Captains' Corner

Captain Abby Federici

My name is Abby Federici and I am a senior at Wakefield Memorial High School. I have been a Melrose swim team member for the past 7 years. These have been some of the best years of my life. The coaches are the best and I have made many friends from this team. My favorite events are the 50 meter freestyle and the 100 meter freestyle. In my spare time, I love to travel with my family, I love art, I lifeguard and teach swim lessons, and I love to listen to music. I cannot wait to be one of the captains for this team. 


Captain Devin McDaid

Hello, I am Devin McDaid, and I am one of the captains of the Metro North Tritons. I am a senior at Melrose High School. I am also the captain of the Melrose High swim team. I have been swimming for most of my life, but if I had to put a number on it I would say 13 years of swimming. I have been on this Y team for my whole life. I have swam along both my brother and my sister on the team. When I’m not swimming, I am hanging out with friends or at school helping with something in the TV studio that we have at Melrose High. I am looking forward to this new swim season as being a leader that the kids can look up to and to set a good example for the younger kids on the team to see what a leader really is.



Captain Jacob Lang

My name is Jacob Lang and I am a senior at Lynn Classical High School. I have been a captain on the Classical swim team for the last three years. I started swimming competitively when I was 11 years old. My favorite events are the 500 freestyle and the 200 IM. I work as both a swim instructor and a lifeguard at the Torigian YMCA. Over the past 3 years I have volunteered my time swimming with special needs children.  Outside of swim, I enjoy running , reading and listening to music. In my many years of swimming I’ve made tons of great friends and I am very excited to be one of the captains of this team.
