Clapham Clan in fine form in Brantford
by Randy Pascal

The “Clapham Clan” was in particularly fine form as a delegation of fourteen swimmers representing the Nickel City Aquatics travelled to Brantford last weekend, site of the Division II Ontario Team Showdown.

Finishing 18th overall in the team results, the NCA squad were led first and foremost by veteran Joshua Clapham, who qualified for five finals, including one that secured a bronze medal in the 100m breaststroke.

Aislinn Munro continued on her path of progress, adding to the team point total with a pair of final eight performances, as well as a well executed 400 IM morning timed final. Racing to a significant PB, Matt Clapham surprised with an eighth place finish in the 50m freestyle, helping to bump NCA up the ladder in the overall team results.

Remaining highlights included the ability of 10 year old Shane Clapham to step in and anchor the 11-12 200m freestyle relay team, swimming an “awesome final leg”, in the words of head coach Alain Delorme.

In fact, the end of the meet relays provided several memorable moments for the local club, as Finn Loewen overtook a fellow competitor in the boys 13-14 200m IM relay, out-touching in the final few metres.

Jack Brush also enjoyed a meet to remember, hitting the qualifying standard for the Dave Kensit Meet in February in the 200m breast stroke. Remaining NCA athletes who competed in Brantford were Tristen Aikia-Lauzon, Tommaso Deni, Quinn Gardner, Sydney Gardner, Georgia Lepage, Keegan Lepage, Lainna Munro and Niko Ovaska.
