The Middle School swimming and diving teams concluded their seasons at the Middle School Championships at Marist on Dec. 7 and 8. Just as they had done all season, the AquaKnights put in one personal-best performance after another.
In the diving competition, seventh-grader Emery Duncan finished in 21st place, while seventh-graders Ansley Freudenstein and Ansli Hennings were 30th and 37th, respectively.
Highlights from the individual swimming portion of the meet included a seventh-place finish in the 200 free for seventh-grader Caroline Hood; fifth place in the 50 free for seventh-grader India Motley; ninth place in the 100 fly and seventh place in the 100 breaststroke for sixth-grader Ledger Kincaid; and second place in the 100 backstroke for eighth-grader Marisa Sapre.
The boys 200 free relay team (eighth-graders Barrett Hight, Corey Lochan, Luca Tanasa and Kincaid) finished second overall, while the girls 200 free relay team (Sapre, sixth-grader Kate Cunningham, Hood and Motley) was fifth. The same girls made up the 400 free relay, which wrapped up the meet in sixth place.
The Pace girls placed eighth out of the 27 participating teams; the boys were seventh out of 21 teams; and the AquaKnights combined for an overall seventh-place finish. Way to go, Knights!
