Due to a band competition occurring at the same time as the swim meet, only 8 of our 13 girls were able to compete in swimming today; however, they still managed to take 6th place out of 10 teams. Several girls swam season-best times, and several more were very close to their season’s bests.
Geordyn Webster won both her individual events of the 50 freestyle and the 100 backstroke (an event Geordyn hasn’t swam in over 2 years). Lexi Goodell placed 2nd in her 100 breaststroke and 6th in the 200 Individual Medley. Maren Redlinger was 9th in the 100 freestyle. And the relay team of Goodell, Redlinger, Arabella Shepard, and Mara Spalding came away with 5th place in the 200 freestyle relay.
It was a big, long meet (taking over 4 ours to complete), of the meet Ashley Hesson, swim coach said, “I’m happy with how the day went.”
The next meet is just 48 hours away in Williamsburg.
