After a successful first year, Nikki Samuelson figures to be Triton’s best returning swimmer in its second season as a varsity program next year. This year Samuelson placed second in the Cape Ann League in the 200-meter freestyle, and 42nd in the state in the 200-meter individual medley (2:31.24) and 26th in the state in the 500-meter freestyle (6:00.07). She was also a member of the 200-meter and 400-meter freestyle relay teams, which placed 12th (1:48.27) and 22nd (4:03.70) in the state respectively.
Maggie Summit was one of Triton’s top swimmers in the program’s inaugural season, placing 10th in the state in the 50-meter freestyle (25.72) and 24th in state in the 200-meter individual medley (2:23.04). She was also a member of Triton’s 200-yard freestyle relay and 400-yard freestyle relay teams, which finished seventh (1:47.36) and eighth (3:57.88) respectively at Sectionals. Summit looks up to Olympic Gold Medalist Missy Franklin as a role model and inspiration.
