Mount Allison names athletes of month
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.
