Cherry Bowl at Barclay Farms 2015
Haddontowne had a great Cherry Bowl.  We placed 12th overall as a team scoring 363 points.  We had some great time drops, and some outstanding performances.
Here are our swimmers that placed in the top 6:
Madison McNiff 100IM 5th
Michael Sommeling 100IM 3rd
Megan Franks 50FR 5th
Joshua Bartel 100BK 4th
Maddy Marsh 25FL 6th
Amanda Marsh 50FL 2nd
Jack Zeigler 50FL 2nd
The 9-10 Boy relay of Ryan C., Matt M., Thomas P., & Colin I. placed 6th in their Medley & 5th in their Free.
The 11-12 Girl relay of Megan F., Aubrey D., Madison M., & Amanda M. placed 2nd in both their Medley & Free relays.
We had TWO Cherry Bowl Champions.  Ryan Cortes won the 25 Fly & Aubrey Demurjian won the 50 Back.  Congratulations to all of our swimmers and their performances at such a great meet.  We were so proud as a coaching staff to see all of our swimmers do so well at Cherry Bowl 2015.
Week 5 versus Charleston
Tiger Sharks Win!  Our swimmers had a long road to get here, but their hard work paid off and it was rewarded with this win.  We had best times, time drops, and amazing swims all season.  This is where it paid off, by repeating it one last time, against a tough team that we matched up well against.  This time in our favor.  We didn't have any new qualifiers for Tri-county Championship, but we had a lot more stand out performances.  We had nine double winners, seven first place finishers, eleven winning relays, and thirty-one swimmers placed scoring points for our team.

It was an exciting meet, we know one coach wishes he could have been at... something about having to be somewhere.  The day was made that much more special with the texts & updates he received about how well we were doing (especially since that coach predicted the score to the point).  The coaching staff is so proud of how we performed, throughout the season, and we are so happy our Tiger Sharks were rewarded for it at the end of our regular season.  
Week 4 versus Barclay Farms
We had a tough meet against a tough team.  Still, even against a really tough opponent, we had best times and stand out performances by many of our swimmers.  We had two new tri-county qualifiers, five double winners, eight first place finishers, six winning relays, and twenty-seven swimmers place scoring points for the team.

It was not an easy meet, with many points going the other way.  Our last meet is coming up, and we match up very well against Charlestown.  Our season is close to the end, and I know if we swim like the way we did in the past four 'A' meets, we will be rewarded.
Week 3 versus Georgetown
We had a very close and exciting meet on July 1st!  Only 21 points separated us from winning our 1st meet of season.  It was a great way to start off the 4th of July weekend, with our meet being before the weekend, and it being so much fun.  We had 3 new Tri-county qualifiers, 6 double winners, 10 first place finishers, 10 winning relays, and 26 swimmers placed to score points for the team.

We did an unbelievable job against a team, that we matched up well against.  Winning 10 relays is no small feat, along with all the swimmers who put up points at this meet.  We keep getting best times, even on a short week.  The coaching staff knows that the way we have been swimming and how we performed at this meet will guarantee us a victory down the road.
Week 2 versus Cherry Valley
We had a great follow up meet to our close one from week 1.  Cherry Valley swam well, but he had a lot of best times, and a lot of highlights from this meet.  We had 4 new Tri-County Qualifiers, 7 double winners, 5 1st place finishers, 6 winning relays, & 21 swimmers that placed 2nd or 3rd scoring points for our team.  It was a tough meet but we did awesome.  The coaching staff is very proud of the swims at this meet.
A special congrats to Ryan Cortes for breaking TWO team records at Cherry Valley.  He swam the time of 17.20seconds in the 25 Back besting his previous record of 18.19.  He then swam the time of 15.18seconds in the 25 Fly breaking the 2011 record set by Justin Anderson of 16.36.

We did so well, against a tough team.  We have a great meet & match up versus Georgetown.  We should be excited about the possibilities of how we will compete against them, even in defeat, the coaching staff feels it will all pay off by the end of the season.  Win or lose, we get our victory by being a team!

Week 1 vs Whitman Square

We had an unbelievable meet versus Whitman Square.  Such a close meet, with great swims by so many of our swimmers.  We had 4 Tri-county qualifiers, 9 double winners, 7 1st place finishers, 7 winning relays, & 25 swimmers that placed 2nd &/or 3rd scoring points for the team.  It was such a fun, great 1st meet, and we, as a coaching staff, are looking forward to our next one!
