Saturday February 1st, the swim team competed at the VISAA Divisional Invitational at The Freedom Center in Manassas, Virginia. There were 17 teams involved in the meet and R-MA truly performed to the best of their abilities, making improvements in several events.
Some stand-out performances include:
1st Place, 500 yard Freestyle- Quinn Blankenship; Quinn dropped over seven seconds off of her entry time
2nd Place, 200 yard Freestyle- Quinn Blankenship
2nd Place, 100 yard Backstroke- Cheng Qian; dropped close to one second off his entry time and only lost out to the swimmer of the meet
3rd Place, 50 yard Freestyle- Cheng Qian
Weather permitting, the swim team will progress to the DAC Championships at St. Michael the Archangel this coming weekend. Good luck Yellow Jackets!
