Three DEFY Swimmers Headed for National Meet

ELLSWORTH — Three swimmers from the Down East Family YMCA swim team will travel to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., next week to compete in the YMCA Short Course National Championships.

Brian Batson, Chelsey Curran and Cecelia McEachern all earned their way into the competition by meeting qualifying times set by the YMCA. The meet pits the best YMCA swimmers in the nation against each other.

This will be the third such event for Batson, who has qualified for seven events, a record for a DEFY swimmer.

Curran and McEachern will be the first female swimmers representing the Dolphins at the national meet.

This is also the first year that the Dolphins have qualified more than two swimmers for the meet.
