New Saskatchewan Records

Our Group E divers are leading the way with 2 new Saskatchewan records set at the 2017 Saskatchewan Provincial Championships held in Regina from Feb 11-12.  In fact one record was broken twice!  Alexander Potts broke the Boys E Platform record which he himself had set in 2016.  Both Finlee Sharp and Lila Stewart broke the Girls E 1m record which had been held by Erika Markentin since 2014. Ultimately Lila came out on top with the Gold medal and the new record.  Congratulations!
