The former Chilliwack Spartan swimmer represented Simon Fraser University at the 2016 NCAA Division II Men’s and Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships
The meet wrapped up Sunday on the campus of Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis.
Peterson competed in the 800 metre freestyle relay with teammates Gabriel Lee, MacKenzie Hamill and Adrian VanderHelm.
The foursome finished seventh but clocked a new Clan all-time record with a final time of 6:34.32.
Individuals or teams finishing within the top eight earn All-American status.
Peterson is finishing up a tremendously successful freshman season at SFU. The GW Graham grad will be joined by another Spartan alum next season when Jessie Gibson joins the Clan.
