     Saturday, February 24, the North Harford swim team headed to the University of Maryland, for the Maryland High school swimming states competition. The team took 17 swimmers, 9 of who swam in individual events, and 4 relay teams.

    Coach Hillary Stanmeyer had this to say about the group’s overall performance, “I think that for the team States was really wonderful. A lot of good swims on both the boy’s team and the girl’s team. There were many best times and even two school records. I don’t think that it could have gone any better.”

   Senior boys Captain Frank Badders agrees.  “The team did great, most everyone had best times. I was very proud of how we did it was the final cumulative meet to all our hard work. And I feel that how we did at states really show just how much all that hard work paid off.”

    The girls team did especially well, sending 11 swimmers and coming in 4th place overall. The girls team counted for three of the five relays that went to states, the 200IM (Emmie Catrambone, Lizzie Catrambone, Erin O’Leary, and Lauren Seco), the 200 free relay (Natalie Jacobs, Erin O’Leary, Lauren Palmeri, and Emily Iamperi), and the 400 free relay (Emmie Catrambone, Lizzie Catrambone, Emily Iamperi, and Lauren Seco).

  “The girls placed a lot higher than I even thought possible and that was so amazing, they were only seven points from being third place in the state which is really awesome,” said Stanmeyer. The 200IM relay placed in fifth while the 400 free relay placed in 3rd, both of these relays breaking school records.
