Thomas S Wootton High School
Poolesville Sr High School
The Wootton Swim & Dive team came back from Winter Break with force as we took on Poolesville. The meet finished with final scores of 98-73 (girls) and 103-68 (boys), leaving our boys at the top of Division II!
Despite the looming threat of exam week, the Patriots remained tough. We started off in amazing fashion with our divers! Way to go Will Sherman and Michael Tran on their first and third places! Regan Westwood also nabbed first and Lily Parker slipped into fourth. When swimming events started, our young men raced to the finish in the boys 200 medley relay by placing first (Aaron Lazar, William Shen, Karl Treichel, and Jeffrey Qin) and second (Will Sherman, Kevin Scher, Eric Meyer, and Yusuf VanGieson). Of the seven remaining events in the first half, Patriots took home first place in 5 of them! What a f first half!
But we didnât stop there! Karl Treichel was at it again when he and Eric Lu finished first and second in the 500 free. Daniel Chen and Aaron Lazar also took first and second in the 100 back. Rita Zhang also took first place in the 100 back. Cece Zhao, Claudia Gibson, Rita Zhang, and Lynn Zhang wrapped up the meet with a first place in the girls 400 free relay.
Keep up the great work, Patriots!!
