The West Haven Wizards won a close meet against rival Bristol Splash on Saturday, 342-329. This meet is affectionately known as “The Clash with The Splash,” and this year’s installment proved to be exactly that, with many close races that were decided by as little as 5/100ths of second.
The high school girls’ age group showed particularly strong during this meet. They took at least one of the three spots in each of their individual events: Emma Tirollo and Madison Hobart took first and third place in the 100-yard freestyle, Anya Celmer and Carly Weber took first and third in the 100-yard butterfly, the trio of Hannah Rascoll, Emily Eschweiler and Madison Hobart swept the 200-yard freestyle, and the 100-yard Backstroke as well; Emma Tirollo, Madison Hobart and Madysen Ellas swept. Anya Celmer and Carly Weber took first and third place in the 15-and-over girls 200-yard individual medley, Anya Celmer and Kaya Vital took first and third in the 100-yard breaststroke and Emma Tirollo and Hannah Rascol1 did the same in the 50-yard freestyle.
As the meet was nearing the end, the Wizards learned that going into the final relays, they were down by a point. The enthusiasm ramped up, as did the cheering! With all their teammates cheering them on the Wizards’ relay teams took at least one of the top three finishing spots in nearly all age groups and ended up winning the meet by 13 points.
The Wizards are now 7-0 on the season going into their final regular season meet against a speedy team from New Milford on Saturday.
