Creel, Downing medalists at Canada Cup-Grand Prix

Several UVPCS senior swimmers and coaches Ron Jacks and Peter Vizsolyi travelled to Toronto November 28-30 to compete in the Canada Cup Grand Prix event at the Etobicoke Olympium.

David Creel capped the weekend with 800 Freestyle Silver, 1500 Freestyle Bronze and fifth place in the 400 Freestyle. MacKenzie Downing was Silver in 200 Butterfly, breaking her own two-year-old meet record (of course, Gold medalist Elaine Breeden from Stanford also broke that record); MacKenzie was also seventh in 100 Butterfly. Whitney Buczkowski was fifth in 50 Backstroke and also eleventh from B-finals in 100 Backstroke, while Nicholas Sinclair was sixth in 200 Backstroke with a B-final eleventh place in 100 Backstroke. Also competing in B-finals, Cody Flegel was eleventh in 100 Freestyle and David Vizsolyi was sixteenth in 200 Butterfly. The men’s 800 Freestyle Relay team – Nick Sinclair, David Creel, Cody Flegel and Richard Weinberger – finished eighth.

The weekend also marked Greg Streppel’s induction into the SNC Circle of Excellence - for details, see the previous news story below. Finally, David Vizsolyi posted his CIS seasonal qualifying time at the meet, bringing the Vikes early-season CIS qualifying count to nine.

Congratulations to our coaches and swimmers – and, as always,complete results are posted on our results page.
