In the last few weeks a lot has happened in the Mason sports world. Here’s a recap:
Girls and Boys varsity swimming:
The first swim meet for the girls and boys varsity swim team was December 1 and a sound win for the Mustangs, with boys dominating over Madison County 133-35. The girls also brought it home with an 84 point margin with their win.
For boys, a school record was broken in the 200 Medley Relay by senior Lucas Cherry, freshman Miller Surette, sophomore Jared Britton, and junior Nick Robertson with a time of 1:43.26. Surette and Cherry broke individual race records as well. Surrette broke the school record for the 200m Individual Medley with a time of 2:02.03 as well as the 100m Breaststroke with a time of 1:05.15 and Cherry broke the 50m Freestyle time with an impressive 22.44 seconds. Cherry, junior Austin Gogal, Surette, and Britton also broke a record with their 200m Free Relay coming in with a time of 3.07.
The girls also made a splash with freshmen Francesca King breaking the school’s record in the 100m Butterfly with a time of 1:02.92. Freshman Erin McFall also broke a school record in the 100m backstroke with a time of 1:05.81 as well as sophomore Beth Cashin in the 100m Breaststroke coming in at 1:10.81.
The Scholastic Bowl team has earned an impressive 12-0 this season and a few weeks ago made school history with senior Liam O’Connell answering all the questions in three rounds. This set the record for most points in one round with 440 points, with 450 being the highest total a team can achieve, leaping over the school’s previous record. The academic team is looking for their next win Monday, December 10, against Rappahannock County High School at Madison County High School. The meet takes place at 5:00.
Coed Ice Hockey:
West-Mason played a great game November 30, securing a 7-4 win making their win/loss record a solid 3-2. Their next home game is December 14 at Kettler Iceplex, which is on top of Ballston Mall, against Osbourn at 6:30. The game’s free and parking is a dollar if you’re there for less than three hours.
