Firestone v. Solon. First meet of the season.

Firestone swimmers performed well under difficult conditions as they faced the much larger Solon team on Friday evening. The combined team scores were Solon 215 and Firestone 153 in 24 events. The girls won the day with Firestone 104 and Solon 81. Carly Chelovitz was Girls’ Swimmer of the Meet. Among the noteworthy performances was freshman Alexis Lee in her first meet for Firestone. The boys faced a tough challenge as Solon’s team was far larger than Firestone’s. They came out with 49 overall to Solon’s 134. Boys’ Swimmer of the Meet, Mark Belanger, won the Boys’ 200 Freestyle and the Boys’ 100 Backstroke.
