Andrew and Jacob Hathaway, Ben and Lucas Starling and Jamin and Greyson Howe are part of Lex's member contingent 10 boys, 6 girls competing in this week's state swimming and diving meet at Canton's C. Branin Natatorium. The diving is Wednesday with the swimming prelims on Thursday. The top 16 in each race, individuals and relays, will return Friday for the "A" and "B" finals.
It helps having younger siblings because they learn everything. The Hathaways are swimming together in the medley relay, with Jacob, a sophomore, doing the backstroke and Andrew swimming freestyle. Jacob is also on the free relay, while Andrew is on the free relay.
Individually, Andrew is in the free, while Jacob, a quadruple qualifier, is also in the free and back. The Starlings started swimming at the same time when older brother Ben, a junior, was 8. He swims the breaststroke in the medley, while Lucas, a sophomore, is in the two freestyle relays. Little brother pushes big brother and big brother doesn't want to lose out to little brother, so it helps foster a culture that helps everyone out. Jamin Howe, the only medalist free relay back from last year, is somewhat surprised at how well things came together after the departure of a great senior class.
The Lex boys finished third in last year's state meet and were the top public school program. The girls finished 10th, marking the first time both teams finished in the top 10 in program history. People really started stepping up, dropping times and My brother the Lexington the work in.
Jamin will be swimming on both freestyle relays, ed in the free relay by Andrew Hathaway, Lucas Starling and Tanner Holmes, who formed a brothers act like year with Justice, his older sibling. Jadon Wyant rounds out the free relay, while Holmes is on the free relay and medley relay and also competing in the 50 free and butterfly. Tessa Gerhardt, a senior anchor on the girls side, has probably lost track of state meet appearances.
She helped the cross country team win the last three state titles, she's competed in the state track meet twice and she returned to swimming after taking last season off after earning a relay medal in But it's my senior year.
I love swimming; I love competing. I'm super glad I came back to swim and end my senior year like this. Gerhardt is on both state-qualifying relay teams, along with Olivia Newman backLily Weeks breast and Sarah Malaska fly. Lily Weeks swims the breast on the medlley, while Ashley Brumit rounds out the free relay. Newman has also qualified in the 50 free and Weeks in the IM. Parr, a sophomore, is the first Lex girl to qualify for state in diving since Facebook Twitter.
