Swimming - Varsity vs. Hopkins School
vs. Hamden Hall Country Day School

Event Type: Regular

Date: January 28, 2012


Event Recap:

Saturday afternoon, the Chase Collegiate Varsity Swim Team met Hopkins and Hamden Hall in New Haven for the team's second tri-meet of the season.  Chase, down five swimmers and swimming several athletes recovering from illness and injury, had to rely heavily on their strengths to pick up the slack, but the versatility of the team was apparent as they put it all together at the right time. Swimmers Rylan Carleton and Austin Anderson proved their adaptability by swimming unfamiliar events to make up for the absent swimmers.  The 200 Medley Relay consisting of Meghan Grimes, Pam Salisbury, Tom Brayton, and Craig Cote out-touched Hamden Hall in a time of 2:30.00, a best time for the event.  Sisters Meghan and Liz Grimes battled a field of boys (and each other) in the 100 Freestyle to finish less than one second of one another. Chase's Adam Harrison swam two personal season best times and won the 500 Freestyle in a time of 5:38.69.  Meanwhile, a jubilant Captain Madi Carleton swam a 6:10.65 and improved her 500 Freestyle time by eight seconds, which separates her by less than two seconds from the school record.  In the meet's final event, the 400 Freestyle Relay, Chase edged out Hamden Hall by a mere two-tenths of a second to grab fourth in the event.
