In addition to Swimmers of the Year Sarah Baturka of Episcopal Academy and Jimmy Jameson of Haverford School, the rest of the All-Delco team includes:
Tara O'Prey, Episcopal Academy: The four-time All-Delco did what her team needed at Easterns, taking fifth place in the 50 freestyle (24.24 seconds, fastest in Delco) and eighth in the 100 butterfly (57.71) all on Day 1 of the meet. She capped her high school career by splitting 52.46 seconds on the anchor leg of the 400 free relay, helping set a Delco record and finishing second at Easterns. O'Prey will continue her swimming career at the University of Connecticut.
Emily Rhodes, Episcopal Academy: A three-time All-Delco selection, Rhodes lowered her county record in the 100 fly to 55.74 seconds, good for second place at Easterns. The junior also finished second in the 100 backstroke at Easterns and took part in the Churchmen's winning medley relay.
Bernadette Tankle, Episcopal Academy: Perhaps one of the Churchmen's most versatile swimmers, the three-time All-Delco filled a major need by swimming the 500 free at Easterns, in which she finished eighth in the county's fastest time this season (5:02.74). Tankle, a junior, also snuck into the A final of the 100 fly, finishing sixth, while turning in the fastest split on the Delco-record setting 400 free relay (52.12).
McKenzie Street, Episcopal Academy: The sophomore two-time All-Delco recorded A-final finishes in two events at Easterns, taking fourth in the 100 breaststroke and sixth in the 200 individual medley. Street also swam a leg on the 200 free relay that finished fourth.
Lauren Early, Garnet Valley: The two-time All-Delco set the county record in the 100 breast with her time of 1:04.93 at the preliminaries of the PIAA Class AAA championships. She finished eighth with another time under 1:05 (1:04.98) in finals. Early had toppled the county record at the District One championships in which she won the title, and the East Carolina-bound swimmer also qualified for states in the 200 IM.
Maddie Hart, Haverford: One of the revelations of the championship season, the freshman swam three events at the PIAA championships. Her strong backstroking led the Fords' medley relay to a sixth-place finish. Hart finished a staggering fourth in the 100 back and seventh in the 100 fly as one of only three freshman girls to medal at AAA states. She was also the Central League champion and District One runnerup in the 100 back.
Alli Butera, Haverford: The senior set the Delaware County record for an 11-dive score with her total of 467.85 at the District One Class AAA Championships, good for third place. She parlayed that into a seventh-place finish at states with a score of 426.15. Butera, who will dive at UConn next year, was also the high scorer over six dives (266.40) this season and outdueled last year's All-Delco and training partner Marin Bloise of Agnes Irwin in a dual meet this season.
Dan McGrath, Haverford School: The unusual combination of sprinter and breaststroker, McGrath had a breakout junior campaign. His Delco-best 50 free time of 21.55 was good for fifth at Easterns, a finish he complemented with a fifth-place finish in the 100 breast. McGrath's contributions helped the Fords make the A finals of the 200 medley and 400 free relay (both sixth-place finishes).
Ben Baturka, Episcopal Academy: The freshman was the county's best backstroker, clocking in at 51.81 seconds to take seventh at Easterns, the fastest time in Delco by almost a half second. Also a versatile freestyler, he finished eighth in the 200 free, and his untapered time in the 100 free was the eighth-fastest in the county.
Connor Hart, Haverford: The junior distance specialist made it back to finals at the PIAA Championships in both the 200 and 500 free, finishing 14th in both. His times of 1:43.29 in the 200 and 4:39.74 in the 500 were the fastest in the county. Showing his freestyle proficiency, Hart's flat-start relay splits from the District One championships in the 50 (22.37) and 100 (48.37) were each fifth-fastest in the county.
Philip Nawn, Penncrest: Nawn's time in the 200 IM at districts (1:57.30) was the fastest in the county by almost two seconds this season. The sophomore also qualified for states in the 500 free, just missing out on the final in a time of 4:42.02, the third-fastest time in the county. Nawn's districts relay split in the 100 free (47.90) was also in the top 3 in Delco.
Josh Owsiany, Episcopal Academy: The sophomore two-time All-Delco diver won his third straight Easterns, scoring 463.60. It was made all the more remarkable given that he received scores in the twos on one dive, essentially spotting the field a dive before recovering to get the win. Owsiany also had the highest six-dive score in the county, earning an astounding 321.55 points in a early-season dual meet.
