Hood River Valley Swim Team sent team members (from left) Chad Klass, Emilio Castaneda, Nadia Smith, Allie Burke and Celilo Brun to the 11-14 Oregon Swimming Championships last weekend at the Osborn Aquatic Center in Corvallis. Highlighting their weekend of racing that saw best times in almost every event the five competed in, were top 10 finishes from Brun (7th 200 IM), Burke (9th 1,650 freestyle), Castaneda (8th 200 IM, 7th 100 fly, 5th 200 freestyle) and Klass (4th, 100 fly).
For Klass and Castaneda, times in their 100 fly and 200 freestyle respectively were fast enough to qualify for the Age Group Regional meet next month.
