page8yellowthingsThis past weekend, February 13th thru 15th, Arcadia’s Men’s and Women’s swim teams participated in the 2009 Middle Atlantic Conference Swim Championships. The conference, which was held at the Wyoming Valley Catholic Youth Center, included rival teams from across the area, including Kings, Albright, and Lebanon Valley Colleges.

Leading AU’s Men’s team was senior John Konieczny, who placed 14th in the 200 meter Breast Stroke.  In addition to Konieczny, who shaved close to 7 seconds off his qualifying time, was fellow swimmer Steve Haasis, who also beat his best time by 7 seconds for the 200 meter backstroke. By far, however, the most impressive personal time was that of Jason Sharpe, who improved his qualifying time by 11 seconds in the 200 meter butterfly.

Arcadia’s Women’s team also proved successful over this past weekend, with Kayla Kroll placing 19th in the 200 meter Womens Butterfly, as well as Stephanie Bartolotta, who hit a personal best of  2:51:       34 in the 100 meter breaststroke.

A congratulations to all swimmers, both men’s and women’s, as well as to head coach Stephen Rote, on a job well done during this year’s conference and a great overall season this year.
