The Peterborough Wave Swim team joined the Wavemakers in Laconia for their second home meet of the season at LASC. The Wavemakers held a fun Pentathlon format meet, which gave all the swimmers the opportunity to swim all 5 strokes (butterfly, back, free, breast and IM - individual medley). Younger swimmer swam these events at the 25-yard length while older swimmers swam 50-yard lengths. This kind of format is a treat for the older swimmers, as they do not often get to swim the shorter events.
Top finishers for the 8 and unders were: Hannah Verville, Hayley Cochrane, Meredith Gerkin, Bridget Wilcox, Preston Kennell, Edward Goucher, and Sydney Philippy. For the 9-10 age group: Charlotte Philippy, Ela Goucher, Brooke Vetter, Jake Dumais, Ethan Vachon, and Lauren Sikoski. For the 11-12 group: Kathryn Hawkes, Angie Bonnell, Alexa Leonard, and Alexa Lazazzera. For final age group, 13 and Older: Rebecca Cook, Laurel Gingrich, Oliva Morea, Beck Mclean, Eric Phelps, Alyxandra Huckaby, Owen Sanborn, Alexandra Dimarzio, and Katie Gingrich.
Also recently, the Wavemakers swam away with a 5th place overall finish at the Connecticut Valley Invitational Meet in White River, Vt. Top placements leading the team to victory were Thor Burr, Hayley Cochrane, Edward Goucher, Ela Goucher, Kathryn Hawkes, Joshua Kelleher, Beck Mclean, Eric Phelps, Garrett Shafer and Hannah Verville.
The Wavemakers are heading into the championship portion of their season, currently sending 33 swimmers to New England Regionals, 6 to Silvers and 1 swimmer to the NE Age Group Championships.
