Women’s swim meet
This past week, C.W. Post women’s swimming came up short in their meet with the Bridgeport Purple Knights. Though the loss dropped the team’s overall record to 3-7 the meet was not a total loss for the Pioneers. The team gained some momentum in this close loss with five individual victories coming from some of the youngest members of the squad. The Pioneers’ “A” relay team started off the meet with a victory against Bridgeport’s “A” team. Senior Riley Cassidy, sophomores Cornelia Hanes and Mairi Morrison, and freshman Tamara Garriock teamed up to win the 400 Medley relay with a time of 4:31.60.
Individually, Hanes came away with a victory, narrowly winning her individual 50 Free with a time of 27.30. Beating her opponent by .05 seconds. In the 100 Butterfly, Cassidy took first place with a completion time of 1:06.60. In the next event, Morrison took first in the 100 Free with a time of 1:00.87. Finally, Garriock came away with three straight victories for the Pioneers, winning the 100 Back with a time of 1:08.54.
There was nothing that these girls needed to hang their heads about. Even though the team failed to walk away with the victory, there is much to look forward to at their next meet and beyond, especially from the Pioneer’s younger swimmers. The team’s next meet will be the East Stroudsburg Invitational next Sunday at 12 p.m., the team’s last regular season meet.
