Just as they did the previous two nights, Exeter Swim Team rocked the finals session at Champs!
Highlights from Finals:
Kyra dropped again in the 200bk with a 2:05... CJ also dropped again in the 200bk with a 204...
Izzy dropped to a 53.3 in the 100fr and Kyra finished in 53.9 after a quick turnaround from the 200bk... CJ finished in 17th in the 100fr also in a quick double...
Izzy dropped again in the 200IM to go 2:12... CJ, swimming his third final of the night, finished in 9th in the 200IM, while Patrick dropped again to go 2:12 and finished 18th!
Once again, EST relays took down records and scored points!
The 13-14 girls (Kyra, Katie, Izzy and Sophie) finished 12th in 4:16.0, breaking the team record by 14 seconds!
The 15-over girls (Jill, Brianna, Maggie and Morganne) went 4:17 breaking the previous team record by 9 seconds!
The 13-14 boys 400 medley relay (CJ, Patrick, Sam and Zach) who finished 4th in a time of 3:56 which breaks the old record by 15 seconds!
Exeter finished the meet in 12th place, scoring 488 points (bettering the combined total from 2003 to 2010)!
Izzy finished 6th and Kyra tied for 7th overall in the 13-14 girls high point competition, despite both only swimming 6 out of a possible 9 events!
A number of swimmers swam in time trials, and we had a TON of best times... A full report will follow with results.
I'm extremely proud of how the EST swimmers performed over the weekend. We worked extremely hard since September to be ready for this meet, and to see it all come together like that was amazing. Let's keep the momentum rolling into NHSA Champs and Sectionals!!!
