LETHBRIDGE - The Lethbridge Pronghorns swim team, fresh off a successful Canada West Championships, is already looking towards the future.

The team announced on Tuesday afternoon that two local products, Raine Arden and Chris Alexander from the LASC Swim Club, will be joining the program for 2018-19.

Head Coach Peter Schori says Arden and Alexander will each have a big impact on their program.

"In addition to their individual events, they're going to make an immediate impact on our relays. Alexander will join the Pronghorns as our top backstroker, and Arden is going to help us a lot in the 100 and 200 free events," Schori said, adding that both swimmers are going to make a positive contribution to their culture and training environment.

A release states that Arden is a sprint and mid-distance freestyle specialist who was a medalist at the 2017 Western Canadian Games, and a finalist at the Canadian Junior Championships. He also won a silver medal in the 50-metre freestyle, and was fourth in the 100 metre.

Alexander, a backstroke specialist, was also a medalist at this past year's Western Canadian Championships Calgary. He also claimed a bronze medal in the 100-metre backstroke.

The Pronghorns head into the semester break, but continue to prepare for the U SPORTS Championships that will be held in Toronto in February.
