Calgary Dinos swimmer Alexanne Lepage just keeps winning.

The local product of the Vernon Kokanee Swim Club claimed four gold medals at the Toronto/Ottawa Tri Meet over the Jan. 26-28 weekend, where the Dinos, University of Toronto and University of Ottawa all competed against one another.

Lepage won gold in the 200 and 100 metre breaststroke, 200m Individual Medley and the 200m Medley Relay team with Hannah Johnsen, Julianne Moore and Sarah Corson.

Lepage, in just her first year as a university swimmer, now has claimed a whopping 20 medals, 19 of them gold, in just four swim meets.

The Dinos won the Canada West championships for the 20th time in November, as Lepage claimed seven medals during that meet.

She was named the Canada West Female Swimmer of the Year and the conference women’s rookie of the year. This week, she picked up the U Sports Swimmer of the Week honour for her exploits at the Tri Meet.

It is the first time both awards have gone to the same person in conference history. Next up, the Dinos host the Colleges Cup on Feb. 2-3 with the U Sports Championships slated for March 7-9 in Montreal.
