Nice weekend at the AAA championship in Quebec City where our two representatives have done well.

On the side of Alyssa Ball, she participated in the grand finals “A” in all the events in which she participated, ie 6 events in total.

Even if she did not get on the podium, she managed to lower three personal records in the 200 freestyle, 200 breaststroke and 100 freestyle.

Congratulations to you both for representing us well on the provincial scene!
