[media-credit name=”Gabriela d” align=”alignright” width=”223″][/media-credit]Thursday afternoon, Carlmont’s swim team won their third league meet of the season against Woodside High School.

The swimming Scots kicked this season off with another great start and are now tied for first in the Peninsula Athletic League.

Carlmont did exceptionally well against Woodside’s fierce completion, coming out of the meet with wins for all four teams.

The most anticipated race was by far the relays, which proved to be the most exciting and completive of all events on Thursday.

The most intense of these races was the girls’ junior varsity 4 by 50 meter B team race, comprised of Marissa King, Hannah Carney, Hallie Frietas, and Kaitlyn McGrath. These four girls swam their hearts out and beat the A team’s time by one second.

Sarah Fecher, a sophomore on the junior varsity team, commented about the meet saying that, “[The Scots] are doing really well. We win most of the time, and I think we improved a lot from last year.”

This year the swim team coach, Jim Kelly, the activities director and a math teacher at Carlmont, has stepped up the workouts that the swimmers do. To insure physical aptitude, Kelly has his team swimming 5,000 meters per day.

However, with PAL just around the corner, Fecher has informed us that their team will soon be tapering their workouts so that they do not burn out for the tough competition ahead.
