Flying Fins walked away with nine medals at the Saskatoon Invitational meet over the weekend. 

Sixteen Moose Jaw swimmers competed against 350 swimmers from across Saskatchewan, Alberta and Manitoba. 

The Flying Fins had a strong meet that resulted in 79 per cent personal teams as a team. Abby Bowles, Elizabeth Colenutt, Rowan Gray, Dayna Newberry and Emily Lin achieved personal bests in all of their swims. 

Newberry had the team's swim of the meet when she reduced her lifetime best in the 400m Freestyle by over 1:43. She also had personal bests in her 100m and 200m Backstroke, breaking those best times by over 10 seconds. 

Lin broke her best time in the 100m Fly by over 20 seconds and reduced her 100m Backstroke time by over 12 seconds. Lin achieved four new "AA" provincial qualifying times for the Manitoba/Saskatchewan championships that will be held in Saskatoon in early July. 

Onyx Penner also had an outstanding swim, achieving lifetime bests in seven out of his eight swims. This was only his second 50m long-course swim meet. 

Cole Hrechka picked up three golds, two silvers and one bronze in all eight of his swims. He had five lifetime bests including his 50m Breaststroke which he reduced by over 13 seconds. 

Xander Penny picked up that other medal for the Flying Fins, placing third in the boys 11 and under 200m Individual Medley.
