[RYE, March 31, 2016] The Rye YMCA WaveRyeders swim team finished another winning season, capturing the Westchester-Fairfield League Championship and bringing home several first place trophies at the YMCA State Championships in Buffalo, New York on March 18-20. Both the 8-and-under girls team and 8-and-under boys team won the overall team awards and the relays in their age groups.
In addition, there were some outstanding individual achievements. Ethan Zhou broke a 30-year-old record and is now a 3-time champion; Megan Tiedemann is 2-time champion and Mauve Bruton and Sofia Lord are new champions. “Our swimmers had many best times and personal best swims,” said Coach Kate Tiedemann. “I can’t wait to see what the next season brings!”
