PHS goes to great lengths in pool

PLATTSBURGH — The Plattsburgh High School Hornets once again appear to be in a class by themselves as they get ready to defend their Champlain Valley Athletic Conference and Section VII titles in girls’ swimming.

The Hornets put on a stellar performance Friday in the annual Preseason Open at Plattsburgh State. The Kelley sisters — junior Alexis and freshman Brooke — led the PHS wave with four first-place finishes each. Kelly Davey and Amanda Leonard were triple-winners while Kelsey Primard doubled for the Orange and Black.

TEAM PREVIEWS

AUSABLE VALLEY

Team captains Tonie Cross and Haley Sprague are the Patriots’ center point of strength and leadership.

Lydia Brown and Emily McCormick finished very strong last year for AuSable Valley (4-2), with McCormick making it to the state championship in the 200 and 500 freestyle. It is likely Brown and McCormick will be the team’s points leaders this year.

The Patriots are looking for returning swimmers Jasmaine Hall, Taylor Lincoln Leigh-Ann Wenzel, Emily Wood and Megan Zmijewski to step up as juniors and seniors, and lead the way for newcomers Erin Butler, Brianna Drake, Alysa Miller, Julianna Manning and Nicole SantaMaria.
