2014 Chabot Marlins Swim Team

 

08132014AOTW

 

The Chabot Marlins Swim Team completed a tremendous 2014 season with a 4th place finish out of 12 teams at the East Bay Swim League Championships on July 26 at Chabot College.

Led by CVHS head coach and former Marlins swimmer Brian Berry and assistants Megan Mulready and Jason Corbett, the Marlins scored 3,620 points in the meet, a record high for the program. It was truly a team effort for the Marlins, with six different age-groups medaling in relay events.

The 8 and Under Boys Medley Relay (Colton Downing, Gavin Willits, Matthew Jewell, and Colby Vik) scored the first Marlins gold medal of the meet, winning by 0.04 seconds.

In the Freestyle Relays, there were four consecutive gold medal swims. Finishing first in the 9-10 Boys FR (Nathan Arakawa, Sam D’Antonio, Kai Ford, Joey Molettieri), 11-12 Girls FR (Hannah Severs, Analise Wehner, Elma Sabanovic, Nadia Jamal), 11-12 Boys FR ( Carson Naas, Andy Jerome, Tommy Ryken, Diego Agron), and 13-14 Girls FR (Kat Averill, Francesca Kaser, Valerie Naas, and Jenevieve Garcia).  The 15-18 Girls (Megan Wallace, Correll Maley, Mara Sleeter, Olivia Wallace) capped the relay medals with a bronze third place finish.

Top Individual Medalists for the Marlins were led by triple-medalist Luke Severs, placing first in the 13-14 boys Free, third in the Back Stroke, and second in the I.M. Five Marlins were double-medalists, Nadia Jamal in the 11-12 Girls Free (second) and Fly (second), Diego Agron in the 11-12 Boys Back (second) and Fly (third), Kat Averill in the 13-14 Girls Back (first) and I.M. (third), Valerie Naas in the 13-14 Girls Back (third) and Breast (third), and Olivia Wallace in the 15-18 Girls Breast (third) and I.M. (first).

Individual medals were earned by Tommy Ryken in the 11-12 Boys Fly (second), Joey Molettieri in the 9-10 Boys Free (second), Sally Jewell in the 9-10 Girls Free (third), and Allison Mitchell in the 7-8 Girls Free (third).

Overall, Marlins swimmers set 11 top team times, and had 173 personal best swims to end the 2014 season strong, and have the Marlins poised for an even faster 2015 season.
