The Holy Trinity swimming team finished off a successful season at the
Class 1A state meet at the Sailfish Splash Waterpark and Aquatics
Center in Stuart on Sunday.
Sophomore Elle Jacobsen placed 11th in the girls one-meter diving
Eighth-grader Natalie Doig qualified for the B final and finished 14th in
the 100 freestyle with a time of 55:02.
Senior James Lacey swam in the 50 free and junior Alex Spies took part
in the 200 IM and the 500 free, but neither made the finals.
Still, just getting to the state meet was a big accomplishment for all four
seniors, especially in a shortened season altered by COVID-19.
This season also saw three school records fall as Jacobsen, Lacey and
Spies (500 free) all set new marks in their respective events.
The Class 1A state final had originally been scheduled to take place on
Friday, but was moved to Sunday because of the threat of Eta, which hit
Florida as a tropical storm last Thursday.
“They all tried their hardest,” Holy Trinity coach Tiffany DeAngelis
wrote in an email. “It’s been a whirlwind of a season and, overall, just
really proud of each and every one of the swimming and dive team.”
