RELAYS

Chelmsford: 200 freestyle

This group of Lions, left to right, Jenny Day, Caitlin Sheridan, Casey Curran and Mary Kate Cohen, captured the top spot at the Division 1 state tournament in a record time of 1:38.19, less than a second in front powerhouse Andover. The team was led by its lone senior, three-time All-Scholastic Cohen. The future is still bright with junior Curran and sophomores Sheridan and Day returning.

Andover: 400 free, 200 medley

The first and last events of the state meet are the 200 medley relay and the 400 freestyle relay respectively, and fittingly the Golden Warrior team of, left to right, Ashlee Korsberg, Maggie D’Innocenzo, Emma Cammann, Alexa Korsberg, Rachel Moore and Maeve Awiszus dominated both at the Division 1 meet en route to a seventh straight state title. Moore and Ashlee Korsberg, Korsberg’s twin, Alexa, and D’Innocenzo won the 400 in 3:28.77, besting the field by eight seconds. Cammann and Awiszus were half of the title winning 200 medley team and repeat All-Scholastic selections.

Bishop Stang: 200 free, 200 medley

Continuity was the theme for this group of racers, left to right, Andrea Gauvin, Elizabeth Rose, Olivia Decas, Maria Lopez and Kirby Roberts. Three of the four swimmers competed for both the 200 free and 200 medley Division 2 state championship relay teams. Decas, Gauvin, and Rose were the mainstays. Decas, an All-Scholastic and state champion in the 50 free, swam the lead in the 200 medley, and the anchor of the 200 free. Gauvin, who took second in the 100 breast individually, swam strong splits as the second leg of both teams. Elizabeth Rose, who finished third in the 200 IM and 100 breast, was the anchor of the 200 medley team, finishing her split in 24.97. Maria Lopez was the fourth member of the 200 medley team, swimming her split in 26.95, while Roberts swam the opening leg of the 200 free team. With Decas, Rose, and Lopez returning next year, the continuity should continue.
