Last week was a great week for three local Mercury swimmers from Livingston County as they captured New York State qualifying times.
On Thursday December 13th Geneseo's Alex Kruger swam a 53.81 in the 100 Butterfly qualifying for his fourth trip to the state meet.
On December 14th & 15th Perry's Sam Matthews qualified to return to the state meet for the second year in a row. On Friday Sam swam a 52.60 in the 100 Fly and on Saturday he qualified again in the 50 Free with a 22.00. In the process Sam broke two Perry school records.
Aidan Kreiley of Dansville had a big night Friday night. Swimming the 500 Free in 4:43.85 and 200 IM in 1:57.25 Aidan broke the Letchworth pool record in both events as well as qualifying for states in both. Aidan also has a state time in the 100 breaststroke. This will be his third trip to the big state meet. Last year as a sophomore Aidan finished 4th in the 100 breaststroke.
