Never before has the club had so many athletes qualify for national championships in a single year, according to a KCKC press release.
“As our club continues to grow, we have seen our results get stronger and stronger both at provincial and national level,” KCKC head coach Stanislav Marek said in the press release. “It’s just one achievement that has resulted in a lot of hard work from many people – athletes, coaches, parents and volunteers.”
Miyana Fenrich and Leilani Vanderydt also posted qualifying times for Nationals, but are not eligible to compete in the event, according to the press release.
