[Rye, NY – March 28, 2013] The Rye Y Wave Ryeders ended the season as Westchester-Fairfield League Champions (March3) for the 8th consecutive year. At the New York State YMCA Championships in Ithaca, March 15-17, the Wave Ryeders placed tenth overall and brought home several trophies. Rowan Haffner, age 8, won a first place championship, the “8 and under” and “10 and unde”r boys teams placed second and the “8 and under” girls team placed third.
“I am so proud of the Wave Ryeders’ teamwork this year,” said Coach Kate Tiedemann. “They turned the disappointment of losing a dual meet against New Rochelle into a victory at the Leagues and a strong performance at States.”
The goal of the Wave Ryeders program is to promote fun, camaraderie, new friendships, new skills, physical fitness and positive values that extend beyond the swimming environment. The Rye YMCA offers both a Spring and Fall swim team. The Spring swim team tryouts are April 2, 3 and 4 from 6-7 pm with practice running from April 15 to June 6. Pre-team is also available for swimmers not yet ready for competition. Please visit www.ryeymca.org and view the program guide (page 21) for details. Please contact Vickie Kourtelis, Aquatics Director at 914-967-6363, extension 107, for information on the swim team or any other aquatics program.
