The speed swimming season is winding down for another year. Provincials were held this past weekend in Watrous. Rosetown was well represented with seven swimmers at the tournament. Of the seven, five competitors were able to take home medals in at least on of their events.

Kris Wenzel, Team Manager, said overall, it was a great end to their season, "We had a great season. Again, we remain to be a small club but there's really enthusiastic young swimmers coming up that are really enjoying swimming and have really shown great progress. We are hoping to continue to fly in the younger age group and expand."

Provincials marked the end of the season for the Rosetown Royals. The team had their last practice on Thursday in Biggar.

The Royals do have some exciting news coming out of the 2017 season. Rosetown was accepted as the host for the Provincial Summer Swim Meet in 2019. This will be the first time since 2005 Rosetown has hosted this event.

Wenzel said that it was long overdue for Rosetown to host the meet, "Being that there's multiple clubs around the province, you want to take a turn. You put in a bid for provincials and being that it has been so long, it was highly encouraged that Rosetown take in it in the year 2019."

All of the members currently with the team have not yet been involved in organizing this type of tournament. The group does one home meet each season but nothing compared to the size of a provincial meet.

"It's going to be a huge undertaking." Wenzel said it will be a real group effort to put it together, "We will be definitely asking some questions to previous club members on how they were able to run it successfully."
