Coquitlam’s Dimitar Ivanov, Alexandria Schofield and Port Moody’s Lauren Swistak earned their share of podium time on behalf of the Simon Fraser University swim teams at the season-opening meet at the University of Puget Sound on Saturday.
Schofield collected gold in the women’s 200-metre freestyle event with a time of 2:11.70, while Ivanov, who like Schofield is a third-year swimmer for SFU, achieved the same in the men’s 200m free with a time of 1:58.90. He would also add the men’s 200m backstroke gold medal with a finish of 2:07.84.
Both carried that winning feeling into the medley relay pool, with Schofield’s foursome edging out a fellow SFU squad, which included Swistak and Coquitlam’s Charlene Hew, for top honour. Ivanov contributed to the men’s 200m relay win.
In the 200m butterfly, Swistak soared past the competition with a winning time of 2:17.83, nearly eight seconds faster than her nearest rival.
