Swim Team Headed to States!
Your 2019 Sentinel State Qualifiers are:
Kaylei Cunniff - 200IM and 100 Breast
Brendan Peacock - 200 Free and 500 Free
Girls 200 Medley Relay (Kelsey Moss, Kaylei Cunniff, Erica Mills, Caitlin Ross / Ginger Thomas, Kelsey Villaflor, Julia Kelleher, Mia Incledon)
We will be enacting our plan to swim 4 girls at Prelims of the State Meet and 4 girls at Finals.
Just to unpack the results a little bit -
The girls team was 4th in team points. That is a huge accomplishment made possible by the big time drops at the meet and the relays really coming together. This was done by 5 girls swimming 2 individual events each and 3 relays.
Kaylei has made the State Meet in 2 individual event as an 8th grader. This is an outstanding achievement for Kaylei and places her in some very distinguished company. This is also a historic precedence for ECS as she becomes the first lady Sentinel to make the State Meet in individual events. She also smashed her own Team Records in the 200IM and 100 Breaststroke.
Brendan Peacock will be making his 3rd consecutive appearance at the State Meet and has positioned himself within striking distance of his goal.
All 3 seniors will get to finish their season and High School swimming careers at the State Meet. Erica Mills, Caitlin Ross, and Brendan Peacock will finish their time as Sentinel swimmers at State before starting their next chapters. I can't ask for a better way to send them off.
The Girls Medley relay will bring 8 girls through to State. Ginger Thomas, Kelsey Villaflor, Julia Kelleher, and Mia Incledon will be swimming the relay at Prelims and Kelsey Moss, Kaylei Cunniff, Erica Mills, and Caitlin Ross will swim the relay at Finals. This is another historic precedence for ECS and the girls team.
Erica Mills reset the Team Record in the 100 backstroke and Caitlin Ross reset the Team Record in the 100 freestyle.
The girls 200 medley relay and 200 free relay were well under their existing Team Records, the girls 400 free relay was nearly 6 seconds faster than they were at Districts.
Great Day! Great season! One more meet!
