WARREN, NJ - The Governor Livingston girls swim team resumed their season after winter break on Tuesday with a solid win over Kent Place, finishing first in ten of eleven events and running up a score of 123-47.
Approaching the midway point in the season, Head Coach David Closs decided to mix up the event roster a bit, having swimmers mostly abandon their stronger events to swim new ones and giving some of the more untested swimmers a chance leave the bench.
"It's nice to get a lot of the kids in multiple events, having them do events they don't normally do," said Closs. "You're never quite sure what you're going to get with Kent Place - sometimes they have some really good swimmers. They are just having a bit of a down year, and our girls came out and did a really nice job today."
First place finishes were scored by the following swimmers:
200 medley relay: Rachel Heeren, Nicole Biegel, Bailey Gold, Aidan Donahue
200 free, 500 free - Sarah Montagna
200 IM, 100 breast - Aidan Donahue
50 free, 100 fly - Bailey Gold
100 free, 100 back - Rachel Heeren
200 free relay - Taylor Rooney, Sarah Montagna, Serena Shen, Phoebe Kim
Other highlights included a 1-2-3 sweep of the 200 IM by Aidan Donahue, Ashley Chang and Julia Woo and another 1-2-3 sweep in the 50 free by Bailey Gold, Sena Hur and Sarah Polizzi.
The Lady Highlanders will next be hosted by Cranford on Thursday, Jan. 11 at 3:45 p.m.
