Wonderful Winterfest!!

 Wonderful Winterfest!

 

Thirty four Hurricanes travelled to the University of Maryland to compete in the 2019 SPY Winterfest Meet.  It is an accomplishment to qualify for the meet and even more of an accomplishment to be able to swim best times in a large venue like this one after an 8 hour journey there.  Our swimmers rose to the occassion with multiple best times and several who made top 16 in a very fast meet!

A special congratulations to Sophia Swanson, Ethan McCormac and Jane Brierley!

For the first time, Sophiamade a YMCA National cut in the 100 fly!  In doing so, she also set a new team record of 58.50 (old record of 59.85 by Carly Drew) in 15-18 100 fly.

Ethan had already qualified for YMCA Nationals in the 50, 100 and 200 free, but his new best times set new team records in all three events in the 15-18 year old age group.  He broke his own records in the 50 free (old record: 21.86) with a 21.23 and in the 100 free (old record: 47.73) with a 46.89.  His 200 free time of 1:43.55 broke the previous longstanding record of Trevor Mott (1:43.78).

Janebroke her own record in the 13-14 200 breast with a time of 2:25.33 (old record 2:25.52)
