On Thursday, the girls’ swim team wrapped up their regular season with a 54-40 victory over West Babylon.

The atmosphere was electric in Swanson as the volleyball team and boys’ and girls’ soccer teams turned up for part of the meet. The fans that packed the bleachers were treated to some great races and historic performances.

In the 50 freestyle, Rebecca Crane broke Amanda Shapiro’s ’04 school record (26.13), winning in a time of 25.67. Five events later, Rachel Crane wrote her own name into the record books, breaking the 100 backstroke record, set in 1992 by Christina Haag ’92 (1:06.90), in a time of 1:04.64.

Other individual event winners included Francine Leung in the 200 freestyle (2:33.82), Rebecca Crane in the 100 butterfly (1:07.35), Alena Yukova in the 100 freestyle (1:12.58), Josie Levy in the 500 freestyle (7:13.12), and Rachel Crane in the 100 breaststroke (1:30.99). Two relay teams took first place as well as Kate Jones, Rebecca Crane, Rachel Crane, and Francine Leung took top honors in the 200 medley relay (2:08.29) and Rebecca Crane, Kate Jones, Josie Levy, and Rachel Crane finished first in the 400 freestyle relay (4:32.35).
