The Nelson Neptunes took home a fourth-place finish at the opening meet of the Kootenay Summer Swim Association season Sunday in Trail.

Lachlan Bibby-Fox turned in a gold medal performance in Division 2 Boys to lead the Neptune charge.

“We had lots of best times . . . overall, the team accomplished some excellent times at the first meet of the season.”

Nelson sent a small contingent of swimmers to Trail.
