Congratulations to Varsity Swimming on their first EIL Championship title in 10 years! The Wildcats claimed the win by a margin of 68 points after falling to Dana Hall last year by only 40 points.
Final scores for the meet:
Dana Hall- 471
"The team was spectacular this weekend and swam faster they I could have ever imagined," said 12-year Head Coach Christina Baudis, who was named the 2018-2019 EIL Coach of the Year. "This was because of all the hard work, the daily focus on details and tremendous teamwork and support for each other. This team has had a special vibe since the first day of the season."
At EILs, Winsor swimmers broke five school records: 200 Medley Relay (Holiday Host '23, Lettie Cabot '19, Caroline Nolan '20, Maggie Satterthwaite '23), 200 and 500 Free (both by Ava McLaughlin Leeman '22), 200 IM (Fiona Dunn '19), and the 400 Free Relay (Caroline Bae '24, Julie Wilson '19, Fiona Dunn '19, Ava McLaughlin Leeman '22).
The student athletes recorded 14 lifetime best times and 7 season best times, and every swimmer placed top eight in their individual events, making a huge impact on the meet scoring (the top eight places score the most points).
Coach Baudis is proud of senior tri-captains Lettie Cabot, Fiona Dunn, and Julie Wilson, who led the team through the season with their positive dynamic. "I like to say, 'happy swimmers equal fast swimmers!' That is our team motto!"
Winsor will compete at the New England Swim Championships at Wesleyan University on Saturday, March 2, 2019. They are hoping for a repeat of EILs—lots of fast swimming, smiles and fun!
