December 3, 2012, RICHMOND, British Columbia – The Trinity Western University swim teams put together an impressive weekend at the Richmond Rapids Fastswim 2012, which ran from Nov. 30 to Dec. 2, as the Spartans had 18 podium finishes in what was arguably their best team performance in program history.

The Spartans had six first place finishes, led by Kirby Johnson – who finished first four times, winning the 100m, 200m and 400m freestyle and the 200m Individual Medley – six second place finishes and six third place finishes.

Johnson, along with his four first place finishes, also had one second place finish in the 100m breaststroke, and two third place finishes, in the 50m and 200m breast.

Also on the men’s side, Patrick Loftus finished first in the 200m backstroke and Nick Welychko had a first place finish in the 400m IM. While Brian MacPhail didn’t manage a first place finish, he did have three second place finishes, in the 50m breast and 200m and 400m IM.

On the women’s side, the Spartans best result was Kiely Cunningham’s second place finish in the 50m breast. Anna de Tar’s best result of the weekend was a sixth place finish in the 50m freestyle.
