The Terrapins sent 20 swimmers to the Husky Invitational in Federal Way, WA. last month and they collectively achieved over 60 best times in both long course and short course formats.
The local club was led by Weylin Foo, Adrian Dulay, Maile Andresen and Gigi Baldacci. Weylin was the men’s high-point winner at the meet with highlight swims in the 200 individual medley (1:51.93, 2nd), 100 butterfly (49.35, 8th), 200 fly (1:49.20, 7th) and 100 breaststroke (55.79, 3rd).
Dulay’s top swims were 200 IM (2:09.8 LC, Top 10), 100 fly (49.28, 7th), 100 breast (56.05, 2nd) and 200 breast (2:03.09, 6th). Andresen made the championship final in the 50 freestyle (23.37, 2nd).
Gigi Baldacci is new to the Terrapins, coming off summer recreation swimming, and made a huge splash in her biggest meet to date. She made the championship final in the 100 breast (1:03.80, 4th) and was top 24 in the 200 breast.
Several other Terrapin swimmers made finals during the meet including Will Birdsong (100 backstroke, 200 back and 200 free), Serafina Celentano (200 breast), Devin Masongsong (100 free and 200 fly) and Damien Donado (100 fly).
The team will be travelling to Arizona in February to swim in the Phoenix Winter Invite.
