Winning Swimmers

Three swimmers from the Martha’s Vineyard YMCA’s Makos Swim Team, 11 and 12-year-old category, recently competed in the Bay State Games, held July 9 and 10 at Harvard University and featuring swimmers from around the state.

Patrick Best took a bronze medal for third place in the 200-meter breaststroke, and Lia Potter was a member of the third-place-winning 200-meter medley relay team. Renee Goodale competed in the 100-meter breaststroke and finished 10th out of a large and competitive field.

Patrick, Renee and Lia all had qualified at the regional competition in Taunton in June, allowing them to move on to the finals.
