UCSC Boys Break Three Canadian 15-17 NAG Relay Records At OJI; ESWIM Girls Claim Two

2022 ONTARIO JUNIOR INTERNATIONAL (OJI)

In the six relays contested at the Ontario Junior International meet, five saw the Canadian National Age Group Record fall by the wayside.

The University of Calgary Swim Club boys obliterated all three marks in the 15-17 category, while the Etobicoke Swimming girls took down two of them and came incredibly close on the third.

GIRLS’ 400 FREESTYLE RELAY

The Etobicoke girls’ 400 free relay quartet of Elan Daley (17) Delia Lloyd (15), Maya Bezanson (15) and Ella Jansen (17) finished in a time of 3:38.88 to take more than two seconds off the previous 15-17 NAG record of 3:40.97, set by a Toronto Swim Club squad that featured Penny Oleksiak on the anchor leg at the 2017 OJI meet.
