Yan Wins 100 Backstroke; Marian Has Best Finish Ever at Catholic Central Championship

BOSTON – Marian’s co-ed swim team made its biggest splash at the Catholic Central League Championships, with its best finish in the school’s history.

Marian High’s Mustangs earned 147 points to place 7th out of eight teams at Simmons College on Saturday, February 4.

“This is the best finish we have had in the 4 years we have been swimming,” said head coach Sue Morse.

Mustang senior Noah T-Miller started off the scoring by taking ninth place in the 200-yard freestyle, with a personal best time of 2:30.58 minutes, said Morse.

Freshman Trey Adrian finished in 14th place in the 100-yard butterfly, in a time of 1:24.14 minutes.

Marian freshman Chance Yan finished second in the 100-yard freestyle with a time of 52.89 seconds. Teammmate T-Miller placed 16th overall, in the same event.

Senior captain Parker Yan finished in sixth place in the 500-yard freestyle, with a career best time of 6:05.39 minutes.

Then, the Yan brothers did their thing in the 100-yard backstroke, said Morse.

Chance won the title with a personal best time of 56.88 seconds. Parker finished 12th overall.

Marian sophomore Molly Bogner finished 16th overall in the 100-yard breaststroke.

The Mustangs 400-yard freestyle relay finished fourth overall at the League Championships in a season best time of 4:07.67 minutes. On the relay was Adrian, T-Miller and both Yan brothers.

The relay team of Chance Yan, sophomore Patrick Rupert , Adrian, and T-Miller  finished 7th in the 200-yard relay.

Several swimmers had personal best times, although they did not earn points for the Mustangs, said Morse. Only the top 16 swimmers in each event earned points at the Catholic Central League Championships.

Morse said the 200-yard relay team of Lin, Ning, Sun, and Bogner had a person best time, as did the 400-yard relay team of Nick Barry, Gladden, Rupert, and Hobin.
The Marian High swim team will compete for the first-time ever at the South Central Sectional Championships on Sunday, Feb. 12 at MIT and again at the Division 2 State Championships on Sunday, Feb. 19 at Boston University.
Freshman Chance Yan qualified for both post-season events, the first Marian Mustang to do so in the school’s history of the program.
