The battle for the final spot on the Women’s Canada Games Team was hard fought last weekend at the Toon Town Westerns in Saskatoon – and Joelle Gallais not only won a spot on the team but broke the record set in 2006 by Lindsay Hamilton. Check here to see the current Sask records waiting to be broken.

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!
