Pottsgrove’s Agnew, Upper Perk’s Fresa medal Day 1


It was done in a flash.

But what will last longer for Pottsgrove senior Patrick Agnew is the PIAA medal he received minutes after he placed fourth in the 50-yard freestyle at the PIAA Class AA Swimming Championships Friday at Bucknell University.

Agnew backed up his District 1 championship with a 21.24 swim in the A final.

“It happened so fast – like the blink of an eye,” Agnew said. “But it was fun to compete in this pool and everybody swam so fast. It was unbelievable I got the chance to be in the A finals.”

North Schuylkill junior Reggie Crawford edged Schuylkill Valley senior Colin Gwiazdowski to the wall in 20.45, tying the PIAA record – set by Gwiazdowski in prelims – in the process.

Earning a place on the podium was pleasing enough for Agnew.

“I was surprised. I was just happy to make the finals,” he said. “I ended up moving up a place, so I am happy with myself.”

Upper Perkiomen freshman Noel Fresa placed sixth in the 50 free with a 24.14 to earn a state medal.

Fresa led off the Upper Perk 200 free relay with Jayme Fisher, Bailey McCausland and Madison Modugno that finished 19th in prelims (1:42.91)

The Upper Perkiomen boys’ 200 medley relay of Daniel Miller, Kyle Kovalenko, Joel Williams and Cameron Junk placed 18th in prelims (1:42.55).

Kovalenko was 29th in the 200 IM prelims.

The second and final day of the PIAA Class AA Championships is Saturday.
