Vikes Continue to Shine at Canada West Championships

Fourth Year Vikes swimmer Philip Weiss added another Canada West gold medal to his collection on Day 2 at the Swimming Championships in Calgary. Weiss, two-time UVic Athlete of the Year, won the men's 100 metre butterfly event in a personal best time of 55.14. This is Weiss' first year back in the pool after a break from the sport for two years. Jesse Jacks won his third medal of the weekend picking up the bronze in a time of 55.23.

David Creel continued his success with a silver medal performance in the men's 400 Individual Medley. Creel was gaining on the leader with every stroke over the last 50 metres but ran out of pool and had to settle for the silver. Creel has visited all three podium spots over the first two days of the competition.

On the women's side the flu has taken its toll on the team but there have been some good performances all round. Karley Stutzel won the consolation final of the women's 200 freestyle dropping three seconds from her heat time.

Competition continues Sunday. Watch for Dave Creel to pick up another medal in the 400 freestyle while Jacks and Weiss will battle for the medals in the 200 butterfly.
