Devilfish Swim in January Blast Virtual Meet
After an on again/off again start to the season, the Westfield Area YMCA Devilfish swim team held a virtual meet against the Fanwood Scotch Plains YMCA (FSPY) over 3 days from January 29th - 31st at the Westfield Area YMCA. The meet, a combination of distance and regular events, was run in strict accordance with all state mandates for youth sports. While the team was not able to swim against FSPY in person, just knowing that they were competing against another team helped motivate the swimmers to swim their best. With a season beset by closures and meet cancellations, many best times and championship cuts were still achieved, including a YMCA Nationals cut for Lauren Lane in the 200 back with a time of 2:06.91. In addition, Clare Logan broke the Westfield Y 13/14 Girls 100 back record with a time of 57.75.
Thank you to all the coaches and parent volunteers for helping to make this meet a success. We look forward to more racing this season.
