His time is the 25th fastest ever at the New York State Championships and the fastest time ever of any dutchess county high school swimmer. He also was a medalist with a 6th place finish in the 200 Free with a 1:40.88 time in trials.

Coach Bubel commented that “Last year Michael did not even qualify for states in the 500 free – he had only qualified in the 200 and had taken 47th place-he worked extremely hard and made incredible improvements.”

Congratulations Michael! Great job!
