NHS Swim & Dive Set 5 More Team Records, post Sectional and State Qualifying Times

The Norton High School Swimming & Diving Team swam a great meet against TVL foe Medfield on Sunday, losing 95-86 while posting 24 individual best times, setting 5 team records, and notching Sectional- and state-qualifying times.

Freshman Allison Hunt placed first in the 100-yard freestyle against a group of boys and girls, clocking a very fast 58.34, which is a new team record and a State-qualifying time.  She also placed third in the 100-yard backstroke.

The 200-freestyle relay team of Hunt, freshman Renee Sanford, senior Madie Thomson, and freshman Amanda Moriarty clocked yet another team record in that event, the third of the year.  Their time of 1:54.40 qualifies them for Sectionals.  Hunt's leadoff leg of 27.06 broke her own team record and is also a Sectional-qualifying time.

Junior Alex Belinsky took first place in the 50 freestyle, missing his own team record by 6 hundredths of a second. He placed second in the 100 yard butterfly, posting a personal best of 59.02.  His time in that event broke his own team record and was just 2-hundredths of a second off of the Sectional qualifying time.

Freshman Quinn McAlear took finished second overall in the 200 Individual Medley, besting his own team record with a time of 2:14.59.  McAlear was also victorious in the 100-yard breaststroke.

Twenty four of the team's 34 individual swims were for personal-best times, which is extraordinary.  The team has broken at least two team records in each of its four meets this season.

The Lancers next face Ashland, another TVL opponent, on Sunday at Wheaton College.
