Underclassmen stand out during Greenhill competition

Underclassmen stand out during Greenhill competition

The Bishop Lynch swim team competed Wednesday at Greenhill against the Hornets and Parish Episcopal. 

The Friars had a tough competition ahead of them as they had 25 percent of their roster down due to illness and injury. The swim team gladly stepped up to the challenge.

Both the Friars and Lady Friars were able to take care of Parish Episcopal easily with the men winning 94-40 and the women winning 108-33. Greenhill proved to be a tougher task as the Friars fell to the Hornets, the men on the losing end of 103-58 and the women at 87-68. 

A "tip of the swim cap" goes to four of our younger swimmers – sophomore Kate Springs, freshman Alejandro Amaro, freshman Zachary Ponewash and freshman Chloe Singleton.

Springs had personal bests in both individual events, including dropping five seconds in the 100 freestyle. Amaro won his first individual event dropping four seconds in the 100 butterfly. Ponewash had an impressive 100 breaststroke, turning in a team-best time of 1:17.78. Singleton caught up and came back at the end of her race in the 100 breaststroke to almost win with a personal-best of 1:33.04.
