vs. Westover School
February 22, 2020 @ 2:00 pm EST
It was an incredible day for Walker’s, celebrating the five seniors, Kathie L., Hayley B., and Captains Emmy V., Jane L., and Izzy O. The team put forth a 99-71 victory over Westover, winning five of the individual events and recording 16 new best times. First place finishes came from Lucia ‘25 (200 free and new PR!), Natalie S. ‘23 (500 free), Emmy V. (100 back and new PR!), Lucia (100 breaststroke), and the 400 freestyle relay of Charlotte F. ’25, Natalie, Alexia G. ’23, and Lucia.
Walker’s started out strong, earning three best times in the 200 freestyle from Lucia, Asha, and Charlotte. In the 200 IM, Molly shaved off a few seconds from last week and Jane swam it for her final time in the Walker’s pool, dropping drastic time from last season. In the 100 butterfly, Allison W. ’23 and Charlotte F. ’25 had great swims, with Allison dropping three seconds off of her best time. Charlotte swam it for the first time and nearly qualified in the event for New England’s! In the 100 freestyle, Cristina C. swam a best time as did Alexia G., who finished 2nd in the heat with a best time of a second. Hayley improved tremendously in the 500 freestyle from the first time she swam it last week, and Asha H. ‘22 dropped roughly 5 seconds in her race. Walker’s backstrokers of Emmy, Liyan D ’23, and Jane all finished 1, 2, 3 in the heat with best times across the board! Claire had great relay starts and Kathie swam the backstroke for the first time in the medley relay.
Congratulations to the team. Walker’s travels to Porter’s on 2/29/20 for Founders Championship, which will serve as the final meet of the season for several of the members.
