Her brother Matt came home with 4 bronze medals in the 17 year old boys age group, and Maggie MacNeil swam to 2 third place finishes in the 11 year old girls category, as well as 2 4th and 2 5th place finishes. Others who finished in the top 8 were Jessica Allen, Shayna Lewis, Nicholas Mitchell and Aiden Riekenbrauck.

Finally, first-time Junior Provincial competitors Lauren Blaha, Nathan Lethbridge, Kexin Meng, William Stewart and Paige Walker all competed with the confidence of seasoned veterans!
