Hackley Varsity Swimming 2019-20
Led by Ivy champions Mary Rotenberg ’21 and Max Hardart ’21, the Hackley Girls and Boys Swim Teams had strong seasons, the girls team finishing second in league behind the strong and large Trinity team, and the boys finishing fourth.
All members of the team worked hard and showed significant progress from the start of the season to the end – highlighted by the fact that everyone on the roster improved their lifetime best times.
Some highlights from the season were Mary Rotenberg breaking the 200 IM school record and an Ivy Championship for the Girls’ 200 Medley Relay of Mary Rotenberg, Kaitlyn Qu ’22, Grace Park ’22, and Ella Jones ’20. Also, top Ivy honors for Max Hardart in the 200 IM and 500 Free and Mary Rotenberg in the 100 back stroke.
At NYSAIS, individuals recognition went to Thomas Sasso ’20 (200 Free), Max Hardart ’21 (200 IM and 100 Breast), Mary Rotenberg ’21 (200 IM, 100 Back), and Ella Jones ’20 (100 Free) who all placed in the top three in their events. An even greater accomplishment was the girls placing fourth overall out of 20 schools. With much of the team returning next year the outlook for the program is very bright.
