PEMBERTON >> Jordan DeAngelo won two events and swam on the winning 200 medley relay as visiting Washington Township (1-0, 1-0) opened the season with a narrow 88-82 win over Seneca (0-1, 0-1) in a South Jersey League Baltic Division meet Dec. 3 at Rowan College at Burlington County here.
“I was extremely proud of how well our girls did (against Washington Township),” said Seneca coach Bonnie Horner. “We had a close meet and 11 qualifications for the SJISA Coaches Invitational. Ally Evans in 200 free and 100 back, Lizzy Stevenson in 200 IM and 500 free and 100 free (relay start), Abbey Miskiewicz in 100 fly and 100 breast, Cassidy Strittmatter in 50 and 100 free, Tess Strittmatter in 50 free and Lara Narkiewicz in 100 fly.
"We had 14 best times/splits from previous swimmers and 24 new times/splits on our newcomers. Our team has been building in the past three years led by our four senior captains - the ‘A Team’ - Alyssa Andrews, Alivia Chaloupka, Abrielle Martinez and Abbey Miskiewicz. We have a strong group of swimmers who have only just began their swimming experience when they joined Seneca swimming. We are off to a great start this year that is willing to be competitive within our division and exciting to watch.”
