VICTORIA – The University of Victoria Vikes swimming program has had a long-standing
tradition of success and that legacy is due to the quality of the annual incoming
recruits. Swimmer Rosie Moulton has committed to the Vikes for the upcoming 2014-15
season and the Mount Douglas Secondary grad has already stacked up an impressive
resume.

Moulton was a co-winner of the Stephanie Doney Trophy for the top grade 12 female
athlete in 2014 at Mount Douglas. The awarded is dedicated to a graduating female
athlete that demonstrates outstanding performance, commitment and dedication in one
more sports. This is the first time in four years that a swimmer has won the award.
Moulton shared the honour with swimming teammate Emily Ding and volleyball player
Emery Whitney.

“Rosie was an integral part of the Mt. Douglas swim team since her first days of
joining the team,” said Ted Meldrum, Athletic Director at Mt. Douglas Secondary. “It
was such a pleasure to recognize her achievements in grade 12 with the Stephanie
Doney award. I am sure she is going to do for UVic what she did for Mt. Douglas”

Moulton swam for the Victoria-based high school for three seasons until her
graduating year, where her performance peaked. In 2013, Moulton was also swimming
for UVic-PCS, where she went on to earn three medals at the 2013 BCSS Provincial
Championship hosted in Richmond, B.C. Moulton was a part of the 200m mixed medley
relay team that set a new provincial record in 2:03.52, beating the old record set
in 2011 (2:04.13). The swimmer took home gold in the 200m individual medley
(2:21.50) and also earned bronze in the 100m breast stroke (1:14.64).

Topping it off, Moulton was also given honour roll status upon graduating, a true
indication that UVic will be getting a top-notch student-athlete. Moulton will kit
up with the Vikes this fall under swimming head coach Dr. Peter
