PISCATAWAY, NJ - Finishing in fourth spot behind champion Scotch Plains-Fanwood, Westfield and Governor Livingston, the Summit High School Girls Swim Team Union County Championship performance at the Sonny Werblin Recreation Center yielded "Meet of Champions" (MOC) berths for Kaitlyn Hersch and two Hilltopper Relay Teams. 

The line of demarcation between first, second and third was clear, with Scotch Plains-Fanwood earning 422 points, Westfield 351 and GL 248. Summit's total of 214 edged fifth-place Oak Knoll's 192.

The top Summit finish on the day was the 200 Free Relay Team of Natalie Wisniewski, Julia Bligh, Emma Claus and Hersch, who took third place and a 'MOC' bid. The same aquatic quad of 07901ers earned another 'MOC' spot with their fourth-place 200 Medley Relay finish
