NENEAPC Sectionals – 2nd Place Finish!
January 27th & January 28th was an exciting weekend for Lucky’s Lobsters Swim Team! More than 100 swimmers participated in the 2017-2018 NENEAPC Sectionals Swim Meet at the Boys & Girls Club of Worcester. The Club’s swimmers were excited and their performance demonstrated both their motivation and their skill. Many Club members swam to their personal best records, won their heats, and earned many first place event finishes.
Overall, the group earned 2nd Place in Division 1. Additionally, the 11-12 girls from the Jamie McKeown Boys & Girls Club took home the trophy for first place for their age group. Many of the other age groups came is as Division 1 runner ups. Overall it was a tremendous success and everyone at the Club is very proud of each swimmer who showed their best efforts and amazing sportsmanship.
Lucky’s Lobsters is coached by Anthony Fiore, Casey Cullinane, Jill Branley, Matt Perry, Sam Flecchia and Kathryn O’Brien. The staff at the Club would also like to give a special shout out to the parent volunteers that donated their time at the Sectionals Swim Meet with the ribbons, timing, and officiating.
