Samuel Matthew continues to be the bright light for the Nelson Neptunes on the Kootenay Summer  Swim Association.

The Division three swimmer won another gold medal during the latest stop on the KSSA schedule Sunday in Colville, Wash.

Matthew won his third gold medal of the season to lead the Neptune medal haul.

The Brager kids — Jakob in Division one boys and Kourtney in Division three girls — each won silver medals while Kiandra McLaren also took home a second place finish in Division six girls.

Also winning silver was Neptune assistant coach Rebecca Afford, edging sister Melissa in Division seven girls.

Sage Cowan completed the medal haul for Nelson, winning bronze in Division four girls.

Nelson finished well down the pack in team standings, placing sixth in the eight-team field.

Trail Stingrays captured top stop edging host Colville.

Castlegar Aquanauts finished third ahead of surging Grand Forks and Kimberley.

Matthew and the Neptunes return to the pool Saturday for a meet in Castlegar.
