Kicking off the season, SEM swimming, lead by captains Brigid Navagh ’19 and Katie Nebbia ’19, have put in long hours of hard work to make this year its best. On September 19, the team had their very first meet against Nardin Academy.  Sophomore swimmer Katie Garis explained the course of events. “We took a hard loss, but many of us gained our personal best in time, which is something to celebrate,” she said. The team has a lot of expectations for this season with sophomore Mick Tesluk. She finished first in both the 500 free and 200 IM.



Senior Captain Katie Kraft

SEM crew is back on the grind for what will hopefully be a victorious season. The fate of the team falls into the hands of captains Katie Kraft ’18 and Maggie Rose Bontempo ’18. The team participated in their first race – the Five Bridge Classic, on September 23, in Welland, Ontario. Although they were unsuccessful in bringing back a win this time, they are hopeful for victory in the following races and for the rest of the season. Junior Anya Casey said “The team is working really hard this year and the novice rowers (beginners) are improving quickly.”

Mick Tesluck ’20



The SEM 2017 fall sports hope to make a splash this year. “Swimming has a lot of strong returning sophomore this year, specifically Mick Tesluck. Crew is a young team working really hard to build up the program more and get ready for their regatta in Saratoga this year,” said Assistant Athletic Director Kacie Mills.
