EWING, NJ -- In a meet between No. 1 seeded Scotch Plains-Fanwood and No. 2 seeded Moorestown, the Quakers overtook a Raiders lead half-way through the 400 meter Freestyle Relay to win their first State championship since 1995 in an dramatic 91-79 victory.
Moorestown's Emily Wisniewski, who won the 200 IM and 500 Freestyle, and teammate Holly Robinson, who touched first in the 200 Freestyle and 100 Butterfly, led the charge. They also combined with Abby Wilson and Allie Waggoner to win the 400 Freestyle Relay and seal the victory. Robinson made up time for the Quakers, while Wisniewski pulled away during the last 50 meters of the race.
"We had such a great meet today with several best times and many close races," said Coach Jessica Hulnik in an interview with TAPintoSPF. "Our seniors, as always, were incredible in both their swims and their leadership. We graduate 14, and they all will be missed greatly. On the plus side, we bring back a great group that will be more than ready to set the tone for next season."
