NHS Swim & Dive set Six Team Records in First Meet of Season

At Thursday night's opening meet of the season, Norton High School swimmers set 4 individual and 2 relay records during their contest with Dighton-Rehoboth and Taunton.

Freshmen Allison Hunt and Quinn McAlear each took down two individual records records and were part of new relay records, both in the very first high school meet of their careers.

Hunt was victorious in the girls 50 freestyle, posting a 27.13 to set the new standard.  She later bettered the 100 breaststroke record previously set almost exactly one year ago, with a 1:22.69.  McAlear overtook teammate Alex Belinsky's two records before joining him in the relay to set that new team standard.  McAlear clocked a 2:15.40 in the 200 Individual Medley and 1:11.19 in the 100 breaststroke to move his way into the team record books.

The girls 200 freestyle relay of freshmen Renee Sanford, Amanda Moriarty, Hunt, and senior Maddie Thomson posted a school-best 1:55.50 in their victory.  The boys team of juniors Eric Sanford and Belinsky and freshmen Brandon Blair and McAlear posted the mark of 4:01.91 to close out the meet with yet another record.
