Another great showing by our swimmers at the NJ Swimming 13& Over Silver/Bronze Championships over the weekend. Our 12 attending swimmers wrapped up their seasons with some best times and top places.
There were 12 Career Best Times earned by Ethan Cross (100 Back, 100 Breast); Vincent Dellechiaie (100 Free, 200 Free); Nicole Donnelly (200 IM); Nicholas Kiss (100 Fly, 100 Free, 50 Free); Sean Sharma (50 Free); Christopher Smith (100 Back, 50 Free); and Hannah Soutter (50 Free). Nicholas’ times were off the chart- he dropped 12.50 in his 100 Fly, 9.46 in his 100 Free, and 6.10 in his 50 Free for over 28 seconds of improvement in his 3 events! Of our 41 splashes, 16 were Silver times.
Our Swordfish also finished in some top 10 spots, with Vincent Dellechiaie earning 6th in his 100 Free and a 3rd in his 200 Fly; Nicole Donnelly taking an 8th in her 200 Free; Sean Sharma swimming to 10th in his 50 Free; Chris Smith turning it on with a 3rd in his 100 Back and 4th in 200 Back; Hannah Soutter finishing 9th in her 100 Fly; and Lauren Yuen grabbing a 5th Place in her 200 Breast.
Thanks and congratulations to all of our attending swimmers!
