“Under the lights” in the first divisional dual meet of the season the Barons came up short against the Churchill Bulldogs, the defending regular season champs of Division 1. Despite the final result the performances throughout the meet appeared to be in post-season form. Divers Eleanor McGrath and Maddy Pfaff kicked off the meet with 1st and 2nd place finishes in diving and looked to put themselves in the conversation as some of the best divers in the county. On the swimming side there were several strong performances turned in by Jessie Khanna (200/500 Free), Nicole Vanderzon (50 Free/100 Fly), Rachel Danegger (200 IM/100 Breast), Angela Rysak (50 Free), Megan Spurney (500 Free) and Alex Waterman (100 Breast). In the final event of the meet, the girls 400 rree relay won with strong relay splits turned in by Caroline Hallmark and Jessie Khanna to close a three body length lead with less than 200 yards to go. Great job to all Baron swimmers and divers!
Next meet: 12/17 vs. Wootton @ MC-Takoma at 12:00 PM.
