Don Velarde also got a silver lining in 25-metre backstroke (18.31) for nine-and-10-year-old boys. His time in 50-metre backstroke (40.38) earned him bronze.

The biggest multi-medalist was Evan Klemen, who earned a trio of bronze medals for his times in 50-metre freestyle (30.52), 100-metre freestyle (1:07.70) and 50-metre fly (33.50) for 11-12-year-old boys.

Coach Kristen Irvine competed and took third in her 400-metre freestyle event (5:25.32).

In total, a dozen Vipers competed at provincials, along with seven relay teams. Taber Viper Swim Club ends its season with its awards this week.
