OK, folks, it is still swimming season.

I know the athletes are in their tapers, so we sometimes lose sight of the fact that we have the PIAA Championships coming up next week. While, I had some free time, while trying to recover from this terrible flu, I put together a rundown of Lackawanna League swimmers and where they are seeded for the four-day meet that takes place at Bucknell University’s Kinney Natatorium.

Remember, seeds are just a projection. They are not a guarantee of a medal. The top eight finishers in each event receive medals in each classification for the state meet. There is also a B race where swimmers aim to finish among the top 16. There are morning swims for qualifiers and finals are in the evening. It is a busy time at Bucknell University.

Scranton Prep also has a pair of girls relay teams, which are primed and among the top seeds in Class 2A:

  • 200 Free Relay: Audrey Campo, Cat Donlon, Alison Prushinski, Peyton McNulty — T1st
  • 200 Medley Relay: Audrey Campo, Cat Donlon, Alison Prushinski, Lauren Lanzendorfer — 5th

Also:

  • Scranton Prep boys 200 Medley Relay is seeded 19th in Class 2A at 1:41.66.
  • Scranton boys 200 Free Relay is seeded 24th in Class 3A at 1:30.07.

I want to wish all of the swimmers who I covered this year, the best of luck.

Scranton Prep senior Audrey Campo.
