Wayland Swimmers Break School Record (Twice)

At a home meet in Sol Wolfe Pool on December 9, 2016, Wayland’s young 200 Free Relay team of Tia Thomas `20, Hailey Johnson `20, Jackie Gorman `19, and Simar Garcha `19 set a new school record. They finished the 200 in 1 minute, 57.79 seconds, eclipsing the previous record of 1:58.01 set in 2011 by Samantha Lindquist `12, Meghan Turner `12, Valerie Pryme `13, and Eva Grosz `14.

As if that weren't enough, the 200 Free Relay record was broken again near the end of the season. A 200 freestyle relay team composed of Gorman, Hannah DeGuzman `19, Thomas, and Johnson re-broke the school record with a time of 1:56.46 (over a full second faster).

At the December meet, the boys 200 Free Relay missed the school mark by only half a second. The team of Chris Neil `19, Nick Rahming `17, David Kesselmann `19, and Easton Meier `18 hopes to capture their own record over the course of the season.
