The varsity swim teams traveled to Bridgewater State University last weekend to compete in the 20th Bay Colony Conference championship meet, breaking several school records and in some cases earning spots in the South/Central Sectional Championships.

The teams placed sixth of eight schools at the meet. Mainland powerhouse Nauset took first place.

The 400 freestyle relay team of senior co-captain Galya Walt, junior Katherine Hansen, sophomore Renee Goodale, and freshman Lia Potter smashed their own school record in the event by nearly seven seconds, taking sixth place with a time of 4:13.65. The time was good enough to qualify for the sectional championship, which takes place this weekend at Wellesley College. Potter also broke her own school record in the 100 butterfly with a time of 1:07.39.

On the boys’ side, sophomore Patrick Best broke his previous school record in the 100 freestyle by a second, picking up a spot in sectionals. Best has already qualified for the meet in the 50 freestyle.

The boys’ 200 freestyle team came less than one second shy of qualifying for sectionals, with Best and teammates Tucker Cosgrove, Harrison Dorr, and Evan Sauter taking fourth place with a time of 1:41.10.
