Wheatley resident Maddy Lavoie continues to shine in the pool. The grade 9 student at LDSS recently competed at the prestigious Victor Davis Memorial Meet, in Guelph, Ontario.

The meet is held annually to honour legendary Olympic swimmer Victor Davis who was tragically killed in an auto accident, in 1989.

Lavoie competed in the 50m, 100m and 200m backstroke, 50m and 200m breaststroke, 200m and 400m individual medley and the relay.

Her results were golden. Maddy swam to gold medals in every event. She also posted the fastest times in the meet, for the women, regardless of age, in all but 2 events.

In the process, Maddy swam qualifying times for Ontario Provincial Championships, Eastern Canadian Championships, and Canadian Jr. National Championships.

And as a final note, the local swimmer set the all time Windsor Essex Swim Team record for 14-year and under swimmers in the 200m backstroke as well as the 400m individual medley.

Next up for Lavoie is the Amanda Reason Invitational being held in Windsor the first weekend in May. This will be a final tune up for Lavoie’s international competition in the Netherlands in June at the International Children’s Games.
