We had a great weekend of swimming and parent volunteerism!

champs-715186Not only did our swimmers swim well but our parents were on fire! We had the best turn out of parents working at our meets! Our Girls Champs ran very smooth and we even had one very old team record fall. Our 9-10 Girls broke a 27 year old medley relay record by almost 3 seconds! Emily Carbral, Emily Wolbert, Maggie Palaski and Alexis Kemp swam a record shattering 2:22.36 in the 200 medley relay, the old record was from 1981 (2:25.05) old record was held by K. Livingood, L. Parker, M. Doney, P. Christian (these swimmers are older than Coach Mike) The lady Piranhas also placed first breaking the record. There were many, many great swims including first place finishes from Emily Wolbert in the 100 IM and in the 100 free. We also picked up additional district qualifying times from Katherine Lutfy in the 50 breast, Irene Gendelmen in the 50 back (lead off in relay) and Lena Yang in the 100 free.

In the Boys champs there were also additional District times from Adrian Bernard in the 50 free and the 100 back and Sam Velez qualified in the 50 Free for Districts. Zack Wolbert won the 25 fly, the 50 free (District Qualifying time for 10 & Under) and he tied the 25 breast.

PFY Girls win the League!!!!

great-job-703400
The girls team has officially won the Over-All Penn Del League title! The lady Piranha’s swam away with the Over-All League title (4-1 record), 8 & Under League title (4-1 record), 9-10 (Undefeated) League title and are also Tri-Champs for the 13-14 (3-2 record). Our season is not over but this has been a great season so far. I did expect to be in the running for the League title but you never know what will happen until the meets are swam. Our 11-12 girls did fight a hard battle losing the league title with HATY by tying the meet. If we had just one more 3rd place finish we would have tied the title with HATY and be co-champs as well.

The Boys team had a great showing with a 3-2 record with an over-all and the following age groups placed second in the league: 8 & Under (2nd place), 9-10 (2nd place), 11-12 (2nd place), 13-14 (2nd place) & Opens (2nd place). It was a close season for the boys.

GREAT JOB PIRANHAS!

GOOD LUCK THIS WEEKEND AT CHAMPS! I DO EXPECT TO SEE SOME FAST SWIMMING!
