Simon Fraser University swimming and diving head coach Liam Donnelly unveiled his 2015 mens’ recruiting class Wednesday, welcoming a Chilliwack Spartan into the fold.
Nineteen year old Colton Peterson has committed to the Clansmen, capping off a stellar season.
“Colton has been a fantastic addition to our team over the last eight years,” said his Spartan coach, Justin Daly. “He has provided us with endless enthusiasm, energy and comedy. I wish him all the success he deserves in the future and I am proud to have coached him all these years.”
At the Canadian World Championship trials, Peterson finished 22nd in the 200m long-course individual medley.
Peterson and fellow recruits Pablo Beltran Martinez (Valencia, Spain) and Mackenzie Hamill (Oakville, ON) bolster a mens’ program that competes at the NCAA level.
“We have a strong incoming freshman class and I expect several of our newcomers will qualify, compete and score at the NCAA championships,” said Donnelly. “It will be an exciting start in September.”
