An Update: Milton’s Swim Team Finds Success at New England’s

by on Thursday, March 9th, 2017

This past weekend marked the New England Championship Swim Meet at Hotchkiss. Milton Academy’s very own swim teams competed against several other prep schools. Since both the boys’ and the girls’ teams won their respective ISL Invitational Meets this year, Milton is a force to be reckoned with. Two weekends ago, the swim team competed in the Eastern Championship Meet at Franklin and Marshall. To find out how the team did, I asked captain Casey DeLano (I).

For the boys’ team, two records were broken: one individual and one relay. In the 200 meter individual medley, a race where a single racer swims every stroke, JJ Batt (I) swam a record breaking time. For the boys’ 200 meter medley relay, the team of Dillon Pang (III), Harrison Jia (I), JJ Batt, and Thomas Hannah (I) broke the record that they already owned. On the girls’ team, Mary Howley (IV) placed 7th in the 100 meter butterfly. The girls’ 200 meter medley relay team of Caroline Magann (II), Leydn McEvoy (IV), Mary Howley (IV), and Casey DeLano broke the record from 2002. This record was one that has not been broken in the last four seasons.

In the New England Championship this past weekend, the swim team sought to continue this trend of record breaking. However, Milton swimmers were unable to clinch records in the relay races. Nevertheless, many swimmers came close, and some set new personal records. Members of the swim team attributed these successes to the hard work that everybody invested into preparing for the competition, as well as the energy and excitement of the event itself. The end of this competition officially marked the end of the swimming season, and for graduating seniors, the end of their swimming careers at Milton. Although some were disappointed with some of the results, the swim team came out of the New England Championship feeling accomplished for this season’s fantastic feats.

Swimming at Milton does not often get talked about because the team practices and competitions are off campus, but swimmers are some of the best athletes at our school. Having swam on a swim team in the summer since I was six years old, I can tell you that it is not easy. I like to think of myself as an athlete, and I play sports every season of the year, but I struggle every summer to keep up with the other kids who swim during the winter as well as the summer. Like any other sport, swimming takes a lot of technical skill as well as athleticism, and people who focus solely on swimming not only are in a better physical condition but can also maximize their effort into the sport. For people at Milton to be breaking records in this sport is an amazing testament of our fellow athletes’ prowess and dedication.
