Upper Canada College’s varsity swim team has dominated the Conference of Independent Schools of Ontario Athletic Association (CISAA) throughout this decade, and that continued with three more titles on Feb. 22 at the University of Toronto Athletic Centre.
It was “another absolutely brilliant and phenomenal day” in the pool for the UCC boys, according to coach Vlad Roytberg.
UCC won the overall CISAA boys championship for the seventh consecutive year, the open boys championship for the sixth time in seven years and the U16 championship for the sixth time in 10 years. The senior boys finished second. When combining overall points, from male and female swimmers, the Blues still finished third among all schools despite the absence of any female competitors.
All six UCC relay teams qualified for the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations championships in Windsor on March 7 and 8. The College will be represented at that event by about 20 swimmers.
