Swim Team Breaking School Records

With over a month still to go in the season, the Wildcats have already made a big splash in the record books of Westover's eight-year-old swim program. The Wildcats have seen seven of its 11 school records shattered this season.

New records include four individual ones (200 freestyle, 200 individual medley, 50 freestyle, 100 freestyle) set by freshman Morgan Foltz, who is also part of the three new relay records. The medley record was broken in early January at Hamden Hall by Bella Chen '20, Foltz, Lydia Mahan '18, and Sarah Pino '20.

Other new records include the 200 freestyle relay of Sophia Andrew '18, Chen, Pino, and Foltz, who touched for first place at 1:50.72 at Canterbury on January 28, tying with Westminster's top relay. The 400 freestyle relay of Andrew, Pino, Mahan, and Foltz found success touching at the School's fastest time at Convent of the Sacred Heart on January 18.

The Wildcats still have two all-girls school dual meets along with three major championship meets left in the season. The entire team will compete at the Connecticut Independent School Athletic Conference (CISAC) Championship at Hamden Hall on February 15, and the Bud Erich Invitational/Fairchester League Championship at Hopkins School on February 25; 16 swimmers will race at the New England Preparatory School Swimming Association (NEPSSA) Division III Championships at Deerfield Academy in Massachusetts on March 4.
