Congratulations to Taylor Olanski and Dylan Grissel On winning the Beverly Boys Outstanding Award at Summer Seniors.
The Summer Sr. Nationals were hosted by Rouge et Or in Quebec City. They Summer Seniors served as the selection trials for the FINA World Championships to be held in Barcelona, Spain in July and the World University Games to be held in Kazan, Russia in August – so all of the best divers in Canada were competing including Olympians Francois Imbeau-Dulac, Riley McCormick, Jennifer Abel, Meghan Benfeito and Roseline Filion . Dylan Grisell, CJ Moore, Brett Gillis, Taylor Olanski and Molly Carlson were the Ontario divers competing.
After all events were completed, Dylan had the highest combined score for boys – and although the placings don’t matter for purposes of the award – he finished 6th on 1M, 11th on 3M and 5th on Tower. Taylor had the highest combined score of all of the girls on 1M (13th), 3M (6th) & Tower (5th).
