15-18 Age Group Wrap Up

John DeCaprio

At the recent 15-18 Age Group Championship meet we had 2 Sailfish swimmers qualify to swim. Lily Peterson and Thanida Thomas represented the Sailfish at this meet at WPI.

Lily swam 4 events and qualified for the finals (top 30) in her 100 & 200 breaststroke events, with a PR in her 200 breast. She was seeded 46th in the 2 breast and ended up 31st at the end of the finals round. She also improved her standing in the 100 breast, from 53rd to 30th after the finals. In addition, she swam to a PR in her 200 IM. Nice going Lily!!
Thanida swam 3 events at this meet and came home with a nice 4+ second drop in her 200 IM, making her the “biggest loser” at this meet! Way to go Thanida!

Congratulations to both girls for qualifying for this prestigious meet, which only about 20% of the swimmers in New England swimming do.
