TWU swimming: Desjarlais fourth at Canada West championships

Two seconds are all that separated Christian Desjarlais from a medal at the Canada West swimming championships.

The first-year Trinity Western Spartans swimmer was fourth in the 400m freestyle over the weekend in Edmonton.

He was the lone Spartan to qualify for an ‘A’ final and after finishing seventh in the preliminaries, Desjarlais improved by more than three seconds, finishing the final in 4:03.03.

“All of our swimmers had second swims tonight, so that was good, and the whole meet was a good experience for our team,” said coach Brian Metcalfe.

“We had some good racing and now we have something to build upon for next year. We have lots of work to do but it was a good meet overall.”

The Spartans men’s and women’s teams both placed eighth, with 60 and 42 points, respectively.
