It was one of the most dominant rookie performances of all time at the OUA swimming championships for Kylie Masse.
The Varsity Blues first-year swimmer won a total of six gold medals and set five OUA records in the process, while helping Toronto bring home a second-consecutive OUA Championship banner.
Masse earned four individual gold medals – all in record time – sweeping the backstroke events (50m, 100m, 200m), and also winning the 200m individual medley with a time of 2:12.78 that broke the 20-year-old record of 2:12.86 held by three-time Olympian Joanne Malar. She also won two team gold medals in the 400m medley relay – Toronto set an OUA record in the event – and the 200m freestyle relay.
Masse also took home three major awards: OUA Women’s Swimmer of the Year, OUA Rookie of the Year, and the Dr. Jeno Teyani individual medley award.
