Four members of the Phoenixville YMCA's Blue Waves swim team are looking forward to the Y's District championships on March 13 after a pair of record breaking performances at the annual Maryland Winterfest Invitational, a regional meet that was held Jan. 16-17 at the University of Maryland.
The Phoenixville foursome of Emma Seiberlich of Audubon, Maddie Cooke of Phoenixville, Morgan Hansen of Spring City and Olivia Giampetro of Phoenixville set a YMCA national record in winning the 200-yard medley relay in 2 minutes, 3.91 seconds. Seiberlich swam the opening backstroke leg, Cooke the breaststroke, Hansen the butterfly and Giampetro the freestyle in the 10-and-under bracket. The old record of 2:05.06, set by a team from McKinley, Ill., had stood since 1981.
