MONTREAL – Marija Vujovic of Aurora, Ont., and Danielle Hetherington of Richmond Hill, Ont., posted three podium finishes apiece as the McGill Martlets finished third at the second Quebec Cup swim meet of the season, held in Quebec City, Saturday.

Laval dominated the women’s division with 177 points, followed by Montreal (95), McGill (37), Sherbrooke (14) and UQTR (0).

Vujovic, a 17-year-old science freshman, combined with leadoff sprinter Hetherington to finish second in the 4x100 freestyle relay, which was clocked at four minutes, 12.58 seconds. Other members of the relay included freshman Jiyoon Oh of Langley, B.C., and junior Kyla Ashbury of Toronto.

Vujovic also combined with Oh and Caitlin Berry and Kristyna Cleminson to finish second in the 4x100 free (4:32.55) and placed third in the 800m freestyle (1:15.10).

Hetherington, a 21-year-old senior in her second year as team captain, swam leadoff on the 4x100 free. She also placed third in both the 50-and-200-metre freestyles, posting times of 28.08 seconds and 2:11.32, respectively.
Rounding out the Martlet medal count was Leanne Roach, a freshman from Riverview, N.B., who was third in the 100m breaststroke (1:15.20).
