Congratulations go to the 2012 Mendham Swim Team! Coached by Caitlyn Eskeland and Abby Emerson! In August, the team sent 10 swimmers to complete in the New Jersey Regional Lake League Trials and Finals. Despite Mendham being one of the smaller teams, the results were impressive! Not only did 4 swimmers qualify to return for the Finals placing in the top eight, but every swimmer saw significant improvements in their times in more than one event. There was much to celebrate at the team’s end –of-the season pasta dinner and much to look forward to for next season. A big thanks to our terrific coaches, Caitlyn and Abby and to the many parent volunteers who contributed to another wonderful season!
