This year’s varsity swim season was one for the record books.

On May 5, the undefeated Archer varsity swim team won their third consecutive Liberty League Championship.

“It feels so incredible,” swimmer Claire Bardin ’18 said after the meet. “I am in shock right now.”

The team is captioned by Mari Goldberg ’17, who has been on the team since seventh grade, and senior Kaia Turowski ’17, who joined in tenth grade.

“I am going to miss [the seniors] so much next year,” Bardin said. “They were such good captains and have supported us through everything.”

In addition to winning the league, four of the swimmers continued their season with a trip to CIF. At the CIF-SS Division 4 finals meet on May 12, Archer placed ninth overall.

Saskia Wong-Smith ’18 placed third in the 100 meter butterfly and sixth in the 200 meter individual medley. Summer de Vera ’18 also medaled, placing sixth in the 100 meter breaststroke.

“It was so much fun, and it was really nice going to Riverside and sleeping over there,” Wong-Smith said. “Now I have a special bond with the other girls who made it to CIFs.”

Relays consisting of Claire Bardin ’18, de Vera ’18, Hannah Park ’19 and Wong-Smith ’18 placed ninth in the 200 meter medley relay and eighth in the 400 meter free relay.

“The Archer swim team this season was the closest it has ever been,” Goldberg said. “I’m really going to miss my big, crazy swim family.”
