MORRISTOWN, NJ – It’s now six wins in as many tries for the Morristown High School girls swimming team – and like the first five went – it wasn’t much of a challenge.
The Colonials won all 11 meets in Tuesday afternoon’s meet with Villa Walsh, and that led to a 122-48 victory in the Atno Avenue pool.
Junior Emily Skilton
led the way in a total team effort for the winners, having won the short sprint races of 50m (28.89) and 100m (1:02.87) while also being a part of the 4x200m medley relay and the 4x200m freestyle relay quartets.
In the middle-distance events, Annalise Webber and Nicole Barkemeyer won the 200m freestyle and inter-medley races, respectively, while Grace Miller won the 500m distance race with a time of 4:41.87.
