The Friars show their talent kicking off the season at the Relay Carnival

The Lady Friars are already swimming like a team.  Our Captains Meghan and Erin, our seniors, and all our upperclass leaders have done a remarkable job making all our new swimmers feel comfortable. 

Great job to all.

Our final 8x25, 200 free relay brought the house down as Erin Boyle, Emily Bardak, Kat Meyers, Jackie Zahn, Kiersten Clancy, Jill Smerechniak, Pleasant Palmer, and the awesome finish by Beth Caruana, were able to win by only .08!  Whew...!

 St. Anthony's vs Holy Trinity:

The very first race of the first event of the first meet of the season already started us off with a bang as Beth Caruana, Kat Meyers, Emily Bardak, and Meghan Slattery qualified the Friars for States in the 200 Medley Relay!  

The Lady Friars went on to have Two More state qualifiers, as Emily Bardak AND Beth Caruana BOTH qualified in the 100 fly.

Pleasant Palmer won the 200 free in her first ever event as a Friar!

Jillian Smerechniak already looks fantastic as she wins the 200 IM.

In her first year as a Friar, junior Bryn Harley won the 50 free.

Beth Caruana qualifed her second individual event for States as she wins the 100 backstroke!  

Emily Bardak ripped the pool up with an outstanding swim in the 200 Free (just missing a State cut...)
