Wavecutters a success at the Nova Scotia Team Championships

Halifax Wavecutters Swimming Team produces outstanding performances at the Nova Scotia Team Championships.


The competition was held over three days starting November 30th through to December 2nd at Dalplex Swimming Pool. The meet had full prelim and final sessions and all of the Wavecutters that participated had some great results in the pool. There were a number of personal best times and final swims that earned the praise from their head coach, Nickolay Shulga.


The team that participated in the tournament included Devon Slongo, Devin Macdonald, Dmitry Shulga, Juliana Pouliot, Annie Wang, and Netali Bar. All of these swimmers had personal bests in at least one event and some in all of the events that they swam which is a testament to their preparation ahead of the long season.


On the medal count, Dmitry Shulga swept the swimming competition by winning gold in all six of his events, 200 Individual Medley, 100 Free, 100 Back, 50 Free, 200 Back, and 100 Fly. In doing so he picked up the overall Top Male award for the meet. Devon Slongo was the other medallist at the meet for the Wavecutters with a bronze medal in the 400 Freestyle, which was a very big best time and a great break through swim.


All of these great swims have set up the team well for the remainder of the season. The team is excited and ready to perform with confidence in future championship meets.
