Girl Sharks give impressive showing

Submitted by Kari Waksmunski

The Lake Monticello Swim Team (LMST) hosted the Farmington Country Club Frogs in its second home meet of the season Tuesday (July 2). The red, white and blue across the pool deck for the patriotic-themed meet was a great way to kick off the Fourth of July festivities.

The Frogs won the meet, but the LMST girl Sharks won many events.

Julia Tomaras, 13, and Allyson Lounsbury, 15, won their age bracket 100-meter individual medley relays. In addition, the 13-14 bracket was dominated by LMST swimmers, who swept the first seven places. A medley is a combination of four different swimming styles – butterfly stroke, backstroke, breaststroke and freestyle.

LMST girls dominated the 50-meter breaststroke events. They came in first in the 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, and 15-18 age brackets. Winners include Lila Kate Robinson, 9; Anna Amato, 12; Tomaras; Abigayle Harlow, 16, first place; and Nora Wells, 15, second place.

The girls 15-18 50-meter backstroke was swept by Harlow, Wells and Jordan Franco, 17.

Harlow won the girls 15-18 50-meter freestyle. Lounsbury won the girls 15-18 50-meter butterfly, and took second in the girls 15-18 50-meter freestyle.

The girls 13-14 50-meter freestyle event was swept by Ava Amato, 14; Brenna Rea, 13; Riley Yowell, 14; and Teresa Champion, 13.

Reverie Rabinovitch, 6, and Madelyn Ford, 6, came in first and second place in the girls 6 and under 25-meter freestyle. The girls also won the 13-14 and 15-18 200-meter freestyle relays.

The boys weren’t completely left out! They won their 11-12 200-meter freestyle relay.

The Shark family enjoys time together in and out of the water. Swim team members marched in the Lake Monticello neighborhood parade Wednesday (July 3), throwing out candy to lucky bystanders. On Thursday (July 4), LMST runners wore #FinsUps t-shirts designed by Assistant Coach Maria Arroyo in the Lake Monticello Spirit 5K, and several members participated in the Swim Across the Lake event.

“Summer is always my favorite because I get to enjoy activities in and out of the pool with my swim family,” said Arroyo.

Swimmers of the week were Caleb Kimble and Abbie Ford.

The Sharks took on the Hollymead Hammerheads Wednesday (July 10). The last home meet will be July 17 against the Key West Killer Whales.
