Wedgewood Takes Back the Tri-County Title

After a successful season of 4-1 in the A Division, Wedgewood sent 100 qualifiers to compete in a 2 day meet at Brookside Swim Club to swim against the other 34 pools in the Tri-County area. After Saturday’s preliminaries, Wedgewood headed into Sunday ready to take back the title we held in 2015-16, but lost to Pomona in 2017. Our swimmers swam their hearts out and broke the most Tri-County and Wedgewood Records in any single meet; some of these records had been held for nearly 20 years!  See below for the list of record breakers.  We also got some good press – take a look at the article from NJ.com

We ended the weekend with a celebration back at the pool with a big round of Greasy Goose, a fun tradition, ribbon and medal ceremony, dinner and cake! Thanks to our coaching staff, Head Coach Jim Villa, and Assistant coaches: Will Freeman, Elizabeth Kolaski and Hannah Roche, for another great season!
