Swimming Post-Season Update

By: Emma Borrow

For swimming, the post season is coming up, starting this coming friday. Hathaway Brown is in DII for swimming and diving; however, that does not mean any less competition! Some of the teams that the blazers will be competing against in the state tournament are Hawken, Columbus School for Girls, and Cincinnati Mariemont. This friday is sectionals at Spire Institute (BE THERE 4:30 PM). Each team is allowed 4 swimmers per event, and this year, making HB’s sectional team was very competitive. Within the northeast district, there are 2 sectional meets that go on simultaneously. Between these two meets, the top 30 times (swims) from each event will make districts and have the opportunity to swim next week at Cleveland State University. There are 4 districts meets in Ohio (we are in the Northeast District). At each meet, the top 2 places in each event will automatically qualify for States, making 8 out of 24 spots taken. Then, the next fastest 16 swims (out of all of the districts), will qualify for states. Last year, HB placed 4th in the state; however, this year we are hoping to move up! Make sure to wish all of the swimmers good luck! The lineup for HB’s post-season is listed below!
