Congrats to the Braves Swim and Dive team on picking up their 12th consecutive league championship last Saturday. They are the only team to ever win a SWOC championship in swimming. It was a record-setting night for the Braves as they broke 7 league records en route to the championship. Jess Crowder broke both the 50 and 100 Freestyle league records, Ben Crowder broke the 500 Freestyle league record, Sean Mondello broke the league record in the 1 meter diving event, and Camille Flaspohler broke the league record in the 100 Breaststroke. Additionally, both 200 Freestyle relay teams broke the league records. That’s the girls’ team of Camille Flaspohler, Rory Adryan, Maria Marecos, and Jess Crowder, and the boys’ team of Ben Crowder, John Anzano, Blake Madden, and Noah Curry. And special congratulations to Jess Crowder and Noah Curry for being named SWOC Athletes of the Year. The Braves are now on their way to the state tournament, the sectional round taking place February 9th and 10th.
