Small Team Champs Again!
Crest took home another Swim Ontario Small Team Award at the Summer Ontario Swimming Championships held June 27-30 at the Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre in Toronto, Ontario. The award recognizes a small team of 50 or fewer athletes which earn the most points – in individual or relay events – by placing in the top eight. This win comes on the heels of winning the Small Team Award at the Spring Ontario Youth-Junior Championships and the Spring Ontario Swimming Championships earlier this year.
Swimmers representing Crest at the Summer Ontario Swimming Championships included: Taylor Bird, Cezar Hirsescu, Benjamin Loewen, Kevin Park, Lucas Park, and Frederic Yoon.
On behalf of the Crest coaches and the Board of Directors, congratulations to our supportive parent community and our talented and hard-working swimmers on another amazing year!
