As 2009 has drawn to a close and 2010 begins with more snow, the swimmers from the Greenwood Memorial Swim Club have many achievements of which to be proud of. Among the most notable items are the number of team and New England swimming records which were broken in 2009. Some of the records which were broken had been held for more than 20 years, therefore it is quite an accomplishment to see them broken. The Greenwood Memorial Swim Club swimmers’ dedication to their sport was also demonstrated in other achievements which the team, the swimmers and their parents can all be very proud of.
A list of the new record holders is proudly displayed on the record board at the Greenwood Memorial Pool in Gardner. The list for new 2009 records is as follows:
Girls 8 and Under
Kasja Dymek* – 25Y Backstroke, 50Y Backstroke and 100Y Backstroke (new team records)
*New England Swimming Top Ten – Short Course Yards; New England Swimming Top Ten – Long Course Meters; New England Swimming Outstanding Swimmer – Long Course Meters
