Women’s 800 Free Relay

The foursome of Mary Pelton (2:04.08), Easop Lee (2:02.15), Maddie Runge (2:04.74) and Heidi Miller (2:02.36) chased down the title in the women’s 800 free relay with a time of 8:13.13.  That’s a few seconds off York YMCA’s meet record of 8:10.13 from last year, but still speedy enough by more than two seconds for the win.

Carmel finished second to keep piling up the team points. Veronica Burchill (2:05.23), Emma Nordin (2:04.14), Claire Adams (2:03.90) and Amy Bilquist (2:02.29) turned in an 8:15.56 to finish second in the relay.  PASA’s Jennifer Campbell (2:02.81), Lisa Kaunitz (2:06.52), Leah Goldman (2:05.02) and Ally Howe (2:02.16) earned third-place honors in 8:16.51.

Davis Arden (8:19.32), Y-Sparta (8:19.65), Dynamo (8:19.71), SwimMAC (8:20.40) and Santa Clara (8:20.93) also earned spots on the podium tomorrow night rounding out the top eight in the timed final event.
