Delsea vs. Schalick
Although unable to capture a victory
in the water last night, the Delsea fish squad showed tremendous effort
and potential as they swam to beat their personal bests and qualify for
sectionals. Our varsity 200 yard freestyle relay (which consisted of Carey
Tatum, Kathy Pustizzi, Jon Voll, and Scott Bruck) took first place with
a time of 1:45.66. Scott Bruck also took a first place in the 100 yard
breaststroke, with a time of 1:11.38. Other commendable performances were
seen by some of the younger swimmers, like Kristin Scapelatto who refused
to be touched out in the 500 yard freestyle event, and Anthony Lynam, who
stepped up to fill in where the team needed him at the 200 yard freestyle
event. Now the team looks forward to the intense week of training ahead
to prepare them for their next victims, Williamstown and Woodstown.
Delsea vs. Williamstown
In swimming action on Saturday, the swim team added another win to their now 3-3 record in a Tri-County meet against Williamstown. Kathy Pustizzi and Carey Tatum took 4 first place finishes each. Lisa Hardy took a first place in the 200 yard freestyle event. Our Diver of the Week is Stephanie Alper, who broke the Girls' Diving Record for Delsea, which had been standing for 8 years. The previous record was 153.7, Stephanie achieved a score of 155.52. Our divers (Rick Whitson, Darci Miller, and Stephanie) swept the diving event on Saturday, taking 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. The first place medley relay consisted of Kathy Pustizzi, Jon Voll, Carey Tatum, and Jim Sullivan. The first place 200 yard relay consisted of Lisa Hardy, Jon Voll, Jim Sullivan, and Carey Tatum. The first place 400 yard relay consisted of Lisa Hardy, Brian Sykora, Alison Dadak, and Kathy Pustizzi. A strong effort by the younger swimmers who stepped up to fill in events was the key to our victory Saturday. Great job, guppies; keep up the hard work. This afternoon at 4:30, the swim team will swim against Woodstown, potentially the biggest meet of the year. Good Luck swimmers.
