Sacred Heart High School sophomore Madeline King achieves highest points at NE Swim Championships
KINGSTON, Mass. – March 24, 2017 – PRLog — Sacred Heart School (www.sacredheartkingston.com), a private, Catholic, co-educational school in Kingston for students in preschool through grade 12, proudly announces that high school sophomore Madeline King of Kingston achieved the highest points across all strokes during the recent 2017 New England 15-18 Age Group Championships.
The distinction, earned at the March 3-5 event held at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute Sports and Recreation Center, is just one of the many major accomplishments the 16-year-old has achieved in her high school swimming career.
A member of the Cape Cod Swim Club (CCSC), King has been ranked the #1 female swimmer by USA Swimming in the 15-16 age group in New England since September of 2016 and 80th in the United States in the same age category.
In December of 2016 she and several teammates from the CCSC traveled to Columbus, Ohio, for the USA Junior National Swimming Championships. The then-15-year-old swam a time trial 200-meter backstroke in 2:01:19, setting a CCSC record.
King’s next major swim meet will be the USA Speedo Championships slated March 30-April 2 in Buffalo, New York. There, she and her teammates will attempt to meet the goal of setting a New England record in the 800-meter freestyle relay.
“The entire Sacred Heart community is thrilled for Madeline and proud of her many achievements,” said Sister Myra Rodgers, CDP, President of Sacred Heart School. “She is an outstanding example of the many student athletes who excel both in the classroom and in their chosen sport.”
