Hilary Caldwell won the women’s 200-m backstroke, thus qualifying to represent Canada at the upcoming world championships in Barcelona, Spain.

Caldwell’s sister, Katie, also posted strong times, finishing fifth in the 200-m individual medley and second in an earlier CIS meet. The latter result qualifies her for a spot at 2013 World University Championships this summer in Kazan, Russia.

Also in Victoria, Olivvya Chow clocked a pair of personal-best times in the 100-m freestyle and 200-m IM to earn her a spot on Team BC, which will compete later this year at the Canada Games in Sherbrooke, Que.

Edwin Zhao rounded out the PSW contingent by swimming to a personal-best time in the 200-m butterfly – clocking a time that puts him second in the country for males 16 and under.
