Mary Cate Pruitt earned her fourth state championship in the 2 mile event and unofficially placed first overall with men and women’s performances combined.

Ryan Drew demonstrated her toughness and efficiency by breaking from a pack midway and finishing 7th in the 3.2 mile event.

Emma Feltzer suprised all by placing 4th in the 2 mile event and unofficially recording the fastest closing 500 yards of all the competitors.

Aislinn Walsh teamed with Penn High School stand-out, Caroline Marks, to complete the 3.2 mile event and place 17th and 18th respectively. Walsh credits Marks for navigating the choppy waters for the pair throughout the two-hour swim.9-17-2017 025
