Swimmers Drop More Records vs. Harborfields

September 13, 2017

The first day of autumn is still over a week away, but old school records litter the deck of the Swanson Natatorium like fallen leaves.

In their first three meets of the season, the girls’ swim team has broken four school records a total of eight times, bringing historic excitement to the third season of the program’s reboot. Against Huntington/Walt Whitman last Friday the 200 medley relay and 400 freestyle relay records fell. In a 56-38 victory over Lindenhurst on Monday, Madi Sargent broke the 200 and 500 freestyle records, then helped Rachel Crane, Rebecca Crane, and Yesenia McKee break the 200 and 400 freestyle relay records.

This afternoon, in a narrow 42-52 loss to Harborfields, two more records fell. Sargent lowered her own 500 freestyle record to 5:21.30, then helped the 200 freestyle relay team of Rachel and Rebecca Crane and McKee lower their record to 1:48.70.

Other individual and relay winners for the Bears included Rachel Crane in the 200 freestyle (2:07.85) and 100 backstroke (1:08.61), Sargent in the 200 individual medley (2:16.78), Rebecca Crane in the 100 butterfly (1:07.99), and the 400 freestyle team (4:00.43). While the Bears won two of the three relays and five of the eight individual events, Harborfields proved to be too deep as they took 13 of the possible 16 second and third place finishes.

The Bears return to the water on September 28th in a home meet with Sayville/Bayport-Blue Point.
