2019 Ken Dunn Nova Scotia Provincial Championships Highlights

Swim Nova Scotia is pleased to announce the results from this weekend’s 2019 Ken Dunn Nova Scotia Provincial Swimming Championships in Halifax, Nova Scotia.  Swim Scotia co-hosted the event with the Dartmouth Crusaders Swim Club at Dalplex Pool. Approximately 350 swimmers from Atlantic Canada and Ontario were in attendance.

Swim Nova Scotia would like to extend a big thanks to our co-hosting club, the Dartmouth Crusaders Swim Club, led by Maureen Nolan, and The Curly Girls!  Thanks to all parents/volunteers who took the time to officiate and volunteer throughout the weekend; without everyone’s continued support we would not be able to host successful events! Special thanks to Kelley Polley, who led our Officials team- thank you, Kelley!
