Chick, Malone place at Classic meet
This past weekend Jan. 15 and 16, the YSHS swim team took on the 2010 Coaches Classic, one of the largest meets in the country with nearly 112 schools and over 3,000 swimmers participating. Yellow Springs made its mark, with Erika Chick bringing home two second-place finishes in the 200 free and the 1,650 free, and Elizabeth Malone with an eighth-place finish in the 200 butterfly.
Chick set a 30-second personal record in the 1,650 (mile) and had almost all of her 50 splits at 31 seconds in a final time of 17:17.32.
“It was the most beautifully constant swim I have ever seen,” Varsity Coach Naomi Witt said.
Chick also finished fifth in the 200 fly and seventh in the 500 free. Malone also gathered up a 10th-place finish in the 400 individual medley and a 15th place in the 100 fly.
Yellow Springs also finished many other swimmers in the preliminary races, but no others advanced to the finals.
“The team did amazing this weekend, setting new personal records right and left, despite the sleep-deprived conditions that come with a big meet like this,” Witt said.
