Freshman Meghan O’Leary has started her Cabrini swimming season with some unbelievable records. Meghan has broken two Cabrini swim records this year alone.

O’Leary broke the 100 meter butterfly school record with an incredible time of 1:11.63. She also was part of the 200 medley relay that broke a Cabrini swimming record. The medley relay consisted of O’Leary, Kristen Longa, Christina Callahan, and Meredith Kroener.

O’Leary started swimming about 11 years ago, though she has been competitively swimming for 8 years. She attended Bishop Shanahan high school in Downingtown where she was a part of their swim team. O’Leary says that she enjoys swimming all year long. During the summer season Meghan is a life guard in Cape May N.J. At Cabrini O’Leary wants to graduate with a double major in education.

O’Leary’s quickness and precision brings a lot to the women’s swim team. She likes to swim in the 500 meter freestyle and the 100 meter butterfly.

She feels that here at Cabrini her swimming coaches and team are very supportive and helpful. She likes how there is more personalized help and training by her coaches and teammates here at Cabrini. O’Leary feels that her medley relay has great potential to keep winning events and lowering their times.

Her personal goal for this season is to keep lowering her personal race times. To help this goal along O’Learu practices five times a week with her team and does runs on her own time. Fortunately Meghan has stayed healthy and injury free so far this season. Although the women’s swim team is not large in numbers O’Leary feels that as a team they are very strong together.

To see O’Leary and her teammates in action come to one of the girls swimming meets. Upcoming home meets include Ocean City on Jan. 8 at 1 p.m., Eastern University on Jan. 19 at 7 p.m., and Arcadia University on Jan. 29 at 1 p.m..
