NJB Swimmers Help Their Schools at Sussex County Championships

The Sussex County Championships at Kittatinny Regional High School on February 2nd pitted about 150 swimmers from 8 area teams against one another in a meet of fast swimming. The meet was observed by USA Swimming, so all registered swimmers’ times counted.

In attendance were about 20 NJB swimmers lending a hand to their respective high school teams. Along the way they accounted for nearly 1/3 of all points earned in the meet and saw 16 of our swimmers stood on the podium for their top-3 finishes; 6 of these were First Places by Jordan Maruska (500 Free); Jake Riva (50 & 100 Free); Billy Ruddy (500 Free); and Sam Russell (200 IM, 100 Breast).

There were also 21 Career Best Times earned, including 8 new Gold Times by Zach Bezold (100 Breast, 500 Free);  Haley Britt (100 Breast); Hannah Calderon (100 Back); Jordan Maruska (500 Free); Michael Rizzo (500 Free); and Sean Sharma (100 Fly, 100 Breast).

Great Job to all!
