Nanooks Swim Team splits tri-meet

BURNABY, Bc-It's always said or believed that when a team has to travel across time-zones and borders that it's understandable if a team comes out flat. Make sense with the jet lag and body clocks being off etc. Any team can make that excuse but the Nanook swimmers didn't Saturday splitting a tri-meet with Puget Sound and Simon Fraser in Burnaby, British Columbia just 24 hours removed from their higher elevation training in Flagstaff, Az. The Nanooks lapped Puget Sound with an 80-37 win and then number 15 Simon Fraser surpassed the Nanooks 75-44.

Junior Bente Heller won the 100 freestyle her signature event in 59.28 seconds and took third in the 50 free. Margo Adams, the sophomore won the 100 butterfly in under a minute five seconds. Danielle Lyons won the 200 individual medley. The relay team of Heller, Adams, Lyons, and Gabi Summers won the 200 freestyle relay.

Simon Fraser won 9 individual events and the top three spots in two races.

The Nanooks are now 3-3 and will see Simon Fraser again at the end of the month in the Patty Center Pool.
