It’s been a wild, unpredictable season for the Cornwall girls’ swimming and diving team this fall.
They’re loving every second of it.
The Dragons pulled off a major surprise at the Hudson Valley Classic in early September, winning the team title by edging out teams like Kingston, Pine Bush and Washingtonville.
With the OCIAA reverting back to a 2-division format this season, the Dragons are also enjoying success among the smaller schools in Division II. Following Tuesday’s dual meet victory over Warwick, Cornwall is 6-0 in the division and 7-2 overall in dual meets.
Although they’ve put in plenty of hard work, the winning has come as a shock even to Cornwall captains Rose Foody and Kaylin Luhrs.
Check out the video above for their thoughts on the season. Be sure to pick up Thursday’s Times Herald-Record to see their story in print.
I also caught the Dragons set a new pool record in the 200 freestyle relay on Tuesday. Assistant coach John Pinckney made good on his promise to jump in the pool fully clothed if the relay team broke the record.
I talked to sophomore Alice Morgan, anchor leg on that relay, about setting a new record…and seeing her coach make a splash. Check that out at the end of the video.
