Saint Lucia picked up three medals on the opening day of the XXIX Central American and Caribbean Amateur Swimming Championships (CCCAN) at the Barbados Aquatic Centre in Christ Church on Tuesday night.
Katie Kyle, a member of Sharks Swim Club, was up first, in the women’s 11-12 50m freestyle. Katie, also a medalist at the CARIFTA Swimming Championships earlier this year at the same venue, touched the wall in 28.66, her best swim ever, to take silver.
She was just edged by Danielle Titus of Barbados, who came in at 28.39, but both were well ahead of Costa Rica’s Natasha Solano, whose 29.37 got her bronze.
Also taking bronze was Terell Monplaisir, who lowered his time in the 200m breaststroke, though his time and full results were not immediately available.
He did, however, join Sea Jays teammates Jamarr Archibald, Jayhan Odlum-Smith and Ethan ‘Speedy’ Dyke-Elliott to take another bronze, this time in the 11-12 400m Medley Relay. Puerto Rico won in 4:42.09, with Costa Rica second in 4:42.37, whilst Saint Lucia ended in 4:44.98, slightly below the quartet’s previous best time.
CCCAN continues through the week in Barbados.
