Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School sophomore Gabby Carr became the first Vineyard swimmer to ever score points at the Division 2 state meet Saturday night in Boston, finishing in the top 15 swimmers in two individual events.

Carr finished in ninth-place in the 200-yard freestyle with a time of 2:01.27 in a crowded field of 24 swimmers. She was the top finisher from the Bay Colony, the Vineyard’s home conference. She also placed 13th in the 500-yard freestyle with a personal and school record of 5:30.27.

“Gabby improved over last year. It’s tough to keep doing best times,” said coach Jonathan Chatinover.

The Vineyard also fielded a girls relay team for the first time. The 400-yard freestyle relay team finished in 20th place with a combined time of 3:59.71 from the efforts of eighth-grader Annabelle Brothers (1:00.19), sophomore Yayla DeChiara (58.55), senior Jasselle Wildanger (1:04.93) and Carr (56.04).

The 200-yard freestyle team finished in 27th place with a combined time of 1:49.42 from DeChiara (26.90), sophomore Eleanor Hyland (28.66), Brothers (27.34) and Carr (26.52).

The combined performances put the Vineyarders in 33rd place overall out of 51 teams, the highest finish for a Vineyard team. Both the boys and girls teams finished the regular season with 6-4 records, the first time either team has finished over .500 in the five-year history of the program.

“They did really well,” said Mr. Chatinover. “I think they got the idea of what their potential is. As a coach that’s all I can ask for, that the kids are into it and want to improve and see what they can achieve.”

With most of his young team expected to return next season, he said he expects even greater achievements to come.

“It’s a good feeling being part of a competitive team,” he said.
