Meet #1

Kylie Danin and Meghan "Slatts" Slattery lead the Lady Friars as they BOTH qualify for States in the Friars first meet of the season!

 What an awesome first meet for the Lady Friars.  Freshman Emily Bardak and Sophomore Jillian Smerechniak swam a great race in the 200 IM.  That was followed by Slatts swimming an incredible 24.46 (just a mere .06 off the school record) and qualifying for States in her first swim of the season.  Senior Kylie Danin also looked in top form as she too qualified for States in her first 100 back (1:00.23).  Kat Meyers swam an amazing 1:09 in the 100 breast that had the entire place cheering!

Our coaches are already pleased seeing the progress this team has made in just it's first few weeks.  We are already looking forward to that special weekend in November!
