Records for Whitley, Wins for Girls Swimming

Question: Is there ever a time when Penn Charter senior Reece Whitley fails to turn heads in a swim meet?

Answer: Never, ever.

In a team loss at powerful Haverford School on Tuesday, Whitley broke TWO short course meters national records. (Short course means the pool is 25 meters in length; long course means 50. Those times are still undergoing the usual process for confirming national records.)

In the 200 individual medley, Reece, shown above in a previous meet, clocked 2:01.50 to smash the mark by almost four seconds. His time in the 100 breaststroke was 1:01.40. He lowered that standard by 1.23 seconds.

Also faring well for PC were Zion Weeks (200 free, 100 fly) and newcomer Luke Brogan (50/100 free).

Girls swimming traveled to Agnes Irwin and came home quite happy, thanks to a 116-64 victory that featured wins in all but two events.

The 200 medley relay got things started in splendid fashion. That youthful quartet included eighth grader Lane Murray, sophs Sally Foley/Sam Boyes and ninth grader Camille Weiss. Boyes was part of two other winning relays. Foley, Weiss, soph Gabby Lopez-Ona and senior Madison Freeland bagged two relay wins apiece while Foley was quite impressive in the 400 freestyle, winning the event from lane six.
