Swimmers End Strong at YISS Spring Invitational

May 23, 2016

On Saturday, May 21, over 150 swimmers from YISS, Chadwick, and SFS participated in the final age-group swim meet of the school year. In the meet, many swimmers swam personal best times, set Guardian All-time Top 5 records, and even broke a few school records!

In addition to best times, the following individuals from YISS also earned the highest points in their age-group: Abby B. (Girls 15&Over), Jiyu S. (Girls 13-14), Soomin Y. (Girls 9-10), Daniel N. (Boys 15&over), Kyle W. (Boys 13-14), Eric O. (Boys 11-12), and Benjamin C. (Boys 9-10).

Even more exciting, some swimmers braved their first swim meet, literally diving in and then finishing their races having learned and grown as athletes. Everyone can be proud of their results this past Saturday.

At the end of the meet the swimmers and spectators were treated to a special fun exhibition relay that included the following teams: HS students, YISS seniors, YISS alumni, and two relay teams that consisted of YISS parents and coaches from all schools. The swimmers and spectators were simultaneously wowed and comically relieved by these relays.

The Aquatics Department encouraged everyone to keep swimming this summer and come back next year ready for more great swimming.
