Ontario Age Group Championships

Brantford February 26-March 1 – We sent a team of three to the Ontario Age Group Championships to compete against the best under 18 swimmers in Ontario. Our small team had huge success winning 3 medals, posting lots of best times and placing 40th out of the 84 teams in attendance(19 teams didn’t even score a point).

Ethan Placek(13) continues his Championship meet domination! On the heels of his medal winning swims at the Ontario Winter Festival(Provincial meet for 13 and under swimmers), Ethan  won bronze medals in 100m and 200m freestyle. Ethan also posted top 8 finishes in 50m and 400m freestyle and 100m butterfly. With the new best times he posted, Ethan is now qualified for five Age Group National Championship events.

Judson Nickerson(14) had a great weekend dropping almost 50 seconds in his races and winning a bronze in the 1500m freestyle. Also, his quest to qualify for Age Group National Championships was realized with his best time and 6th place swim in the 800m freestyle. Judson now has the 3 qualifying times required to compete at the national championships.

Ben Potvin(15) posted terrific best times in both the 100m butterfly( 1:03.16) and 200m butterfly( 2:23) dropping nearly 6.5 seconds in the two races.

Congratulations Ethan, Judson and Ben!
