Champs Results for Boys Swimming

Reece Whitley's skills are so well respected in the swimming community, on Wednesday the public address announcer at Malvern Prep kept referring to him as "Reece the Beast."


In the Inter-Ac championships, Penn Charter's outstanding junior captured firsts in two individual events and was part of relays that finished second and seventh.

Whitley's top performance was posted in the 100 breaststroke. His winning time of 55.59 broke the pool record by roughly 1 1/2 seconds. He also won the 100 butterfly in 51.81, ninth-10ths of a second better than the runnerup.

The 200 medley relay clocked 1:38.96 for second and the four participants, in order, were senior Evan McFadden, Whitley, frosh Lance Rainer and junior Andrew Morris. (Pictured above, Rainer, Morris, Whitley, McFadden.) In the 200 freestyle relay, Whitley, senior Brendan "Chooch" Cellucci, Rainer and Morris placed seventh in 1:33.51.

The other relay (400 freestyle) placed fifth in 3:33.26 thanks to freshman Zion Weeks, senior Emmet Foley, frosh Cooper Berkoff and McFadden.

In other individual events, Weeks earned second in the 200 freestyle (1:50.85) and McFadden was fourth in the 200 individual medley (2:00.61).
