Concord Sailfish season wrap up.
As the 2018-2019 short course season comes to a close, the
Sailfish had an excellent year in the pool! 12 team records fell during the
course of the season, one of which had stood for 49 years! Many records dating
back to the mid 1980s also came down. Most of the records were older than the
swimmers that broke them!
The following team records were broken during the season:
SARAH GUERRETTE 13-14 50 FREE & 100 FREE
LOGAN WINERITER 15 -19 200 BREASTSTROKE
EMMA HALL: 13-14 100 BREASTSTROKE & 200 BREASTSTROKE
ANTHONY HUANG: 13-14 100 FREE & 13-14 200 FREE
SYDNEY STOCKWELL: 15-18 100 BACKSTROKE & 200 BACKSTROKE
CAILEY STOCKWELL: 13-14 400 IM , 200 FREE & 500 FREE
Emma Hall again qualified for the prestigious Sectionals meet at
Ithaca College, where the top swimmers from all over the east coast gather to
swim against each other. Emma also set two meet records during the course of
season, meaning no one at those meets had ever swum as fast a time as she did.
She set one record at the Connecticut Valley invitational meet in January and
one just recently at the State championship near the end of March. That state
record had stood for 35 years!
Emma wasn’t the only one breaking old records, Anthony’s record in the 100 freestyle broke one that had stood for 49 years before he broke it this year! Congrats to both of them for great swims!
In addition to qualifying for the Sectionals meet, Emma was once again ranked in the top 10 in New England in her breaststroke events, being 2nd in the 100 breast and 7th in the 200 breast. This is the 4th straight year she has been in the top 10. Congrats to Emma!
In addition to all of the new records, the Sailfish placed 6th overall at the state championship meet out of 14 teams, and had their biggest group of qualifiers at the USA swimming championship meets (Regionals, Silvers & Age Groups) and also had the largest team ever attending the state champs meet. All in all, it was a strong year in the pool for the Sailfish, so congratulations to all of the Sailfish for a great season!
