Four years ago we had two Dad’s Club swimmers earn second swims at their respective Olympic Trials competitions.

Alexandra Buscher earned her second swim in the finals of the 200 fly at the Canadian Trials held in Toronto.  At the time of the meet Alexandra was in her sophomore year at Texas A&M University. Alexandra had represented Canada at the Junior Pan pacific Championships held in Maui a couple of years earlier.
