Killington Swim Team: Small team puts up big results

Sharks swimmers Nova Wang, Matt Titterton, Bailey Peters, Griffin Vanniel and Kyle Weirether competed in this past weekend’s swim meet.

The Killington Swim Team had a successful and fun swim season with Head Coach Kim Peters, and assistants Bailey Peters, Matt Titterton, Kate Ganley, and Maddie Reed. The team had over 50 swimmers this season.

This past weekend, the Killington Sharks proved they are a competitor in the Vermont Swim Association (VSA).

“Our goal at the VSA meet was to finish in the top three this year, and for me it was important because of our two seniors, Bailey Peters and Nova Wang, being there last swim meet with Killington Sharks,” said head coach Peters. The Killington Sharks placed third place overall in Division III and scored 634 points total. The following swimmers scored high for Killington Sharks: Bailey Peters (76 points) Matt Titterton (74 points), Sophia Nisimblat (57 points), Nova Wang (55 points), Griffin VanNiel (55 points), Kyle Weirether (43 points), Mattie Peters (42 points), Justine Peters (39 points), Kyle Harned (29 points), Heidi Alf (20 points), Maddie Reed (17 points), Paige Harned (13 points), and Otto Nisimblat (6 points).

Over the weekend, the VSA honored the graduating seniors from over 20 teams in the league. The league had 24 graduated seniors; the Killington Sharks have two seniors: Bailey Peters, who will be attending school at Southern Connecticut and will continue swimming as a college athlete, and Nova Wang who will study finance and Music at Boston College. Bailey Peters received one of the four $800 scholarships awarded to graduating seniors by the VSA.
