The Ocean City High School girls’ swimming team captured its second consecutive South Jersey title in February and was honored by the Board of Education on Wednesday.

 

The Ocean City Board of Education took time before its regular meeting on Wednesday to honor the Ocean City High School girls’ swimming team.

The Red Raiders had an extremely deep squad that dominated Cape-Atlantic League competition this winter and won its second consecutive South Jersey Public B title.

The 200-yard freestyle relay team of Ryann Styer, Gabby Breazeale, Aly Chain and Amanda Nunan won a state title at the Meet of Champions in March — the first relay title in school history.

A trio of national-caliber individuals — sophomore Nunan, junior Amber Glenn and freshman Maggie Wallace — swept the top three spots in the 500-yard freestyle, an unprecedented feat for one school in one event at the Meet of Champions.

“Who does that?” Superintendent Kathleen Taylor asked, echoing a memorable quote from Wallace after the sweep at States.

“Us,” Taylor said.
