Mori Leads Way As Pronghorns Open 2000-2001 Season
Oct 31, 2000
Fifth year education major Brad Mori of Markham, Ontario, lead the way for the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns as they opened the season at the LA Swim Club's Fall Invitational. Mori's 100 breast swim of 1:05.3 and 200 at 2:31 (1:15/1:15) demonstrated some of the technical improvements being worked on early in the CIAU season.
Joining Mori with strong early season performances were members of a strong returning female squad. CIAU finalist Linsay Mclennan, Leduc, AB, looked strong posting wins in the 400 free and 200 IM while Lethbridge native Michelle Stauffer earned aggregate honours with top 3 swims in all six of her events. Jennifer Radolla, a Williams Lake, BC native swam near lifetime best performances in the 100 and 200 backstroke and looks to be a potential finalist at CIAU's in these events.
A young and inexperienced group of freshman's showed great promise over the weekend. Lethbridge's Mark Dewar looked strong with an easy negative split 400 freestyle win and Calgary natives Megan Eubank and Laurel Sherwood posted lifetime best swims only six weeks into the season.
The Pronghorns compete next in Calgary, November 10-12 and in Edmonton Nov 18-19 at the Canadian stop of the World Cup competitions.
