Ian Markus had a great showing placing second in both the 100 free and 200 free where he took 12.24 seconds off his personal best. Dylan Kormendy took second place in the 200 Fly taking off 8.72 seconds his personal best time. Aby Elwood, Sharman Thomas Jr both had several best times and both narrowly missed A finals in various swims.

“I am very proud of the kids for making the provincials and placing so well,” said Coach Andrea Wyers. “Their dedication to swimming and commitment to the vigorous GTSC training program is paying off for them and getting Provincial recognition for swimming in our area.”

Eden Kormendy and James Pilla of the GTSC will be competing in the Age Group Nationals in Montreal in the upcoming weeks.
