Smiles & Personal Bests for MHS Girls Swim at Leagues

The Milford High School girls' swim team put together a string of top individual performances at the Hockomock League meet en route to a seventh-place finish and a memorable day in the pool.
"It was an unbelievable day for the girls, every single kid swam a personal
best and we had state qualifying times across the board," said head coach David Chaplin. "It wasn't a big day for scoring, it was a day for smiles and tears through because they swam their best races, kid after kid."
Milford did score its share of points. The medley relay tea of Kim Stochaj, Victoria Monica, Eva Parsons and Michaela Blackwell placed fourth. Three members of that group, Stochaj, Parsons and Blackwell joined Kate Donahue for a fourth place finish in the freestyle relay.
Parsons anchored the freestyle relay, part of a strong individual day. She made the sectional and state qualifying cut in the 100-yard butterfly and swam to a third- place finish with a time of 1:03.63. Chaplin said the time was a three-second drop from her previous personal best.
"She touched the wall, looked over her shoulder at the clock, and when the time came up she just had the biggest smile and started bawling," he said. "So much effort went into that race."
Parsons capped her day by finishing seventh in the individual medley with yet another personal best time.
Stochaj placed ninth in the 200 freestyle, winning her heat from lane one, which usually is where swimmer with slower seed times are placed. Blackwell earned a seventh-place finish in the 100 freestyle and checked in 10th in the sprint freestyle race. In addition to her work with the 400 freestyle team, Donahue, one of the team captains, scored in the 500 freestyle with a 16th-place finish.
Senior captain Piper Terrill posted her top times in her individual events and anchored the 200 freestyle relay with her first ever sub-30 second split. Junior Paige Reisman broke the seven-minute mark in the 500 freestyle and Chaplin said that, judging by her reaction, "you would think she touched the wall in Beijing and was getting a gold medal."
"The kids did a great job," Chaplin said. "This can be a difficult meet, but between Donahue and Terrill, they inspired the kids at the top who were scoring the points and that's the thing we are going t carry into next year. This is a group that's going to battle at the top."
