Isabel Sarty of the Dalhousie Tigers/Halifax Trojan Aquatic Club was this year’s female recipient of the David Fry Memorial Bursary.

The Halifax native excelled in and out of the pool; she  stood out in her classes where the academic demands were very high; she graduated from Citadel High School last June, with French Immersion, and Honours with Distinction.

In the pool, she is a Dalhousie record holder and she holds three individual and three Nova Scotia Provincial records. Isabel has been a medalist at National level meets, and is a member of Swimming Canada’s Junior Team Program and of Swim Nova Scotia’s High Performance Team.

Isabel is enrolled in Dalhousie’s Faculty of Science, with a focus on neuroscience.

The David Fry Memorial Bursary has been established to remember David, his contributions to competitive swimming in Nova Scotia, and to encourage swimmers toward excellence.  David Fry left an invaluable legacy to amateur sport in Nova Scotia and in Canada, the legacy of his character; character built on commitment, intensity, discipline, effort, and desire.

Each year awards may be made from the Fund to promising, Nova Scotia swimmers to assist them to continue their training, education, and pursuit of their swimming goals as they pursue their University education.

Congratulations Izzy!
