Creel Wins First PCS National Medal

Edmonton - Pacific Coast Swimming's David Creel won the silver medal in the men's 800 freestyle on the first day of the 2002 Canadian Open Swimming Championships. This was the first medal won by a PCS swimmer at a National Championships, but will certainly not be the last. In a tight race for the silver medal Creel held off challenges from two swimmers over the final two hundred meters to post a personal best time of 8:07.20. Creel will be looking for more medals in the 400 and 1500 freestyle races later in the weekend.

In the women's 800 freestyle Karley Stutzel placed 6th in a time of 8:55.34.
