Thomas Jefferson High School dominated the Virginia High School Conference 13 meet over the weekend despite relegating nationally-known senior star Andrew Seliskar to just three relays.
Seliskar was impressive in all three of his splits. He swam butterfly on the 200 medley relay and put up a 20.99, a great result considering he’s probably far from fully rested. Seliskar led off the 200 free relay in 20.32 and anchored the 400 free relay in 44.74.
Between both genders, Jefferson won 5 of the 6 relays, dropping only the girls 200 free relay to Falls Church High.
The Jefferson girls got a big 200 IM win from Carrie Heilbrun, who went 2:06.66 to win by nearly 5 seconds. Even more dominant was freshman Sydney Harrington, who won the 200 free by over 9 (1:55.42).
Harrington also won the 100 fly (58.25). Edison’s Amanda Peren had a nice 100 back win, going 59.30 and leading a 1-2 charge for her school.
Seliskar’s Jefferson and Nation’s Capital Swim Club teammate Luke Thorsell got a win for the Jefferson boys, going 51.37 in the 100 back.
