Local residents Delaney Eichorn and Maggie McNamara have qualified for the Metropolitan Swimming Junior Olympics to be held in West Nyack, New York. The athletes will be competing for their club team Long Island Aquatic Club during the three day competition.
Long Island Aquatic Club, located in Garden City, is the premier USA Swimming Club on Long Island. The team regularly sends swimmers to compete at regional and national competitions, and has already qualified seven swimmers for the USA Swimming Olympic Trials this summer.
“These athletes have aspirations to become nationally ranked swimmers in the future. Their hard work and experience at the Junior level will help prepare them for the road that lies ahead,” said LIAC coach Ginny Nussbaum. “We look forward to their success this weekend.”
The Metropolitan Junior Olympics takes place March 16 – 18. Results will be available on LIAC’s website www.longisland swimming.com after the meet.
