The Wizards season ended with a bang. The Yankee League All-Star Pentathlon was packed full of exciting races and best times.
Wizards who earned top 6 finishes in the Yankee League were: Arianna Rose – 6th place for the 6 & under Girls, Michael Wight – 4th place for the 6 & under boys, Lauren Blake – 4th place and Kaleigh Morton – 6th place for the 11/12 girls, Collin Charron – 4th place for the 11/12 boys, Vivian Freitas earned first place and was crowned the Yankee League Champion for the 13/14 girls, Madison Hobart – 6th place for the 13/14 girls, Anya Celmer – 2nd place and Jillian Doherty – 6th place for the 15 and over girls.
One of the most fun parts of the All Star Meet is the Coaches Relay. The kids get to cheer on their coaches as they race against the coaches from the other teams in a 200-Yard Medley Relay. This year the West Haven Wizards Relay Team of Callie Jackson, Eric Pimer, Jay Falanga and Sean McCauley took first place.
The Wizards next event will be an Olympic Swim Clinic, in which swimmers will get the opportunity to learn from former Olympian and Silver Medalist Kristy Kowal and upcoming Olympian and American Record holder Zane Grothie.
