Mia Bottrill finished her age group swim career on the podium.
The 18-year-old Hyack club swimmer earned a bronze medal at the Canadian Swimming Championships in Pointe-Claire, Que. earlier this month.
Bottrill, who recently won a national title in the 16/18 girls’ 200-metre butterfly at the age group nationals in Quebec City, placed fourth days later at the senior nationals in the 200m fly.
Bottrill’s time was 2:17.60, beating Oakville, Ont. teen Mabel Zavaros to the wall by two one-hundredths of a second.
The Hyack club swimmer was awarded the bronze medal because an international swimmer from France finished in the top three at the open Canadian competition.
Chris Baker, who earlier won his first-ever national level medal with a bronze at the age group nationals in the 200m fly, achieved his first second-day swim at the senior nationals, earning a spot in the men’s B final, placing 14th overall.
At the national age group championships in Quebec City, Sehajvir Singh broke three Hyack club records.
Singh started the five-day competition breaking a Hyack boys’ record in the 200m backstroke with a 2:12.90 clocking in the preliminary heats. He wound up finishing fourth in the final.
Singh followed that up with a silver medal and a new club mark in the 400m individual medley with a record 4:45.58 time.
The 14-year-old Singh then set a third record on Day 4 in the 100m backstroke with a sizzling time of 1:02.40.
Also at the age groups, Octavia Lau, 13, won a silver medal in the girls’ 200m freestyle for the Hyacks. Lau also earned a bronze medal in the 100m free.
Other Hyack medallists at the age groups included 15-year-old Stella Jin tying for a bronze medal in the girls’ 100m fly before winning a second third-place medal in the fly sprint on the final day of competition.
Lau and Jin both placed fourth in their respective 50m free races on Day 3.
Zoe Froh, 13, also won a silver medal for the Hyacks in the 400m IM.
