The Sarah Lawrence College swim team capped off a successful season by winning the 2011 Hudson Valley Women’s Athletic Conference Swimming Invitational. The team finished the season with a 9-3 record and an undefeated record in the conference

Team members Catherine Griffin ’11, Elizabeth Brandli ’12, Suzie Elliot Bearce ’13, and Lucy Madden Lunsford ’13 were named to the All Conference Team. Led by captain Abby Udden ’11, the team captured many “Swimmer of the Week” and “Rookie of the Week” honors throughout the season.

“Winning the conference tournament is a result of all the hard work my team has put in this season and I extremely proud of our athletes” said head swim coach Sandra Clarke.

In addition to their hard work practicing and competing this season, the Sarah Lawrence Swim Team found time to mentor The Shark Swim Club, which trains more than two dozen swimmers in competitive swimming in preparation for the Special Olympics. The Shark Swim Club trains at the SLC pool.
