After a surprise send-off at the high school last Wednesday, Elle Holland was one of 75 Section 6 girls to attend the NYS swim meet held at Ithaca College last Friday and Saturday. Elle competed in both the 100 free and the 100 back during preliminaries.
After swimming Friday, she was able to move up six spots and return back on Saturday for finals in the 100 free. This is a big accomplishment for Elle, and she was very pleased to be able to make it back to finals with such amazing talent in the pool.
Our SGI swim community is so proud of Elle and her success this season. Elle broke five individual school records, was anchor of the 200 free relay team (Hannah Bergner, Allie Lavanture, and Lauren Ditchey) that broke a 1998 school record, and also broke two pool records. The state meet was a well-deserved highlight for Elle and we look forward to her return and attack next year!
