Chatham Boys and Girls Swimmers Excel for Madison YMCA Mariners

Credits: Bernard DeLierre

Chatham was represented by 20 swimmers on the Madison YMCA's Mariners team that competed in the YMCA East Field Championship Swim Meet held last month in Princeton.  

All swimmers needed to "qualify" for this meet in order to even compete. That means they needed to swim faster than "x" time in each event. That means this is a very fast meet with only your fastest swimmers from each of the 10 YMCA swim teams that competed. 

Chatham Girls with Top 6 Finishes:  

-  Molly Newman (age 10) led the way with 5 Top 6 finishes:  she placed 2nd in 50-yd freestyle, 2nd in the 100-yd backstroke, 3rd in the 100-yd freestyle, 4th in the 50-yd backstroke and 5th in the 100-yd IM.
