This past weekend CAC competed at the Connecticut Senior Championships at the Cheshire Community Pool. We had some really great races with significant time drops and many lifetime bests. We had seven swimmers compete. The men placed 9th overall among the 20 men’s teams that competed. We would like to recognize each swimmer and their accomplishments:



Drew Jalbert: 13th (50 Free), 10th (100 Free), 2nd (100 Fly), 1st (200 Fly)

** Congratulations to Drew for qualifying for the Summer Speedo Championship meet (Junior Nationals)

Alessandra D’Arcy: Best times in the 100 Back and Fly, it was also Alessandra’s last swim meet as she will be playing Water Polo at Brown University in the fall!! She had a great time and is looking forward to her new sport.


CAC has seen great improvement in the past couple of months since being back in the pool more regularly with COVID settling down. We are looking forward to finishing up the LC season with a couple of more meets and then taking a short break before really getting to work in the fall. Keep an eye out for results from the WHAT meet this upcoming weekend as well as Drew Jalbert’s performance at Junior Nationals!
