PIAA District IV Class AA Swim Meet Results Posted

Results can be viewed here

Yesterday was the conclusion of the PIAA District IV Class AA swim meet and the waiting game begins to see if a couple more Jersey Shore swimmers can qualify for the at-large bids.  Regardless, yesterday was a success as there were some large time drops and two new school records set. 

Luke Engel set a new 100 yard freestyle record with his time of 49.91.  That broke a 2005 record set by Eric Gephart of 50.30.  Engel was also part of a new record setting school 400 free relay along with Jon Creveling, Joey Fausey, and Keegan Wagner.

On the girls side, they ended the meet with an exciting 2nd place finish in the 400 free relay.  The video below has Gabbie Moore leading off (orange suit, lane 6, 3rd swimmer from the right), followed by Kendra White, Rachel Duda, and Emma Butzler as the anchor.

Jersey Shore Sends Swimmer to PIAA States on Day 1

After one day of swimming, Jersey Shore girls are in fifth place with 115 points (Central Columbia is in first with 252) and the boys are in 7th (Bloomsburg in the lead with 194).

Shore's Emma Butzler qualified for PIAA States with a win in the 100 yard butterfly at 59.10.  Teammate Gabbie Moore dropped 2.29 seconds to capture 5th.

Butzler also broke Shore's 200 yard freestyle with a second place finish at 1:56.17.  Bloomsburg's freshman Hanna Everhart took the event with a 1:53.00 and served notice to the rest of the swimming community that she is eyeing a very high finish at States.

Jersey Shore's biggest time drop of the day came from Kendra White as she dropped over 7 seconds in the 200 IM to finish 7th with a time of 2;21.78

And who says swimming cannot be exciting!  There was high drama involved as well.  After Saturday’s events, the Lock Haven Loggerheads were in 6th place; the 8-and-under and 10- and-under age groups really dominated, lifting the team to the second place finish.

Flashback Friday - Jersey Shore District IV Class AA Qualifiers from 2008

Several years of blogging have occurred at the Jersey Shore Swim blog with over 900 stories and articles posted.  With that in mind, the Jersey Shore Swim blog will occasionally pull out an occasional favorite or interesting item from the archives to share with readers (plus some interesting old stuff never posted) in a series called Flashback Friday.

The PIAA District 4 Class AA Championships will take place next week at the Williamsport High School where winners automatically advance to the PIAA State Champonships.  Below is an article from 2008 highlighting the swimmers that performed well enough in the District 4 Class AA Championships to advance that year.
