Meet the Friar Boys Who Swam Fast at State in 2020!

The Fenwick Swimming & Diving Team finished 13th overall in Illinois this season.

Swim team accomplishments this season:

  1. The 200 Medley relay of Peter Buinauskas ’21 (Western Springs), Michael Flynn ’22 (Brookfield), Connor McCarthy ’21 (Elmhurst) and Dan Bajda ’20 (Lombard) took 12th place in the state of Illinois.  They also set a team record for the medley relay of 1:34.30 in prelims at the IHSA Championships.
  2. Michael Flynn took 3rd in the 500 Freestyle and 9th in the 200 Freestyle at the IHSA Championships. “Considering he is on both relays, he is by far the team’s MVP,” says Head Coach and alumnus Luke McGuire ’90.
  3. The 400 free relay took 7th at the IHSA Championships (Flynn, C. McCarthy, Buinauskas and Bajda), nearly missing a team record from their performance at Sectionals. 
  4. The Fenwick Swimming and Diving Team took 13th overall at the IHSA state Championships. Led by Captains C. McCarthy and Bajda, the team had solid performances last Friday in Evanston and was able to come back and score team points on Saturday, McGuire reports.

Co-captain C. McCarthy Is Athlete of the Month!

In addition to Connor’s Sectional and State Meet performances (highlighted above), he also swam fast at the MCAC Conference Meet:

  • 200 Medley Relay Fly Leg – 2nd
  • 200 Individual Medley – 3rd
  • 100 Fly – 2nd
