Swim and Dive

By Julia McDermott, Sports Editor

The Bulldogs swim and dive team finished up a powerful season Feb. 8 with a big win for the girls team at the Metropolitan Swim and Dive Championship.

The top swimming contributors were seniors Harrison Gu and Alicia Tiberino, junior Elaina Gu and sophomore Hannah Lindsay.

“We knew we had a chance to win Metros,” Tiberino said. “We knew Wootton was coming after us and wanted the title too.”

The swim season for the boys was not as consistently strong as the girls, but the team still pulled off a fourth place finish in its division, only one point away from third.

In diving, CHS took first in both boys and girls at Metros with junior Kali Becker and freshman Mory Gould, along with a 2nd place finish from senior Mashal Hashem for the girls.

After failing to defend their 2012 Metros title after a second place finish in 2013, both sides of the swim and dive team were hungry for another win.
