Powers Takes Fourth in County Swim Meet


Local swimmers gathered at Fenton High School this past Friday and Saturday for the annual Genesee County Swim Meet. Powers Girls finished 4th outperforming 6 other local teams. This is always a fun meet as the Genesee County swim community cheers on friends and swimmers from neighboring schools. The Lady Chargers brought high energy and time drops. 

The Preliminary session took place Friday night. All twenty Powers swimmers participated, delivering many personal best or seasonal best swims. The Chargers added three more individual state cuts: Abby Custack (200 Free) and Emma Potochney/Sarah Murawski (100 Fly). This brought the total to six state cuts for the season. 

The top 16 swimmers in each event advanced to the Saturday Finals session. Powers brought back Seniors: Marin Custack, Grace Erpelding, Sarah Murawski, and Emma Potochney; Junior: Maggie Roche; Sophomores: Alyson Chupa, Abby Custack, Elli Lafay, and Loly Yapchai; Freshmen: Kennedi Dawkins and Sara Piper, all swimming individual events. Additionally, sophomore Meredith Wilkins swam in a relay.

The meet ended with the 400 Free Relay consisting of Loly Yapchai, Sarah Murawski, Emma Potochney, and Sarah Murawski also earning a state cut and taking fourth place.
