Burlington Masters Swim Club placed 3rd out of 52 clubs from around Ontario at the Ontario Provincial Masters Swimming Championships in Windsor the last weekend in March. 28 swimmers represented the club at the meet accumulating an impressive array of age group medals in both individual and relay events. This follows on the heels of a 2012 third place finish and 2013 second in the Provincial Championships. BMSC is a force in Ontario masters swimming.
The accumulated total of 2972 points was an impressive accomplishment. With 20 points for first place in an individual event and 40 points for a first place finish in a relay, the total represents a large number of strong finishes by the team. Only London Silver Dolphins and Thornhill Masters, both with much larger teams, had higher scores.
Nationals and Worlds are next on the agenda
The team’s next challenge will be at the National Championships, May 16-19, also in Windsor at the new state-of-the-art Windsor International Aquatic and Training Centre. In August there will be a contingent from Burlington going to the FINA World Masters Aquatics Championships in Montreal.
