Eels start swim season

Well over 2,000 swimmers from 23 swim clubs representing the Rappahannock Swim league took part in opening day exhibition meets last Wednesday in the Fredericksburg metropolitan area.
While the meets will serve as a litmus test for each respective team’s ability to prepare for the regular summer swim season, the Eden Estate Eels enjoyed a fun-filled competitive day, while producing standout individual triple win performances — and a number of first place finishes.
During the meet at Regency Park, Eel co-head coach Curt Albert recorded triple wins in the 50-yard butterfly, 50-yard backstroke and the 100-yard IM. Albert’s 14-year-old teammate Scott Loudin also had a big day in the water, with victories in the 25-yard freestyle, 25-yard butterfly and the 25-yard backstroke.

During the boys 11-12 year old 100-yard freestyle relay, the Eels finished first with the team featuring Luca Augusti, Blue Burgess, Stephen Hunt and Sam Larsen. The team of Bennet Morrow, James Morrow, Curt Albert and Joel Morrisett finished first in the boys 15-18 100-yard freestyle relay.
Giovanni Augusti finished first in the boys 8 and under 25-yard freestyle event. Augusti also placed first in the 25-yard breaststroke. Stephen finished first in the boys 11-12 year old 50-yard breaststroke. The team of Curt Albert, Scott Loudin, Joel Morrisett and Bennett Morrow placed first in the boys 13-18 year old 100-yard medley relay.
Katie Barnum finished first in the girls 13-14 year old 50-yard freestyle. Amy Howell placed first in event 33 of the girls 13-14 50-yard butterfly. Ten-year-old Liv Martin swam to first place in the girls’ 9-10 year old 25-yard backstroke.
On Wednesday, June 30, the Eels swim at home against Lake of the Woods.  Stop by the Eden Estates pool and see the young swimmers in action.  All meets start at 6 p.m. and last approximately four hours.  The meets are open to the public with no admission fee and food is available for purchase.
