A senior, Alana Mafessoli, two sophomores, Chris Russelburg and Breanna Fressel along with freshman Andrew (Drew) Bylow are the new faces on the deck and bring a barrel full of competitive experience to the program. Each of the four are multi-sport athletes with great competitive spirit. Returning underclassmen for the Monarchs this season are sophomores Taylor Bonar and Marin Genaw along with juniors Christian Campitelle, Lily Heath, Kyra Roth and Lauren Schulte. This group makes up the main body of the team and packs a heavy dose of intensity and determination. Our five returning seniors, Riley Bonar (Captain), Thomas Day (Captain), Brendan Fix, Max Iglesias and Pratham Patel bring back with them the experience and strength of this years team. The group is certain to bring some amazing swimming to the pool deck this season. The coaching staff is looking forward to a productive season.
Results from Cabrini vs U of D Jesuit
On Thursday, January 28th Cabrini hosted U of D Jesuit for the kick off dual meet of the 2021 season. The Monarchs ran head first into the steam rolling Cubs and went down to defeat (U of D 125 Cabrini 28).
Highlights for the Monarchs were a season best swim in the 200 medley relay by the team of Drew Bylow (PR split), Thomas Day (SB split), Max Iglesias (PR split) and Lily Heath (SB split). Bylow followed that up with two second place finishes in the 200 free and 100 backstroke. Iglesias followed his medley relay swim with a PR in the 100 butterfly while Day turned in a SB split in the 200 free relay and Heath turning in a SB time in the 100 backstroke. Seniors Alana Maffesoli and Brendan Fix turned in PR swims in the 100 free and 500 free respectively. Overall after nine days of practice, the entire team swam exceedingly well considering the minimal training time available prior to the first meet. We were very pleased with the entire teams effort in our first outing.
The Monarchs next test will be on February 2nd when the team travels to Woodhaven for a dual meet with the Warriors.
