Pronghorns swimmers post historic results at nationals

The University of Lethbridge Pronghorns swim team posted a record-setting weekend in Quebec City, returning home with five medals and a pair of impressive records.

Overall, the U SPORTS Championships were a special one for the program. The team of seven athletes set a Canadian record, two provincial records, nine school records, earned four All-Canadian awards and earned five medals, securing the program’s first national medals since 2005.

The five national medals are the most ever for the Pronghorns swim team at one national championship, with the previous high being four individual medals in 2000.
"We had so many special moments during the championship," said Pronghorns head coach Peter Schori. "All of our seven swimmers scored points in the finals and our relays were extraordinary!"
