Mason Swimmers Deliver Double Wins

Senior captain Kelley Frank broke the 200-yard freestyle record by just over two seconds as the George Mason  High School girls’ swim team rolled in its final home meet of the year Friday, besting AA Dulles District opponent Park View 128-35.

The Mustangs boys team also tasted victory Friday, winning 112-58.

Dual individual winners for the meet included junior Will Doty, who won the 50-yard freestyle by nearly three seconds and the 500-yard free by well over one minute. Senior captain Sam Parker won the 100-yard breaststroke and the 200-yard individual medley as the Mustangs captured first in all but one event.

On the girls’ side, the 200-yard medley relay of Frank and sophomores Gen Jordan, Carolyn Schmitt and Leah Thirkill put on a dominating performance, winning by 10 seconds. In addition to winning the 100-yard butterfly, Jordan was part of three victorious relays.

The Mustangs will next enter the pool on Saturday in a district matchup on the road with Freedom High School at Claude Moore, the site of the Dulles District Championships, held on Feb. 5.
