Swimming To Success

Alex Tobin

 Foran girls swim team dives into success. This past Thursday, one of our very own, freshmen, Emma Longley, received 7th place in the Class S Diving Championship. Longley will also qualify for the State Open Diving Championship this Tuesday. Go out and support! Longley said she did not expect as much success that she had this year and the team really bonded and supported her. Longley’s best dive during the season in a 6 dive dual meet was 620.80. In her 11 dive meet she received a 348.02. Junior swimmer, Emma Bromley, said although there were many new additions to the team this year, she thought they did very well overall. Dana Luzzi, senior, said the team is very close and one of their best strengths is their head coach, Mrs. Skutches, due to her excessive knowledge. Emily Sportini, Sarah Fitzgerald, Erica Hanson and Ava Corsi broke the school record in the 200 Medley Relay this weekend. Sarah Fitzgerald also broke her school record in the 100 breaststroke. Although this is Foran’s second year in a row participating in the State Open Championship for swimming or diving, Foran has not been this strong since 2001, what an accomplishment.  The swimmers and divers finished their season with 4 wins, 6 losses, and a tie. Overall, the girls had a good season.   The season will come to an end tomorrow.
