On Wednesday, Feb. 8, Friday, Feb. 10 and Saturday, Feb. 11, the Manhasset Swim Team competed in the Nassau County Team Championship.
On the first night of the County Championships, Wednesday, senior diver Peter Magliulo scored an 11 dive personal best to finish second and earn All-County honors. His score of 439.85 was over 50 points higher than his Divisional performance the previous week. It also qualified him for the NYS Championships in Buffalo, NY.
On Friday evening at the swim preliminaries, junior Andrew Chin improved his previous best time by another second, swimming a 1:02.24 in the 100yd Breaststroke, to earn an automatic spot at the NYS Championships in Buffalo, NY. Andrew is the first swimmer on the MHS Boys Team to earn a trip to state championship since 1999 when Matt Mailloux and Stu Weiss qualified for States.
Congratulations Peter and Andrew! Good Luck at States!
