What a summer for the CGC Swim Academy!
Team spirit, hard work, record setting, friendships and fun all describe the CGC Swim Academy’s summer season. To wrap up this exciting season, CGCSA competed at Provincials in Bedford on the weekend of August 17th-19th, where they took 5th place overall with a record high of 2,168 points and 2nd place in the Small Team category!
Also from these results, we had 3 swimmers qualify for Nova Scotia All-Stars Team:
- Keilen Bellis (Boys 13-14)
- Senali Jayawarna (Girls 10&U)
- Neil Wang (Boys 10&U)
Special mention goes out to Keilen Bellis and Nathan Mendel. Keilen broke 4 Provincial Records in Boys 13-14 – 100m Butterfly (1:07.26), 50m Breaststroke (33.78), 100m Breaststroke (1:14.52), and 200m Individual Medley (2:33.34). He also tied for the High Point Male award with 250 points. Meanwhile, Nathan was awarded the title of Assistant Coach of the Year (which was fully supported by Head Coach Lauren Ching and Coach Mallory Newman).
