HANOVER VS PATRICK HENRY and HERMITAGE
November 27th, 2018
An outstanding start to the season. 1 State cut, 5 Regional cuts, 47 Hawk Invitational cuts, and 43 Varsity letter cuts. Out of 99 individual swims we had only two disqualifications. No one missed an event. Only one time did a swimmer come to me asking what event we were on.
Final scores:
Girls Hanover 115 Patrick Henry 54
Hanover 111 Hermitage 44

Boys Hanover 110 Patrick Henry 60
Hanover 131 Hermitage 28

Hermitage is in its first year. Only 18 swimmers at the meet. The Patrick Henry scores are almost exactly the same from last year.

The evening was highlighted by a few swims.

1. FRESHMEN MAKE THEIR PRESENCE KNOWN. A number of freshmen have already worked their way into the scoring heats. On the girl’s side Allison Everhart swam to a 2nd and 3rd place finish, Abby Gammons earned a 2nd place finish and would have been 4th in the 200 free if she was in the scoring heat, and Christine Gilbreath had the 3rd fastest time in the 100 free. On the boy’s side Nicholas Ligday picked up two 2nd places, Henry Atkinson would have placed 3rd overall if he was in the scoring heat, and Bryce Newton took home a 3rd place.

2. SOPHOMORE AND JUNIORS LEAD THE WAY. The Sophomore class won 3 events, would have won a fourth if Alex DeStephanis had been in the scoring heat for the 100 fly), and placed 12 swimmers in the top three. Sophomores winners include Natalie Culley (200 free), Jacob Eisele (100 free), Meghan Powers (500 free). The Juniors won 4 events: Caroline Blaser (100 free), Luke Daley (200 free and 100 back), and Daniel Richardson (100 fly). Jack Hufner could have won any number of other events however I placed him in two of his most undesirable races where he placed 3rd and 4th but also improved 3 secs in the 100 breast and 6 seconds in the 200 individual medley.

3. SURPRISE SWIMS Where to begin!? All across the board I saw improvements I could not have expected at the first meet. Alex DeStephanis dropping almost 10 seconds in the 100 fly from time trials only 3 weeks ago . Watching Jacob Eisele crush it on the final 50 of the 100 free to come away with a best time by over a second in the 100 free. Harrison Wilson dropping 7 seconds in the 200 individual medley to make Regionals. The boy’s 200 freestyle relay of Jack Hufner, Ben Schoenwiesner, Jacob Eisele, and Gavin Dillard achieving the State qualifying standard. Tanner Casares looks like he is ready for a breakout season with a 7.5 second drop in the 200 free and 2.5 second drop in the 100 free. Many, many others that you will see in the time drops.

4. First time 500 freestyle swimmer: Freshmen Nicholas Ligday and Bryce Newton. Sophomore Meghan Powers.

New Time Standards Achieved.
If you make a State, Regional, or Hawk Invitational qualifying standards, this means you have qualified for that meet and are ELIGIBLE to participate that event. This is not a guarantee as we have multiple swimmers that qualify for these meets and we are limited in how many swimmers can compete in each event.

If you qualify for States in a relay event, this does necessarily mean you will go to States on the relay. The relay has qualified for States. We can swim any four swimmers on the relay.

If you have a State cut, you also have everything other cut below. If you have a Regional cut, you also have everything else below.
