Sackville Tribune - - SPORTS -

Moun­ties had a very suc­cess­ful month of Fe­bru­ary, and now owns ev­ery Mount Al­li­son Univer­sity freestyle record. Af­ter a five-medal per­for­mance at the AUS cham­pi­onships in midFe­bru­ary, Peters went on to the na­tional cham­pi­onships in Mon­treal from Feb. 23-26. Though ba­si­cally equalling his per­for­mances in the ear­lier AUS meet in the 100 and 200 freestyle events, Peters set a new Mount Al­li­son Univer­sity record in the 50 Free.

In mid Fe­bru­ary Peters also qual­i­fied for Olympic tri­als in the 200 and 400 me­tre free races. With per­mis­sion from the na­tional coach, he is now train­ing for an Olympic trial event in Can­cun, Mex­ico, on April 24. He hopes to en­ter the 10,000 me­tre Open Water event and qual­ify for the up­com­ing sum­mer Olympics.
