The Nantucket boys and girls swim teams hosted the Nauset Warriors Thursday evening. The girls team had a very rare result, tying Nauset 88-88. On the boys side of things, Nauset took away the win 97-66.
“It is pretty rare to tie but what that says to me is that overall we can definitely beat them,” head coach Sophie Davies said. “It is hard as we were coming off a week without having practice, which the other team doesn’t have that issue so I was super impressed with all the swimmers. I thought everyone was able to come together and swim some great times.”
Davies said she felt Hannah Gerardi had a strong meet. Gerardi swam a sectional time in the 200 yard IM (2:26.62) and the 100 yard breaststroke (1:15.91).
Gerardi was also part of the relay team that also featured Sara Dussault, Myah Johnson, and Martina Savova in the 200 yard medley relay. These four swam a state qualifying time of 2:01.93 and placed second in the race.
Myah Johnson swam a sectional time in the 50 free (26.48).
On the boys side, Justin Roethke swam a state time in the 200 yard IM (2:12.37) and Jake Johnson swam another state time in the 50 free (23.33). It was the second time he has clinched a state time this year in the event.
“Eli MacIver also did great,” Davies said of the eighth grader. “That was his first time swimming the 100 backstroke (1:13.25, first place finish) and he crushed it. He’s only in eighth grade so it is exciting to see where he is going to go. He’s definitely getting a lot stronger, works super hard in practice, and is just a great person to have on the team.”
The Whalers will participate in the Cape Cod Classic this weekend in Sandwich. This meet will have six teams. The Whalers next next dual meet will be Wednesday, January 11 when they host the Sandwich Blue Knights at 5 pm.
