At the 2019 Canadian Swimming Championships in Winnipeg, Bennett set an Americas record in the 200-m freestyle S14, as well as two more Canadian marks in the 100-m freestyle S14 and the 200-m individual medley SM14.
At the 2019 Canadian Swimming Trials in Toronto, Bennett racked up five multi-class medals (tying him for most among Para-swimming team members), including gold in the 200-m freestyle, silver in the 100-m butterfly, 100-m breaststroke and 200-m individual medley, as well as bronze in the 100-m backstroke. He set personal best times in the 100-m freestyle, 200-m individual medley, 100-m backstroke and 200-m freestyle, with the latter recognized as the best swim of the Trials by a male Para-swimmer (based on point charts).
At the 2018 Canadian Swimming Trials in Edmonton, Bennett won four medals and lowered national marks in the 50-m freestyle S14, 100-m free S14 and 50-m breaststroke SB14. The competition was to determine the Canadian team for the Para Pan Pacific Championships, but at 14, Bennett was too young to be on the roster.
