Our swimmers had another stellar showing at this season’s 13&Over Silver Bronze Championships at the Berkeley Aquatic Center in New Providence over the weekend. Our 19 attending swimmers earned personal best times, top places, and even a few new Gold times!
Of our 72 splashes, an incredible 39 were Career Best Times. There were 26 Silver times swum, and new Gold times by Zach Bezold (200 Free), Hannah Calderon (200 Back), and Billy Ruddy (200 Free). Despite dropping times all season, the swimmers continue to pull out significant time drops like Jillian Berg’s 400 IM (-5.19), Kayla Bhagaloo’s 100 Breast (-6.09), Andrew Carlson’s 200 Back (-5.00), Caty Jhong’s 200 Back (-5.31), Erin McLean’s 200 Breast (-5.67), and Hannah Soutter’s 400 IM (-5.84) just to name a few.
The Barracudas made their presence known with Second Place finishes by Hannah Calderon (200 Back), Billy Ruddy (200 Free), and Firsts by Jillian Berg (400 IM), Hannah Calderon (100 Fly), and Andrew Carlson (100 Fly)!
Congratulations to all of our swimmers finishing up the season, and good luck to those moving on to Senior Opens, JOs, Sectionals, and beyond…
