Several Chilliwack athletes brought home numerous medals from last week's BC Senior Games in Kamloops.
Neil Reeder led the way in the pool with nine medals.
Reeder won gold in the 25-metre breaststroke and freestyle events, along with the 100-metre breaststroke. The Times routing agent also claimed silver in the 25-metre backstroke, 50-metre breaststroke and the 200-metre freestyle relay. Reeder added bronze medals in the 100-metre freestyle relay, 25-metre butterfly and the 100-metre medley relay.
"It was really a surprise," Reeder said of his nine-medal haul. "I expected to get clobbered this year. I moved up an age group [to the 65-to-69-year-old class] and some of the guys there are really, really good."
