Chick finishes sixth at state

Yellow Springs High School freshman swimmer Olivia Chick ended her first season as a Bulldog with a pair of top 10 finishes at the state finals.

Chick finished sixth in the 200-yard freestyle and seventh in the 100-yard freestyle at the Division II Ohio Swimming and Diving Championships, held in Canton this weekend.

Chick swam the 100-yard freestyle in 52.04 and the 200-yard in 152.65.

During an impressive freshman season, Chick chased her older sister Erika’s school records, and in January, finally bested Erika in the 100-yard freestyle with a new record of 55.41, which she improved to 51.25 at districts (Erika, who graduated in 2012, still holds seven individual YSHS swimming records).
