Swimmers Scare The Competition at Halloween Meet

Yet another outstanding, early-season showing by our swimmers at the SHY Halloween Meet over the weekend. Our Swordfish speared 17 Y Silver and 12 Y State times; a JO time; and 8 First Places, just to name a few highlights. Even more impressive was the overall time improvements by our swimmers: our 76 attending swimmers earned 89 Career Best Times. Adding to that accomplishment is the sheer scope of improvement. In a sport where improvement is typically measured in hundredths of a second, our swimmers dropped over 367 seconds (6:07.68 to be exact) collectively.

Y Silver times were earned by Nicole Donnelly (500 Free, 100 Fly); Brooke Gardner (200 Free, 100 IM); Emily Haudek (100 Free, 100 Fly); Sam Lensak (100 Back); Abby Panzarella (50 Breast); Emily Rothamel (100 Back, 100 Fly); Sam Russell (200 Free); Abby Schwartz (100 Free); Henry Bysshe (100 Free); Erich Kraemer (100 Free, 100 Back); and Michael Pacholarz (200 Free, 100 Breast).

Y State times were swum by Nicole Donnelly (100 Free); Abbey Gardner (50 Free, 100 Free, 100 IM); Brooke Gardner (100 Back); Sam Russell (100 Breast, 200 IM); Henry Bysshe (50 Back); Michael Pacholarz (100 IM); and Jake Riva (100 Free, 500 Free, 100 Back).

And congratulations to Sam Russell on her JO time in the 200 IM.

And 5 of our swimmers touched out the competition for 8 First Places: Henry Bysshe (100 Free); Nicole Donnelly (100 Fly, 100 Free); Abbey Gardner (100 Free, 100 IM, 50 Free); Emily Haudek (500 Free); and Ian Traverse (25 Free).
