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.
