We had a great meet at the inaugural ROD Prairie Cup in Regina December 14-16. LASC won the the Small Team title with just nine swimmers. The small team award was for teams with 15 or fewer swimmers in the meet. Our boys (5 swimmers) placed 3rd in all team scoring and our girls (4 swimmers) placed 6th, combining for 5th overall.
Joshua Freund won gold in all 8 events(400 Free, 50/200 Back, 100/200 Breast, 100/200/400 IM) he swam in the 11-12 boys division and won the combined gender 11-12 aggregate award. Congratulations Josh!
