Swimmers' Times Fall at the Autumn Challenge

Our SCY Swimmers had an incredible showing in Perth Amboy this past weekend, with unprecedented time drops, championship cuts, and top finishes.

The fruits of our athetes training yielded 100 Career Best Times out of our 167 swims. These amounted to a cumulative 359.85 seconds (just under 6 minutes!) of improvement. They just keep getting faster!

The Swordfish represented well, with 8 First Place finishes by Abbey Gardner (200 Back, 500 Free, 400 IM, 200 Free, 100 Back); Samantha Russell (50 & 100 Free); and Emily Haudek (100 Fly).

Ensuring a busy March, an awesome 18 YMCA State Times were earned by Abbey Gardner (50 Fly, 200 Free, 100 Back); Nicole Donnelly (50 Fly, 100 Free, 100 Fly, 200 Free); Samantha Russell (50 Free, 100 Butterfly, 200 Fly, 200 Back, 100 Free)Henry Bysshe (100 Back)Michael Pacholarz (100 Fly)Jake Riva (100 IM, 50 Free, 100 Back); and Brooke Gardner (100 Back).
