Boys High School Sectional/States Recap

Congratulations to the Empire swimmers on a fantastic High School Section1 Champships! We had a great showing from our swimmers. 18 of our boys swam fast enough on Tuesdays prelims to qualify for the finals on Thursday. In finals there were many highlights including Empire placing 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in the 100 Backstroke. An empire swimmer won 7 out of the 11 events as well as claiming 18 of the total 33 top 3 spots in the meet. Almost all of the Empire swimmers in Sectional finals qualified to go on and compete at the New York State Championships. Great job to all of you!
