They saved their best for last. After a slow start in the early part of the Rappahannock Swim League (RSL) American Division Finals, the Eden Estate Eels rallied to win the first ever RSL finals meet at the King George YMCA.
The history-making event took place on Saturday, July 29, throughout the early morning and afternoon. With nearly 1,200 people covering every part of the YMCA facility, it is abundantly clear that the sport of swimming is stronger than ever.
The Eels capitalized on personal time improvements and the final’s three-division format to upset the field of six teams. The format allows 600 swimmers to compete on a scaled based on parity and entry times, where the slowest swimmer never swims against the fastest swimmer. Also, the format allows more swimmers to earn awards.


The Eels earned 698.5 points to defeat Ferry Farms (671.5), Lake of the Woods (670), Lee’s Hill (636.5), Fredericksburg Country Club (594.5) and Fox Point (593). The last time the Eels won the finals was in 1999, and interestingly enough, the Eels posted a 0-5 record in their division during the season. The Eels did win one non-conference meet during the season.
A special thanks from the Eels coaching staff to King George YMCA executive director Elizabeth Clark and her staff for the hospitality shown to all the RSL American Division swim teams for the use of their facilities and for making the championship finals a success.
David Hunt was the lone triple winner for the Eels during the finals in the 50-meter freestyle, 50-meter backstroke and 50-meter breaststroke. Joel T. Morrisett was a double winner for the Eels in the 100-meter freestyle and 50-meter freestyle.
In light of the efforts of head coach Adam Taylor and his cast of assistants, Curt Albert, Emily Jones, Katie Taylor, the Eels swim team has become a true force in club swimming throughout the Fredericksburg area.

 

Single first place Eel winners are as follows:
Graham Darcey (25-meter backstroke); Luca Augusti (25-meter backstroke); Jessie Amos (100-meter backstroke); Richie Howell (100-meter freestyle); Luke Barnum (50-meter freestyle); Stephen Thorsted (25-meter freestyle); Giovanni Augusti (25-meter butterfly); Heather Albert (25-meter backstroke); Stephen Hunt (25-meter backstroke); Bryan C. Yanchulis (50-meter freestyle); John Lilly (50-meter butterfly); Sam Lilly (50-meter butterfly); Kraig Johnson (50-meter backstroke); Kelsey Johnson (50-meter backstroke); Scott Loudin (50-meter backstroke); Michael McGregor (50-meter breaststroke); Sam Larsen (50-meter breaststroke); Claire Larsen (50-meter backstroke).
