The girls swimming and diving program at WHS has done it again. The Eagles captured a 13th straight conference championship after defeating Windsor 99-82 last Tuesday.
“Every year is a new team and a new mountain. It’s about finding a way to get it done no matter what,” stated head coach Lee Schwartzman. “Thanks to those that came and found a way to make it seem ‘normal’.”
Schwartzman’s team dominated the event against Windsor, winning all but one swimming event.
Jilian Pitchell, Sabrina Schuster, and Alanna DePinto each won two individual events. Pitchell won both the 50 freestyle and the 100 breaststroke, Schuster won the 200 freestyle and 100 butterfly, and DePinto won the 200 IM and 100 freestyle.
Anabella Cartiera won the 100 backstroke and the Eagles won all three relay races.
DePinto, Cartiera, Jaime Condon, and Edie Carson combined to take first in the 200 medley. DePinto, Schuster, DePinto, Condon, and Olivia Krout took first in the 200 freestyle relay. Pitchell, Schuster, Krout, and Arnold Brooke closed the meet with a best-time in the 400 freestyle relay.
The Eagles have a pair of home meet against East Lyme on Thurs, Oct 28 at 5 p.m. before hosting a conference tournament on Fri, Nov 5, starting at 3:30 p.m.
