Catherine Skoda Breaks School Record in 100 Back at New Jersey Meet of Champions

Catherine Skoda placed 9th in the 100 backstroke at the Meet of Champions on March 3, setting a new school record with a time of 59.52.  Her time was the 4th fastest time in the finals, but she could only place as high as 9th since she was in the consolation finals.  Catherine had a great meet, as she also made the finals of the 100 free, placing 7th, with a time of 55.20 (55.02 in the prelims).

Both relays returned for the finals as well.  In the 200 medley relay, Catherine, Grace deMarrais, Nori Skoda, and Rachel Quis swam a 1:57.19, which placed 13th, and was good enough to make the Bernards all-time Top 5.  The same foursome placed 19th in the 400 free relay, with a 3:52.30, which was the 4th fastest time in BHS history.  All four girls earned NISCA All-State (top 16) honors.

Grace deMarrais also placed 19th in the 200 free and 20th in the 500 free, and Nori Skoda finished 23rd and 22nd in the 100 fly and 100 breast, respectively.
