Event Recap:It was an early morning for the top ten varsity swimmers. The team was made up of Nastya Kolesnikova '18 (Captain) Sezer Tahiroglu '17 (Captain), Charlotte Colombo '18, Raffaella Alencar Barros '19, Paulina Torres Chavez '19, Guilherme (Nemo) de Camargo '19, Airi Barnes '20, Patryk Herok '20, Taro Tsukahara '21, and Zhantemir Sarsenov '21. Each swimmer gave his or her best and learned a lot at the first meet of the year. The relay teams provided a lot of excitement, with the boys (Tahiroglu, de Camargo, Herok, and Sarsenov) coming home with medals for their Bronze performance in the 200-meter Freestyle Relay. Herok gave the crowd lots to cheer for as he went head-to-head with his natural born enemy (his older brother), who was competing for the Leysin American School. For all of their races, they were neck and neck, with the older of the two winning by less than one second in the 100-meter IM and the 50-meter Butterfly. It was an exciting day!
