The Bay Roberts Sea Lions came roaring back in 2019 to start a new win streak as the provincial summer swimming champions.
The summer swim club went 25-straight years as the summer swimming champions in Newfoundland and Labrador prior to seeing that streak end last season when it finished second, missing out on extending the streak by a mere four points.
But the Bay Roberts club came back strong this past summer season, reclaiming its provincial champions title with hopes of starting a new streak.
At a recent end-of-season banquet, swimmers celebrated the victory. The team also took time to recognize the achievements of its members.
Coaches choice awards were presented to Luke Dyke, Claire Hiscock, Mya Gallant and Lorelei Norman. Alex Franey and Ella Akerman were recognized as the most sportsmanlike swimmers for the team. Awards for the most spirited swimmers went to Bridget Franey and Luke Dawson.
