Win 125-53

Saturday brought another intense competition to the Generaux Aquatic Center with a meet against St. Mark’s School. Though the boys won handily, St. Mark’s brought some speed that pushed our boys to swim many best times to get their hands on the wall first. The girls’ meet was a close and intense competition that came down to the very last event. Each swimmer contributed significantly to the effort, and I could write about each one individually, but three incredible performances towards the end of the meet really stand out:

The quality of leadership, the poise, the heart, and the competitiveness that our girls showed on Saturday, coupled with the support, and the energy from our boys resulted in the most exciting meet of the year so far. The final scores were SAS 125 - 53 STM for the boys, SAS 82 - 80 STM for the girls, and SAS 207 - 133 STM overall.

We gear up to race against conference opponent Wilmington Friends School on Tuesday. The focus will be swimming new events and trying for state cuts.
