Swimming Makes A Splash In Debut Meets


The Bay Ridge Prep Varsity Swimming Tigers dived right into being a competitive force during their first two meets of the program’s debut season. Matched up against other schools in the Independent School Athletic League, the Tigers are already making a splash in several swim categories. 


During the Dec. 1 ISAL swim meet, Shi Jenkins ‘25 placed first in the Girls 100-yard Freestyle while Misha Igel-Jaiani ‘23 placed third in the Boys 100-yard Freestyle. One week later, on Dec. 8, Jenkins took first place again in the Girls 50-yard Freestyle and Girls 100-yard Breastroke. In the Girls 200-yard Freestyle Relay, Jenkins along with Sophia Feder ‘24, Catherine Mack ‘24 and Sophia Saadi ‘26 placed third, trailing the second place team by just an eight-hundredths of a second! George Brownstein ‘24 finished first in their heat in the Girls 100-yard Breaststroke while Selina Psarras ‘26 tied for second in her heat in the same race.


Swim meets have been streamed live and posted to the @bayridgepreptigers Instagram story. Follow the Bay Ridge Prep Tigers all season long!
