Thunderbirds National Champs (again)

UBC Thunderbirds Men’s swimming captures 6th consecutive U SPORTS National Title, Women claim silver

The UBC Thunderbirds captured their sixth-straight U SPORTS championship title on the men’s side while the Toronto Varsity Blues successfully defended their title on the women’s side to capture the team titles at the 2023 U SPORTS Swimming Championships, Feb. 25, at Saanich Commonwealth Place.

The Thunderbirds swimming program leaves Victoria with more hardware for their trophy case while adding to their all-time records of national titles – with the women currently at 24 total championships, and with this year’s title win the men have captured a Canada-best 20 banners in the storied history of the blue and gold. Keeping up the standard of excellence hasn’t been easy with plenty of turnover year over year but the lofty expectations are what fuels Schoof and the student-athletes every day.
