SHARE Herald-News’ girls swimming notes

Coming off the program’s most successful season in 2012, the ’13 campaign was there for the taking for Plainfield Co-op. With the season flying by, coach George Sam’s squad is poised to improve off last season’s performance.

“It’s crazy that the conference meet is just five weeks away,” Sam said. “The girls have responded well coming off last season. Caroline Kelly is swimming under the cut in the breaststroke, our medley relay is getting there, and overall, the girls are looking at some good times with their eyes on achieving their goals.”

Kelly, McKenna Avery and Carly Kramer all are key swimmers for the co-op team, which will compete Nov. 2 at Oswego East in the Girls Independent Conference meet.

“The big thing is that our seniors have been varsity swimmers four years now,” Sam said. “The others look to them, and it’s starting to click. We’re seeing times we haven’t seen in midseason before.”
