Eels start summer with a blast

Now that the summer Rappahannock Swim League summer season is officially underway, it’s every team for itself. Last Wednesday during the seasonal exhibition meets, the Eden Estate Eels overpowered Spotsylvania YMCA with dominating performance. Out of 66 events, the Eels produced 35 individual wins and 10 relay victories.

As for the visiting Spotsylvania team, it managed 16 individual victories and five relay wins.

Although the meet did not count in the dual regular season statistics, coaches from both teams took full advantage of the opportunity to assess their teams’ strengths and weaknesses.


Emma Parker, Heather Albert, Rachael Webb, Stephen Hunt, Heather Jones and Joel Morrissett recorded triple wins, while teammates’ E.C. Indseth, Moriah Foringer, Matthew Marshall, and David Hunt finished the meet with double victories.

Other Eels who contributed first place victories were as follows: Stephen Hunt, Coriniya Pardee, Courtney Gabe, Nathan Rongey, Natalie Pelto, Amy Howell, Sam Larsen, Kaylin McKay, Em E. Martin, Sophie Martin and Jacob Cullin.

The lone triple winner for Spotsylvania was Gordon Alexander, while Ben Ransom, and Mako Mendoza produced double victories.

Other first place Spotsylvania winners included: Abigale Cook, Jessica Buhle, Kaylin McKay, Autumn Delellis, Logan Euker, Eric Smith and Joshua Ransom.

On Wednesday, June 29, all swim meets will count toward a potential regular season divisional championship. The Eels will host new RSL member and National rival Hopyard. On July 7, the Eels will travel to Leeland Station. The Eels’ next home meet will be against Salem Fields. All meets start at 6 p.m.
Elsewhere in the RSL, during a meet against the Dahlgren Sharks, Massad YMCA’s 6-year-old swimmer Makayla Williams established a new league meter record for event 15, girls 6 and under 25-meter freestyle at 20.32 seconds. Previously, the record was held by Keri Bumgarner of Hampton Oaks during the 2003 summer swim season.
