  Mystic Valley Regional Charter School (MVRCS) girls and boys swim hosted Blue Hills Regional Technical School on Friday afternoon (Jan. 13). After competing just two days prior against Innovation/Nashoba/Lowell Catholic, the Eagles were able to get team wins on both the boys’ and girls’ sides, with a final score of 86-71.

  “The swimmers…baffle me each meet with their improvements and time drops,” said Head Coach Andrew DiGiacomo. “We have a huge meet this Monday against Wayland, Triton, and Nantucket which we hope will catapult us into the championship season. It is exciting to see the contributions from the younger swimmers on both the boys’ and girls’ sides.”

  For the boy’s team, Aiden Acuna Rosa continued to lead the team, as he took first place in both the 100 Free and 500 Free, clocking in times of 49.02 and 5:16.30, respectively. Jaden Anthony had a historic victory in the 500 Free, as he would finish on Rosa’s heels with a state cut time of 5:18.82. The effort by Anthony earned him a top fifth swim in MV history. Other event winners included Jeremy Cheng, Dylan Phan, Lucas Freitas and Kevin Sodeyama Cardoso in the 200 Free Relay (1:37.96), Anthony in the 50 Free (24.49), Sodeyama Cardoso in the 100 Fly (58.85) and Jason Yan in the 100 Back (58.82.).

  For the girls, Isabella Cirame continues to shine, as she swam a lifetime best of 1:07.02 in the 100 Back. Khloe Co was also able to secure a lifetime best, as she clocked in at 1:08.09 in the 100 Fly. Britney Nayiga placed fifth in the 100 Free, but her time of 58.76 was another sectional cut for the girls’ team. To this point, the girls have more sectional and state cuts than any girls’ team in history. Other event highlights for the girls included the 400 Free Relay team of Lana Albuquerque, Nayiga, Lucia Antonucci and Cirame taking second place with a time of 4:09.84.
