Harper Rudkavich is having the time of her life and the Parkland Gators Swim Club is one of the reasons why.

With the club for her second year in the pool, Harper's favourite event is the 50m freestyle and one of her most enjoyable parts of getting the chance to swim with the Gators is making new friends from other teams that the club goes up against.

As the Gators season continues in the pool, Harper is also very driven to achieve one of her biggest goals.

"My goal is to get faster at backstroke, it's something I am working very hard towards," said Rudkavich of Dauphin.

In a recent meet in Brandon, Harper put together an extremely impressive event. She finished fifth in the 25m kickstroke event and she racked up a pair of silver medals finishing second in the 25m freestyle and 50m freestyle. Harper also finished with a bronze medal in the 25m backstroke race.

As the snow begins to disappear, Harper is also looking forward to spending plenty of time on the pitch this summer. Harper plays within the Dauphin Soccer Association as the sport is one of her passions.

"I'm a fast runner and that's one of the key things in soccer, you have to be fast," ended Rudkavich.

When it comes down to a nice post-swim meal, Harper loves heading to Subway.
