Megan Lewis

The social and the serious aspects of swimming blend together well for Megan Lewis, 12, of the Duncan Stingrays.

The Grade 7 student at George Bonner Middle School has the Richmond meet coming up immediately on her calendar and is also bound for AA provincials in the 50-metre freestyle.

Lewis swims four times a week and thoroughly enjoys it.

“The fitness and I like competing a lot,’’ she said. “I like to win. You get to meet a lot of very nice people and make lots of friends.’’

Fly and free are her favourite strokes and she has a definite focus heading into Richmond.

“Right now, I think we’re really working on our technique in our strokes and closer to the meet, we’ll be working exactly on the events we will be doing to try to build up the muscle and the strength we need to complete our events successfully,’’ Lewis said.

“She’s swimming really well,’’ said assistant coach Colleen Smith. “We see a lot of potential in her.’’
