This past weekend EST sent a group of 24 swimmers to Beverly YMCA for a one day distance meet. Many of the swimmers were competing for the first time in a distance event and did an excellent job with the 400,800 and 1500 meter swims.
Our biggest time drop of that day went to Katie Arend, who cut over two minutes from her previous 1500 time. There were also big drops from Alex Bouvier (52 seconds in his 400 IM), Meg Gray (70 seconds in her mile), Becca Stevens (29 seconds in her 400 FR) and Hannah Deschenes (27 seconds in her mile)
In overall placing, Zach Bishop was second in the men’s mile and Kayla Metivier led the EST women with her 9th place finish in the women’s mile. In the men’s 400 free Sean Brown lead the way for EST with an 8th place finish and Shane Harvey was right behind in 9th. Griffin Deschenes was the fastest 12 & under boy in the 400 free, placing 14th overall in the open event.
Our next meet will be the CT senior invite from June 13-15 (for qualified senior only) followed by our 12 & under meet at PEA on June 22.
