Peterson powers SFU swim team

Chilliwack Spartan grad Colton Peterson continued his fine NCAA rookie swim season at the SFU Clan Cup International meet.

Chilliwack’s Colton Peterson was in the mix as his Simon Fraser University dominated the Clan Cup International swim meet.

Peterson and his SFU teammates won 10 of 14 races and captured all four relay events at the Margaret & Paul Savage pool.

Peterson, Gabriel Lee, Justin Kiedrzyn and Adrian VanderHelm combined to set a new Clan Cup record in the men’s 200 metre medley relay. Their mark of one minutes and 42.58 seconds shaved one-tenth of a second off the previous mark set in 2013.

Peterson was on the heartbreak side in the 200m individual medley, losing to SFU teammate James Cormier by the narrowest of margins (2:06.46 to 2:06.57).

This is the 19th year for the Clan Cup International and the first year for Peterson on the SFU crew.
