Congrats to our swimmers who competed at the Go for the Gold meet at Raritan Valley Community College this past weekend. Hosted by the Bergen Barracudas, there were a few hundred swimmers from eight teams in attendance over the course of the two-day meet.
Whether swimming new events, in new age-groups, or capturing personal best times, our swimmers had a great weekend. Of our 120+ splashes over the weekend, more than half finished faster than their seed times and there were a number of top-finishes as well!
A special shout-out to our First Place earners Matt Freund (100 Fly, 200 Free); Jonathan Kern (50 Back); and Hannah Wilson (100 Free). Other Top 6 finishes were earned by Reese Berg (2nd in the 50 Breast); Zach Bezold (4th in the 100 Breast, 2nd in the 200 Breast, and 6th in the 200 Free); Kayla Bhagaloo (5th in the 200 Back); Matt Freund (4th in the 50 Free); Ty Hollar (5th in the 100 Back); Marcus Innamorato (5th in the 100 Back); Jonathan Kern (2nd in the 100 Back, 100 Free, 100 IM, 50 Fly; 3rd in the 50 Breast, 50 Free; 4th in the 100 Breast); Nathaniel Kern (2nd in the 200 IM, 50 Fly, 50 Free; 3rd in the 100 Back, 100 Fly, 200 Free; 4th in the 100 IM; 5th in the 100 Free); Erin Magnotta (4th in the 200 Back); Erin McLean (6th in the 200 Back); Jillian Weinberger (5th in the 200 Back); and Hannah Wilson (2nd in the 200 Back, 200 Free; 3rd in the 100 Back; 4th in the 50 Free, 400 IM, 500 Free; 5th in the 200 IM).
