 The West Haven girls swim team knew it would face a tough challenge in the season opener. Playing perennial powerhouse Cheshire, the Westies were looking to improve their performances. 
Despite losing 100-76, the Westies saw plenty of solid efforts, especially by senior Elizabeth Fournier and junior diver Sarah Flynn. 
Fournier finished in the top three in two individual events and put up points in the events she was involved in. Flynn also did well in the diving events, finishing with 118 points. 
"I was so proud of all the girls today," West Haven head coach Erin McCauley said. "Cheshire can be an intimidating opponent, but I told all of the girls to stay positive and set personal goals rather than trying to race the person next to them. We have some new kids who couldn't even swim a lap two weeks ago and they competed and finished three races today." 
West Haven finished third in the 200 medley relay as sophomore Karen Caceres, Fournier, junior Talia Raucci and junior Jasmine Gilbert finished in 2 minutes, 20.21 seconds.

The 50 freestyle saw Jasmine Gilbert with a fourth place finish in 30.96, followed by Joseph in 35.70. 
Flynn was the top Westie with 118 points in the diving events, followed by junior Maxine Carrion with 110 points. 
"Sarah Flynn and Maxine Carrion both had personal best scores in diving, and Elizabeth (Fournier) and Kareen (Caceres) are right where they should be time wise to start the season. I'm looking forward to more good things on Friday against Daniel Hand."
Fournier placed second overall in the 100 butterfly in 1:03.87 and Bartozzi was fourth overall in 1:36.65. Raucci was West Haven's top swimmer in the 100 freestyle and fourth overall in 1:13.47 and Jasmine Gilbert was fourth overall in the 500 freestyle in 6:44.31. 
The team of Padro, Joseph, Bartozzi and Sirena Frissora placed fourth overall in the 200 freestyle relay in 2:23.39,  Caceres was second overall in the 100 backstroke in 1:17.19 and Joseph was fourth overall in the 100 breaststroke in 1:38.40.

One step at a Time
Westies looking to improve throughout the year

(September 8, 2014) -
 The West Haven girls swim team is looking for steady progress in 2014. Coming off a season in which they were 1-9 in 2013, the Westies and coach Erin McCauley are looking to steadily improve. 
"Our keys to success will be our top swimmers staying healthy and our newcomers sticking with it," McCauley said. "Swimming can be a tough sport to learn, but our freshmen seem enthusiastic.
"I have liked the number of new people who want to come out and try swimming, and I have liked the look of Elizabeth's (Fournier) strokes."
Leading the way for the 2014 Westies is senior captain Elizabeth Fournier. Fournier will use her talents to swim the 200 IM, 100 butterfly and 100 freestyle. 
"Elizabeth is an outstanding swimmer who looks to have a banner year and hopefully go All-SCC to close it out," McCauley said. "She has a chance of breaking the school records in the 100 free and 100 fly events. I have coached her since she was 11 years old, and it is so fun and amazing to see what an excellent swimmer and respectable young lady she has become."
Also returning for the Westies is sophomore Karen Caceres, who will swim the 200 IM, backstroke and butterfly. Junior Jasmine Gilbert returns to swim in the freestyle events, junior Talia Raucci will swim in the 200 IM, butterfly and freestyle, and senior Sarah Flynn will compete in the diving events. 
"This will be an exciting year for our divers as some rules and scoring changes may allow them to compete at the conference championship meet," McCauley said. "Sarah (Flynn) looks very good going into our first meet. Talia (Raucci) has been working very hard in the off season, and coming off an injury last year, I think this will be her breakout year and she will achieve some great times." 
McCauley and the Westies also have Mary Luz Heidtmann, who is a sophomore transfer from Sacred Heart Academy . Heidtmann will swim in the 200 IM and the breaststroke. Junior Maxine Carrion will also participate in the diving events. 
"She (Heidtmann) is an excellent swimmer and competes in the 200 IM and the breaststroke," McCauley said. "If she stays healthy, she will be a huge addition to our team. Maxine could bring in some extra much needed points for us on the diving board this season.
"I hope to see at least four of our swimmers and one diver compete for the top 24 in the conference this season, and I would like to win at least one meet so that we can at least maintain our streak of no winless seasons." 
West Haven opens the season Tuesday, September 9 at home against Cheszxhire at 4 p.m.
