The 200-yard Medley Relay team of Olivia Chan, Susan Nugent, Kerrie Kolackovsky, and Alissa Leung, achieved second place at the State Championships in Buffalo in November for the Sewanhaka District Girls Swim Team. Their time of 1:49.30 was an Automatic All-American time and set a new Nassau County record. The team placed fourth overall in the State Championships. It was the highest placement of any Long Island team. Newsday named the team one of the top 10 teams of all Long Island sports in December.

Susan Nugent, a senior at New Hyde Park Memorial High School and team captain, was named Scholastic All-American for the second time. She was one of three current high school swimmers selected Scholastic All-American from Long Island. Susan will swim in the Atlantic 10 Conference for the University of Rhode Island in the fall.
