Snow, Ice, and Amazing Times Pile Up at Holiday Classic

Swimmers from 54 teams from across New Jersey and as far away as Connecticut, Long Island, Massachusetts, and upstate New York converged on Rutgers University in Piscataway, NJ for the 27th Annual Holiday Classic, hosted by Eastern Express.

Winter Storm Electra couldn’t keep our Swordfish from making a splash as our 9 competitors (of our 15 qualifying swimmers) represented our team well, while turning a few heads in the process! Competing against many teams with 30+ swimmers, our 6 girls and 3 boys earned 112 points, placing 29th in the combined team division, and 20th in the girls division. 30 Career Best Times were swum; even our elite swimmers continue to Improve!

An incredible 22 JO Times were swum by Abbey Gardner (200 Free, 100 Fly, 100 IM, 100 Free, 50 Fly); Emily Haudek (100 Fly, 100 Free, 100 Back, 200 Fly); Catie Lovett (100 Back); Jake Riva (500 Free); and Sam Russell (50 Breast, 100 Fly, 100 IM, 100 Free, 100 Back, 200 Breast, 100 Breast, 50 Free, 50 Back).

36 YMCA States times were earned by Nicole Donnelly (100 Free, 200 Free); Will Englehardt (50 Free, 50 Back, 50 Fly); Abbey Gardner (200 Free, 100 Fly, 100 IM, 100 Free, 50 Fly); Emily Haudek (100 Fly, 100 Free, 100 Back, 200 Fly); Tommy Kane (50 Back, 100 IM, 50 Fly); Catie Lovett (50 Free, 50 Back, 100 Back); Jake Riva (500 Free, 100 Back, 50 Fly, 200 Free, 50 Back); and Sam Russell (50 Breast, 100 Fly, 100 IM, 100 Free, 100 Back, 200 Breast, 100 Breast, 50 Free, 50 Back).

A special congrats to Emily Haudek who earned two YMCA Nationals times in both the 100 & 200 Fly. She will be returning to the Greensboro Aquatic Center in Greensboro, North Carolina in April. We are very proud of her!

Great job to all of our swimmers!!!
