A nice showing with 67 of our swimmers coming out for an early-season meet, and just the second ever Tri-Meet against our sister branches of the Metropolitan YMCA of the Oranges. With less than three weeks of training, our swimmers earned 47 Career Best Times, and they looked great!

23 First Places were earned by Kai Batchelor (25 breast, 25 fly); Mitchell Bove (100 Breast); Nicole Donnelly (100 Fly); Abbey Gardner (50 Back); Brooke Gardner (100 Back); Chris Gutierrez (25 Free); JJ Kane (50 Back, 50 Fly); Thomas Kane (50 Back, 50 Fly); Michael Pacholarz (200 IM); Abby Panzarella (50 Free); Grace Panzarella (50 Breast); Jacob Panzarella (50 Free); Jake Riva (100 Back, 100 Free); Emily Rothamel (100 Back, 100 Free); Clare Schwartz (50 Back); Margaret Wilk (50 Fly); Lauren Yuen (100 Breast); and Aiden Zachowski (25 back).

Congrats to Jake Riva on setting a new Team Record in the 13-14 100 Back with a new time of 1:00.68!
