The North High School Girls Varsity Swim team defeated Carle Place-Locust Valley on Oct. 19 to win the Conference IV Championship title. The team finished the regular season with a 6–1 record overall, going undefeated within the Conference.
“We are so proud of the work this team put in throughout the season,” said Paul Rodriguez, head coach and business education teacher at North High. “It’s not easy to win a Conference Championship, but these girls stuck together and earned it.”
The Blazers started their swim season with a tough loss to Conference III champions Jericho, but the team never gave up. They won the next five meets in a row, which set up a match with Carle Place-Locust Valley for the Conference Championship. Like North High, the Carle Place-Locust Valley team had only one loss during the regular season.
The high-stakes matchup against Carle Place-Locust Valley was extra special for the Blazers, as it was the team’s Senior Meet. The girls took a 41–21 lead through the first four events and never looked back—ultimately winning 91–74.
The North High Girls Varsity Swim Team will advance to the postseason, which includes Division and County Meets at the Nassau County Aquatic Center.
