The girl’s relays placed first in the 200 and 400 free. The team of Maria Barnuevo, Sarah Manna, Allie Hosko, and Olivia Reese also took second in the 400, which was one of the key races for the girl’s team.

Bishop Guilfoyle’s Fiona McConnell was the only double winner of night for the Eagles. She placed first in both the 50 free and 100 breaststroke.

There was a lot of team spirit and it was an all around amazing meet. [We] really stepped it up and gave it [our] all at the end.”

Freshman Mae Decker placed first in the 100 back. She also dropped four seconds from the previous meet at Clearfield in the 500 free, ending with a final time of 6:08.07

“We did pretty well. There was a lot of team spirit and it was an all around amazing meet. [We] really stepped it up and gave it [our] all at the end. It was pretty awesome how the girls relays were cheering and getting ready to race,” said M. Decker.

Sophomore Hannah Gampe improved by three seconds in the 500 free with a time of 7:10.13.

Bellwood senior Sarah Knisley had a great swim, working 15 seconds off her last 100 fly time. Her final time was 1:46.01.

“I think we did good and we had good competition as well. I believe the real surprise was in our girls as a team pushing themselves and each other to make that win happen,” said Kinsley.

Also in the 100 fly, Hosko dropped almost two seconds from the last meet with a time of 1:26.39.
