SWIM earns 13 first place finishes at Laurier Invitational
WATERLOO, Ont. (January 29, 2018) – The Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks swim team put in a strong performance in their host meet, the Laurier Invitational, on Sunday afternoon at the Athletic Complex as they won 13 of 30 races in a head-to-head showdown with the Waterloo Warriors.

Leading the way for the Hawks was the women’s team as they capture seven first place finishes, highlighted by a pair of win from Jasmine Raines of Kitchener, Ont., and Nathalie Stackhouse of London, Ont.

Raines won gold in the 100m freestyle, thanks to a time of one minute, 3.52 seconds, and in the 200m breaststroke, touching the wall in 2:38.86.

Meanwhile, Stackhouse collected first place finishes in the 50m breaststroke, winning in 37.12, and the 100m breaststroke, posting a time of 1:20.38.

Other Laurier women to earn first place finishes included Jocelyn Chassie of Kirkland Lake, Ont., in the 100m butterfly (1:12.70), Bayley Dalbec of Brampton, Ont., in the 200m individual medley (2:41.37), and Stephanie Yue of Hong Kong, in the 100m backstroke (1:09.64).

In the men’s races, Max Hughes of Toronto, was the top performer for the purple and gold as he captured a pair of races. In the 200m backstroke, he touched the wall in 2:13.47, setting a new personal best by over six seconds, while in the 200m individual medley, he finished in 2:20.69.

Other Laurier men to win gold on the day included Nick Misner of Brantford, Ont., in the 100m breaststroke (1:11.78), Michael Neves of Brampton, Ont., in the 200m freestyle (2:02.93), rookie Connor Norval of Richmond Hill, Ont., in the 200m butterfly (2:14.82) and Kenney Tam of Markham, Ont., in the 50m breaststroke (32.55).

The Hawks will now turn their attention to the 2018 OUA Championships, hosted by the Western Mustangs from February 8-10, where the women will look to build on their seventh place team finish from a year ago while the men will try to move up from tenth place.
