We are very proud of all of our swimmers after a very fast and competitive Putnam County Championship. Our women’s team was strong all day long, and that strength was led by senior Grace Gillen who won two individual events, the 50 and 100 free, and anchored two winning relays. The relay sweep by our women was a very nice cap to the day. I am also very pleased with the swims by freshman Zoe Weltz who swam away with the 100 fly win, and also very happy that Abby Meyer was able to achieve victory in the 100 back. All of our swimmers have worked hard this fall, and the hard work paid off.
Our men’s team swam very, very well throughout the meet, but we fell just shy of the team win. Coach Anna Kendall has done wonderful work with the Eagle’s team, and their men were extraordinary from start to finish. I hope the fans were aware of what a phenomenal show of swimming they were able to witness. Seniors Preston Headley, who won the 100 breast, and Jackson Kendall, who won diving, led the charge for our Sharks.
