English Bay Swim Club wins both the League Trophy (Large Team category) and the Provincial Champions Trophy this year!

EBSC swimmers took home the most points, squeaking past Victoria Masters by a narrow margin at the Provincials over the weekend to claim the Provincial Champions Trophy. This will go along nicely with the League Trophy we captured at the end of the swim meet season.

Top 4 teams at Provincials:

  1. English Bay Swim Club 2633 pts
  2. Victoria Masters Swim Club 2615 pts
  3. North Shore Masters 2571 pts
  4. Winskill Otters 2474 pts
