This past weekend’s IAAM Swim Championships at McDonogh ended with another crushing defeat by the NDP Varsity Swim Team. NDP blew away all of the other competition, gathering over one hundred more points than the 2nd place team, McDonogh. It was just two years ago that NDP was devastated after losing by only a few points to McDonogh at the 2010 Championships, but those days are just a distant memory now. Sophomores Kendall Krumenacker and Dani Potis led the Blazers to victory. Krumenacker set a meet record in the 100 yard backstroke (57.04), while Potis set a meet record in the 200 free (1:51.84). NDP won each relay, setting a meet record in the 200 medley, and only a short amount away from the record in the 200 free and the 400 free relays.
The incredible team spirit of NDP was evident at the championships, with outfits consisting of face paint, tattoos and glitter in the hair. During every race the cheers from the 42 members of the team could be heard throughout the pool deck, and everyone supported one another no matter how their swims went. It was a great way to finish off an already spectacular season, and the Blazers are looking forward to another exciting year starting in November!
