Now only did the Grade 10 student get to compete on the national stage for the first time, he was reunited with a number of athletes he met a year earlier at the B.C. Winter Games and created new friendships with competitors from outside the province.

Dennison trains regularly at the White Rock Academy which is based out of the Grandview Aquatic Centre in South Surrey.
