Killington Aquatic Club is finishing strong in their competitive swimming season. The swim team had 17 athletes compete at a qualifying meet, Regionals, at the end of February.
The season is coming to an end, but not until Sophia Nisiblat competes at the AGE group meet March 3 at Worcester Polytech Institute in the 50 Butterfly. Making a “cut” for the AGE group meet is a big accomplishment and Sophia will be the second swimmer from KAC to do this. Bailey Peters, now swimming as a college athlete, swam at AGE groups in 2017 and 2018.The last meet of the season will be a qualifying meet, Silvers, which will be at Upper Valley Aquatic Center. KAC has four swimmers who have qualified for this meet: Heidi Alf, Justine Peters, Julia Michel, and Sophia Nisimblat.
Killington Aquatic Club swims out of Pico Sports Complex October-March. Because the team does not have their own pool/facility they pay an hourly fee to the club.
