Girls Swim Team Sprints To A Great Start


DSCN4488The Girls Varsity Swim Team began their 2015 season with a league meet vs. Massapequa on Wednesday night, Sept. 9. The meet opened up in an exciting fashion with Manhasset posting a 1-2 finish in the 200 Medley Relay. The girls swam a great meet, recording many mid-season type of times in the first dual meet. In the meet’s sixth event, 100yd Butterfly, Manhasset junior Megan Smith qualified for the New York State Championships. This is the first time in team history that a swimmer qualified for states in the first meet.

On Saturday Sept. 12, the Indians competed at the Nassau County Relay Carnival, held at Eisenhower Aquatic Center. For the second consecutive season, Manhasset took first place out of 17 Nassau County teams who participated at the Relay Carnival. The girls followed up the Relay Carnival effort with victories against Conference opponents Jericho and Great Neck South to improve their team record to 3-0.
