Eden Estate Eels place second in the Nationals finals

They pushed the top Nationals team to the limit! On Saturday morning, at Regency Pool, in Fredericksburg, life in the fast lanes of aquatic competition became the venue for champions and potential future champions.

After a three-way second place in the Rappahannock Swim League National’s Division, the Eden Estate Eels (853) pulled out a second place finish, trailing the finals winner, Lake of the Woods (883), by 27 points. Last year, the Eels finished third in the finals, while Salem Fields won the championship with 866.5 points. Salem Field is now a member of the American Division. The meet was close, as the top two teams were nearly equal in first place finishes; Lake of the Woods (36 first place swimmers), Eden Estates (33 first place swimmers).

Eels finals triple winners included: Nate Wilson, age 13, 100-yard IM, 1:01.23, 50-yard butterfly, 27.03, 50-yard breaststroke, 31.57; Brian Lilly, age 13, 100-yard IM, 1:18.01, 50-yard freestyle, 29.63, 50-yard butterfly, 34.1.

With over 130 swimmers progressively improving with personal-best time results, the Eels will be a stronger team next season, as younger swimmers move up in age classes.

Eels who finished first in their swim categories included: Julia Foringer, girls 6 & under, 25-yard freestyle, 21.84, A-Division; Kate Billingsley, girls 6 & under, 25-yard freestyle, 22.24, B-Division; Jeremy Clarke, boys 8 & under, 25-yard freestyle, 22.46, B-Division; Braden Clatterbuck, boys 8 & under, 25-yard butterfly, 28.73, B-Division; Kaylee Lusk, girls 9-10, 25-yard butterfly, 24.03, C-Division; Corinna Pardee, girls 8 & under, 25-yard backstroke, 28.69, B-Division; Braden Clatterbuck, boys 8 & under, 25-yard breaststroke, 28.28, A-Division; Jeremy Clarke, boys 25-yard breaststroke, 31.47, C-Division; Kamron Johnson, boys 9-10, 25-yard breaststroke, 27.73, C-Division; Girls 8 & under, 100-yard freestyle relay, Eels, 1:34.84, C-Division; Sarah Leonard, girls 12 & under, 100-yard IM, 1:27.83, B-Division; Safire Clarke, girls 12 & under 100-yard IM, 1:37.44, C-Division; Heather Albert, girls 13-18, 100-yard IM, 1:11.47, A-Division; Peyton Clatterbuck, girls 13-18 100-yard IM, 1:19.50, B-Division; boys 12 & under, Eels, 100-yard medley relay, 1:07.65; Eels, boys 13-18 100-yard medley relay, 53.71; Brian Lilly, boys 12 & under, 100-yard freestyle, 1:02.84, A-Division; Benjamin Foringer, 12 & under, 100-yard freestyle, 1:17.82, B-Division; Scott Loudin, boys 13-18, 100-yard freestyle, 1:01.74, B-Division; JC Sevart, boys 13-18, 100-yard freestyle, 1:02.94, C-Division; Heather Albert, girls 13-14, 50-yard freestyle, 28.83, A-Division; Kelsey Sevart, girls 13-14, 50-yard freestyle, B-Division; Katie Barnum, girls 15-18, 50-yard freestyle, 27.85; Billy Owen, boys 15-18, 50-yard freestyle, 24.37, A-Division; Taylor Courtney, boys 15-18, 50-yard freestyle, 28.53, C-Division; Brian Lilly, boys 11-12, 50-yard butterfly, 31.18, A-Division; Nathan Rongey, boys 13-14, 50-yard butterfly, 32.09, C-Division; Katie Barnum, girls 15-18, 50-yard butterfly, 30.70; Kimi Howell, girls 15-18, 50-yard butterfly, 34.56, B-Division; Brian Lilly, boys 11-12, 50-yard backstroke, 32.14, A-Division; Liv Martin, girls 13-14, 50-yard backstroke, 33.80, A-Division; Samantha Tubbs, girls 13-14, 50-yard backstroke, 31.03; Nathan Rongey, boys 13-14, 50-yard backstroke, 34.34, B-Division; Graham Darcy, girls 13-14, 50-yard backstroke, 41.16, C-Division; David Hunt, boys 1518, 50-yard backstroke, 27.97, A-Division; Karsyn Newton, girls 11-12, 50-yard breaststroke, 43.99, B-Division; Liv Martin, girls 13-14, 50-yard breaststroke, 43.21, C-Division; Jesse Jone, girls 15-18, 50-yard breaststroke, 44.73, C-Division; David Hunt, boys 15-18, 50-yard breaststroke, 31.97, A-Division; Eels, girls 13-14, 100-yard freestyle, 56.37; Eels, boys 15-18, 100-yard freestyle, 46.37.
