Promising finish for Warwick at US meet
The Warwick Academy swim team returned from participating at the Easterns Interscholastic Swimming and Diving Meet, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, yesterday, on the back of finishing in a highly respectable seventeenth position overall
Competing at the event, one of the largest and most prestigious US schools meets, for a third time, the team of Brian Desmond, Jack Harvey, Caleb Ingham, Harlan Watson-Brown, Flynn Watson-Brown, Taylor White, Tayla Horan, Josephine Duerden, Ambya Smith, Daria Desmond, Adriana Argent and Isabella Howes, improved on their showing of 20th last year.
With 40 teams competing, the Warwick team, who had six swimmers making their first appearance at the competition, managed to progress through to a team high of 16 finals, with all swimmers achieving personal best times.
As well as securing 19 personal best times between them, one standout highlight was the girls team making the A finals in the 400 metres free relay.
Another huge positive of competing at the event for the Warwick Academy swimmers was the opportunity to try and catch the eye of college recruiters, who will be looking to fill future rosters; with several hoping to impress as they work themselves through the NCAA and college application process.
