 The Cougar Varsity Coed Swim Team had an overall outstanding meet on Monday against Barrack’s arch nemesis school, Perkiomen. After having an unhealthy dilemma about what to wear the day of to show our spirit, the swim teem got down to business at the meet. The boys started off with a tremendous victory in the 200 medley relay consisting of Ari Cooper, Eli Kofman, Adam Mermelstein, and Mitchell Rosenthal as the first relay and Ethan P. Stein, Ethan Cramer, Jacob Prince, and Alex Tompakov winning first and second place respectively. Ethan Cramer improved and claimed second in the 200 free followed by the flip turn master, Gabe Miller, and Isaac Becker. Rebecca Wilson showed mastery at the butterfly in her fantastic showing of the 200 medley. In the same event, the two future olympians, Mitchell and Eli Kofman, swam an outstanding medley ensuring a first and second place for Barrack. Ari Miller swam a perfect 100 fly claiming second place for the girls despite difficult competition. Both Becci Spivack and Lauren Mermelstein swam with competence but fell short to the best swimmers on the team along with Mattan B. Manstein, Gabe Miller, and Spencer Barsh showing only their best. The 500 free proved to be a victory for the Cougars led by Ethan Stein, Ethan Cramer, and Rebecca Wilson all collecting numerous points. A special shoutout to the Perkoimen swim team for lending counters to the people counting the laps for the 500 for Barrack (Jacob Prince and Benji Axelrod). Ari Cooper claimed first in the 100 back followed by Eli Gordon who claimed bronze in the race. Tamar Wohlberg and Jenna Ufberg stepped out of their comfort zones and performed superbly in the 100 back as well. The three musketeers of the 100 breast, Eli Kofman, Eli Gordon, and Jacob Prince, claimed first, second, and third respectively along with an outstanding performance from Lauren Mermelstein claiming third and Sariela Spivak not far behind in the same event. In the 400 free relay, Caleb Epstein, Benji Axelrod, Maccabi Benjamin, and Dylan Mandel all stepped up their game showing the best performance from the fantastic four. The girl’s 400 relay also swam with diligence consisting of Ari Miller, Madelyn Denker, Jenna Ufberg, and Tamar Wohlberg claiming third. Despite some fierce and passionate swimming from Barrack, the Perkiomen swim team won the meet with some new and experienced swimmers. We look forward to swimming against them again up in Perkiomen land and waters.  In spite of losing a huge meet like this one, the boy’s team is still undefeated after swimming three meets. The boy’s team won 90 to 67, which is the most we won against Perk. This is a Barrack swim team record for most wins by the boy’s swim team in a row and in all!!!
