"We swam off events today and saw a lot of success, it was a good meet overall," stated WestConn head coach Jill Cook following the events.
Junior Annelise Alfieri (Southington, CT) paced the Colonials, capturing the top spot in the 100-yard individual medley and second place in the 50-yard breaststroke. Sophomore Juliana Bell (Bethel, CT) earned a first place showing in the 200-yard breaststroke shortly before junior Holly Bly (Watertown, CT) touched the wall to seize first in the 500-yard freestyle.
Notable performances were also displayed from WestConn sophomore Rachel Peet (New Fairfield, CT) who took home second place in both the 200-yard backstroke and 1000-yard freestyle events. Senior Sarah Sheaffer (New Fairfield, CT) also beat out Westfield's Monique Groux to capture a win in the three-meter diving competition.
