"Our swimmers had a fantastic weekend of swimming," said Tritons head coach Chris Stone.
Leading the way on the women's side were sisters Kristen and Rebecca MacPherson, who were also joined by their elder sister Ceilidh, who is now swimming at Dalhousie University with Triton alum Mary Claire Lynch.

"We'll be taking a quick rest for the Holidays, and then back in the water to get ready for 2012 shortly after Christmas," Stone went on to say.
The first meet of 2012 in Nova Scotia will be hosted by the Tritons along with the Acadia Axemen & Axewomen teams at the Acadia pool. The Acadia Senior & Junior meets will bring over 300 swimmers from across Atlantic Canada to the valley for three days of swimming at the Acadia pool over the January 13-15, 2012 weekend.
