Congratulations to Coach Whitmore and the Boys F/S Swim team!
Twelve swimmers qualified for the CPS F/S City Championships and the team finished in a strong 5th place behind perennial swim club team powerhouses Young, Jones/Payton, NCP & Lane. The team peaked at the right time, turning in season's best times in the 200 Medley Relay, 200 Free Style Relay, and 400 Free Style Relay. Individuals turning in their season's best times include: Ezekiel Bramble & Frank Tarshis in the 200 Free Style; Emmett Peterson & Justin Vazquez in the 50 Free Style; Ewan Evans in the 100 Butter Fly; and Jaden McNeal-Villafana in the 100 Breast Stroke.
A special 'shout-out' to first year swimmer Emmett Peterson who finished 7th place overall in the 50 Free Style, 8th place overall in the 100 Free Style, and led both the 200 Free Style Relay and 400 Free Style Relays to 4th place finishes overall.
Our young Varsity Swim Team qualified 6 swimmers in the CPS Varsity City Championships, finishing a distant 17th. Still this small group of boys turned in some strong performances, including season's best times: 200 Medley Relay team; Islam Saadeh & Simon Peterson in the 50 Free Style; Islam Saadeh in the 100 Free Style; Kielland Merritt in the 500 Free Style; and Jonathon Holcomb in the 100 Back Stroke.
Our next meet will be the IHSA Sectionals on .
