“I am extremely proud of the women’s swim team,” said WHRHS head coach Jared Figueroa. “Yesterday's energy, started with our senior captains - Jillian Logiudice, Olivia Lontai, and Elizabeth Askin - they are the heart and soul of the team. Their leadership combined with strong first place finishes from Melanie Nunn (100 Fly and 500 free), Vivan Zhang (200 IM) and Anna Baitel (100 Breast) allowed us to stay in control of the meet. This win was just a preview of what is to come for the female Watchung Hills Warriors!”
