Jessica Allen, Katie Callon and David Hickey represented LAC at the Junior Championships from July 26-30, with Hickey leading the way with three top 10 finishes. Meanwhile, in Montreal from Aug. 4-7, Maggie MacNeil raced to a silver medal in her 100 metre butterfly specialty, while teammates David Armstrong and Devin Gotell also competed at the event.
