deMarrais and Hepburn Set Personal Bests
Lawson Sets School Record in the 100 at Meet of Champions

Mary deMarrais and Jamie Hepburn both posted personal best performances at the Meet of Champions on March 3 and 4 at the Gloucester Institute of Technology.  Jamie lowered  her top 5 time in the 500 to a very strong 5:20.95 which placed her 17th (top 16 make All-State).  Mary had a fantastic showing, as she finished with two 10th place finishes in the 200 (1:57.88) and the 500 (5:13.49), earning her All-State honors.  Her time in the 200 moves her to the number 3 all-time spot for Bernards, surpassing sister Grace, who swam a 1:57.99 in 2003. Grace still holds the number 3 spot in the 500 as Mary lowered her number 4 time to within 2.1 seconds of Grace's time.

Brendan Lawson shattered Scott Armstrong's 9 year old 100 free record or 49.14 with a blistering 48.72 as he also earned All-State honors with his 10th place finish at the Meet of Champions.  Brendan also placed 15th in the 50 with a 22.62 (22.51 in prelims).  This was a very strong showing for the three Bernards swimmers who qualified for this prestigious meet.
