ENDWELL – The Norwich Purple Tornado girls varsity swim team headed back to the pool on Saturday April 24th and capped off a stellar ‘Fall 2’ sports season with a strong third place finish at the Section IV Class B Championships on. With a combined 130 seconds worth personal best times recorded on Saturday, the Purple Tornado peaked at the right time.
Norwich scored 313 points in their third place finish, with Chenango Valley scoring 458 for second place and host Maine-Endwell claiming the top spot with 491 points.
“These girls keep climbing the sectional ranks year after year after year without divers” said Norwich head coach Saundra Gantt on her team’s performance.
“Our six senior girls were great leaders to our younger team. Two of those seniors were first year swimmers. We moved a whole modified team of girls up which included a 7th grader and four 8th graders.”
“It was a great season. 34 days of training without meets” added Gantt on the condensed ‘Fall 2’ sports season.
“The girls made the best of it. They worked hard, they swam very well all season.”
