The Ontario Junior International Meet attracted the best 18 and under swimmers from across the country and also from Great Britain, Japan and New Zealand! This was an open competition where age is irrelevant, all swimmers had to compete for a spot in the Open A and B finals, no age groups! Making the finals for MSSAC were Nicholas Fauteux in the 50fr, 50fl and 100fl, Sean Murray in the 50fr and 100fr, Roxie Ramirez in the 400fr, Angela Saarloos in the 50br, Art Saarloos in the 50bk and 50fr and unfortunately the backstroke ledge broke on his start in the 100bk, Colin Wang made finals in the 50fr and rounding out swimmers that achieved 2nd swims was Jackie Mariano who had an outstanding meet making finals in the 50fr.
The boys 400 free relay of Sean Murray, Colin Wang, Art Saarloos and Nick Fauteux set a new club record on their way to a 6th place finish. These boys have some real speed with Colin ranked 2nd in Canada, Art ranked 5th in Canada and Nick ranked 7th in Canada in the 16 year old boys 50fr, pretty impressive to have 3 guys in the top 7!! The boys also swan a top 8 time in the 400 medley relay.
The following swimmers swam lifetime best times at the meet: Veronica Hollick, Sean Murray, Angela Saarloos, Art Saarloos, Jackie Mariano and Colin Wang.
