On Tuesday Canton dominated the Gouverneur Wild Cats in the pool. This home meet was particularly special, in that is was Canton’s Senior meet. Seniors, Bella Jaskowski, Sarah Bailey, Julia Domena, and Jayden Burcume were thanked for their contribution to the Caton Swim team. These swimmers will certainly be missed in the years to come. On Tuesday Canton took yet another victory, this time against Gouverneur, with a win of 113-55.
Seniors, Domena and Jaskowski have been impacting the swim team for a total of six years, and they demonstrated what they are capable of yet again against the wild cats.

This meet against Gouverneur was the Canton Lady Bear Swimmers’ final meet of the season. Because they were saying goodbye to the seniors, it was also a very sad one. However, the Bears are not finished in the pool just yet. Although they finished their regular season, the Bears will still compete at sectionals and have the chance to extend their winning streak to 104. Cheer on the Canton Swimmers as they compete against the other schools of the section at the Sectional Championships November 3rd at 1:00 pm in the SUNY Potsdam pool.
