April 6, 2017
VICTORIA, British Columbia – Redshirt-senior Kyle Robrock (Savage, Minn.) finished with the top time in the 50 meter butterfly at the 2017 Canada Swimming Trials. Since Robrock and freshman Peter Webster (Odense, Denmark) are both not Canadians, they were not eligible for the A-Final on Thursday night. Webster finished with the 12th best time in the finals.
Junior and Croatian international Anton Loncar (Hillsboro, Ore.) turned in the fifth best time in the 100 back in the finals, following up a 55.52 in the prelims with a 55.51.
Freshman Colin Gilbert (Kamloops, B.C.) touched sixth in the A-Final in the 200 free, following up a 1:50.28 in the prelims with a 1:50.48 on Thursday.
Senior Johanna Roas (Munich, Germany), who was also not eligible for the A-Final in the 100 back, clocked in at 1:00.94 in the final, the seventh-best time in the evening session.
Robrock finished his night with the sixth-best time in the night session of the 100 back with a time of 55.51.
In the prelims on Thursday, Robrock finished first in the 50 butterfly with a time of 24.39. Robrock was later clocked in at 56.69 in the 100 back, good enough for an eighth place finish in the prelims. In the first swim following his freshman year, Webster touched seventh in the 50 butterfly at 25.03. Roas qualified for the A-Final in the 100 back with a seventh place finish in the prelims (1:01.22).
Junior Heidi Bradley (Victoria, B.C.) swam in the 50 butterfly and the 100 back prelims on Thursday morning. Bradley finished 24th in the 50 butterfly (28.63) and 19th in the 100 back (1:03.96).
