Dmitriy Lim, UBC, 2:01.16 Kylie Masse earned national swimmer of the year honours for the fourth straight season as the 2019 Odlum Brown U SPORTS swimming championships wrapped up on Saturday night (Feb. 23) in Vancouver.TEAM STANDINGS: The Blues women earn their second straight national silver medal, finishing with 1230.5 points, just 25 points behind the host UBC Thunderbirds (1255.5). The Montreal Carabins placed third with 701 points.”Our women were a distant second last year by nearly 400 points,” said Varsity Blues head coach Byron MacDonald. “To make almost all of that up in one year is incredible. What a finish. After three days and after 17 of the 19 events and the score was only three points apart. It can’t get more exciting than that.”Toronto’s men claimed the overall bronze medal with 682 points, behind the UBC Thunderbirds (1075) and Calgary Dinos (925.5).  “The men’s team deserve some serious accolades,” added MacDonald. “The turnover in the team from last year was the biggest wholesale change I have ever experienced in my 41 years at U of T. We lost 10 of our 18 members from last year’s OUA championship team. The fact that we could still make our way to the national podium was impressive.”WOMEN’S RESULTS: Masse garnered female swimmer of the year honours after finishing the meet with three individual and three relay gold medals.”I’m so proud of these girls,” said Masse. “To have been a part of this team for five years is something really special. This award is quite an honour because there were a lot of very fast swims this weekend.”In her final individual race as a Varsity Blue, Masse earned her third grand slam award in as many days, winning her fourth career 200 backstroke gold medal in a U SPORTS long course record of 2:08.70. That completed the backstroke sweep for the kinesiology major for the fourth straight year.The LaSalle, Ont., native capped off her U of T career by teaming up with rookies Aleksa Gold, Ainsley McMurray and Rebecca Smith to win the 400 freestyle relay in a U SPORTS record time of 3:43.90.”Being a part of a team is so special,” added Masse. “You learn a lot about yourself and there is a lot of personal growth both in and out of the pool. To share that with your teammates and watch each other grow and continue to improve is awesome. Not everyone gets a chance to be a part of a team so to be able to have that honour and to represent your school is something that everyone should be really proud of.””It was sad to see Kylie swim her last race for U of T as she has been such a role model and inspiration for her teammates and I would argue all sports folks,” said MacDonald. “It has been a privilege to coach her as I have mentioned before. She will remain on campus for her Olympic prep so even though her varsity eligibility is gone, she will still provide inspiration and leadership to the Blues.”Smith earned U SPORTS female rookie of the year laurels after amassing three individual and three relay gold medals as well. Smith capped off her first national championships by claiming her third individual gold medal in three days. The Red Deer, Alta., native touched the wall first in the 100 freestyle in 55.45 seconds.Rounding out Toronto’s podium finishes on Day 3 was Hannah Genich, who claimed the 200 butterfly silver medal in 2:13.77. Georgia Kidd was fourth in 2:15.81.Gold placed fourth in the 100 freestyle, while she, Sarah Polley and Genich finished 4-5-6 in the 200 backstroke. Sophia Saroukian also placed seventh in the 800 freestyle in 9:02.94.MacDonald and Linda Kiefer were named co-coaches of the year, alongside UBC’s Steve Price. MEN’S RESULTS: Mitch Ferraro ended his five-year career at U of T with a bronze-medal finish in the 100 freestyle, touching the wall in 50.94 seconds. He then teamed up with Bjoern-Ole Schrader, Matt Dans and Ethan Fazekas to place third in the 400 freestyle relay in 3:26.75.”Mitch has had a marvelous career at U of T,” said MacDonald. “We could always count on him for his swim performances and his leadership.”Osvald Nitski placed fifth in the 200 butterfly in 2:03.59, while Matthew Mac was sixth in the 200 backstroke in 2:05.02.INDIVIDUAL HONOURS Men 200m Free1.
