Zoe Scarpone - Linsly
Linsly's Zoe Scarpone is hoping to duplicate her freshman season in which she won four silver medals, two individually and two with relay teams, at the OVAC championships Steubenville High School's natatorium.
Scarpone finished behind Brooke senior Kaylea Dulaney in the 100 fly with a time of 1:03.40 and clocked in a time of 2:18.43 in the 200 individual medley. The sophomore then teamed up with Julia Bird, Hannah Kriechbaurn and Danielle Gavorcik in the 200 medley and 200 free relays, finishing behind Wheeling Park in the medley and John Marshall in the free.
"She had a very impressive freshman year," Linsly's head swimming coach Bill Brubaker said. "I coach the Y swim team as well and Zoe's been swimming for me for awhile, so I was familiar with her before high school.
"She was able to break the long time standing school record in the 100 butterfly and she also placed at the Eastern Scholastic Championship meet," he said.
The Eastern Scholastic Championship meet is the largest prep school aquatic event in the United States for both men's and women's swimming and diving. It is also one of the most prestigious and competitive high school swim meets in the country.
"This years team's make up is different," said Brubaker. "Last year she would always swim the 200 IM and the 100 butterfly, but she can pretty much swim anything well."
