KAMLOOPS - Slowly but methodically, Brad Dalke is putting together a larger swim program for Thompson Rivers University.
Entering his second season at the helm of the WolfPack’s newest team, Dalke has increased the number of athletes in the program to five for the 2015-16 Canada West campaign.
Dalke is pleased to announce that one of his top swimmers from the Kamloops Classics team has signed a letter of intent to compete for Thompson Rivers in the fall.
Sadie Keim will be graduating from South Kamloops Secondary in June and will swim along with taking courses intended to acquire a Bachelor of Science Degree. Her long term goal is to go into forensics.
“Sadie has swam for our club since she was 10 years old,” says Dalke. “She has been in our top group for three years.”
“I was thinking of several universities in the Lower Mainland,” said the eloquent Keim. “I chose Thompson Rivers because it was closer to home and I wanted to spend my first two years of school still swimming. I like Brad as a coach. I like our home pool.”
Keim considers her best events being the 800 meter and 200 meter freestyle. Dalke is pencilling her into the 400 free, the 800 free and the 200 fly disciplines.
She is looking forward to training alongside second year swimmers Jagdeesh Uppal (Kamloops, B.C.) and Sarah McChesney (Prince Rupert, B.C.) as the WolfPack program continues to build momentum.
Keim is the second recruit committing thus far to WolfPack Swimming for 2015-16. The other is Taylor Carmichael of Merritt, B.C. Carmichael and Keim are teammates with the Classics swim program this spring.
Competitive swimming runs in Keim’s family. Her cousin Dylana Milobar (daughter of Kamloops Mayor Peter Milobar) is in the second year of a scholarship at California State University: Bakersfield.?
