The Tigers Swim Team won its 3rd straight provincial championship yesterday!
Our 17 member team competed with over 1200 participants at Watermania in Richmond on Friday and Saturday (Nov 16-17).
Jr. P.E. Teacher Megan Dalziel was in attendance:
I have just returned home from watching an incredible team performance by our York House swim team at the Provincial Championships. When I walked into the aquatics center in Richmond I was absolutely flabbergasted by the size of this event. There were over 1200 participants. I want to acknowledge the tremendous efforts of Scott Abt who not only organizes and coaches our team but organized the entire event as the Aquatics Commissioner for BC School Sports. We don’t always get to see first hand the dedication and efforts of our swimmers as it is an entirely off campus team. I think it is important to celebrate this amazing accomplishment 3 straight Provincial Championships. Congratulations to all of our swimmers and their coaches.
York House Alum Robyn Wilson added the following (York House School Facebook page):
Huge shout out to Whitney Lum (York House alumnae and a graduated Queens and Guelph varsity swimmer) who co-coached the York House swim team. All of the time that she put in over the last couple of months coaching the girls and sharing her swimming knowledge has paid off for the third year in a row. Whit- you’re awesome! Let the York swimming dynasty continue!
What an amazing weekend for our senior swimmers!
