Dalhousie’s domination in the pool continued this past weekend at the AUS invitational meet at the Dalplex.

Dal was on top of the podium for 17 of the 19 women’s events. In the two events that the women did not place first, they were still on the podium for a top three finish. The manly Tigers also knocked the competition out of the water, placing first in 15 of 19 races.

This was another highlight meet for third-year Keisha Mills, who broke an AUS and Dal record in the 200 breaststroke.

Molly Wedge, Ceilidh Macpherson, Meagan Bernier, Michelle Campbell, Emmalina Corriveau, Rachel Shin, Audrey Prayal-Brown, Katherine Webster and the relay groups also came in first place for the women. The men’s side is represented by Nigel Champion, Kyle Watson, Cameron Shin, Chris Reith, Brad Piggott, Kit Moran, Nicholas Taylor and the three relay teams.

This was the last time the team will compete at the Dalplex this season.

The AUS championships will take place at UPEI from Feb. 8 to 10.

The Tigers are looking to take home their 15th straight championship for the men and 12th consecutive women’s banner.
