Those efforts helped the Marauders’ men claim silver at the OUA Swimming Championships and made him a logical choice for McMaster pita Pit Male Athlete of the week.

The fourth-year Marauder won individual gold in the 50m and 100m breast stroke events, breaking the conference record in the 50m event with a time of 27.88. Bald closed out the breast stroke events with a silver medal in the 200m, but excelled once more as part of the Marauders’ relay teams.

Alongside Eric Anderson, Mo Eldah and Matt Vogelzang, Bald won gold in the 200m medley relay, as the team set an OUA record time of 1:40.31. He rounded out his five-medal weekend with a bronze alongside Anderson, Marc Muise and Kurt Schubert in the 400m free relay.
