The Candy Cane meet saw six dive clubs and 153 athletes from across the province compete at the event, which was a record.

Two Kelowna athletes nabbed podium spots. Yvonnne Davis took second in the 1/3 metre board, with an 88.50 jump in the 'Learn to Dive' Group F girls category.

Marshall Daniel, also in 'Learn to Dive,' took a silver in the 1/3 metre board with a 229.5 jump in the Group B boys category.

Other competitors in 'Learn to Dive' were Mara Hyland (fourth in Group D girls), Kenzie Tarasoff-Redekop (ninth in Group D girls) and Euan Garrison (sixth in Group C boys).

In the novice pre-competitive group, Simon Barr, Violet Lastavec, Gabrielle Burge and Presley Furby each dove from one and three-metre boards, garnering mostly top ten results.

Finally, in the masters 18+ event, Anna Ruckstuhl competed, conquering her fear of competing front one and a half and back dive tuck on the three-metre board.
