Ketchikan, Wrangell swim virtually

KETCHIKAN (KDN) — The Ketchikan Killer Whales swim club hosted a virtual — or postal — meet for the 10-and-under squad on Saturday. Wrangell’s swim club also joined the Killer Whales, partaking in the event.

Along with Ketchikan, swim clubs in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau, Craig, Haines and Seward also will host the virtual event throughout the entire month of December. Complete statewide results will be compiled together following the final meet, and awards will be presented in January.

On Saturday, 24 swimmers set 35 personal records, between the Ketchikan and Wrangell squads.

Here are Saturday’s results:
