By Sharon Robb

WEST PALM BEACH, October 5, 2019—St. Andrew’s and King’s Academy, two small private schools, took center stage Saturday night at the Palm Beach County Swimming and Diving Championships at Lake Lytal Aquatic Complex.

St. Andrew’s won a record tenth straight combined team title with 736 points. Jupiter was second with 674 and King’s Academy was third with 639 points.

The Scots also won the girls team title with 424 ahead of Jupiter with 319 and Boca Raton with 266.

King’s Academy knocked off defending champion St. Andrew’s to win the boys team title for the first time with 378 points. Jupiter was second with 355 and St. Andrew’s was third with 312.

St. Andrew’s Emily Trieschmann was named Female Swimmer of the Meet. She finished with 40 points in high point. She won the 200- and 500-yard freestyles in 1:48.63 and 4:48.07, and was a member of the winning 200- and 400-yard freestyle relays.

Josh Zuchowski of King’s Academy was the Male Swimmer of the Meet. He also had 40 points in high point. Zuchowski won the 200-yard individual medley in 1:49.42 and 100-yard backstroke in 48.76 and was a member of the 200-yard medley and 400-yard freestyle relays.

Both Trieschmann and Zuchowski broke county records and turned in All-American times.

Megan Murphy of Forest Hill was the only other girls’ double winner. She won the 100-yard butterfly in 55.43 and 100-yard backstroke in 55.18.

St. Andrew’s swept all three girls relays to pile up the points. Aspen Gersper and Lucy Miller were individual winners for the Scots.
