Team Report – Nifty-Fifty LC at Brock University

St. Catharines, May 5-6, 2012   Recently, 45 of our swimmers travelled down the QEW to Brock University’s Eleanor Misener Aquatic Centre for the Nifty-Fifty Long course meet. For some of our youngest swimmers, this was their 1st long course meet but they tackled that 50m pool like pros. With many top 5 finishes and some amazing personal bests – we’re looking forward to seeing the majority of this group swim at June’s Team Champs meet – look out here we come! Great job dolphins!
