The Cape Elizabeth girls hold a team victory swim in the Bowdoin College pool in Brunswick after capturing the Class A state championship Tuesday night. Brunswick was second and Deering third, followed by Bangor and Cheverus.
Genna Worthley is cheered on by her Deering High supporters. Worthley won the 200 individual medley and 100 breast stroke. She also was on the 200 medley relay team that placed second.
Off they go, straight into the pool for the start of the 500-yard freestyle in the Class A state championships. The race is so long that more than 36 seconds separated the winner from the eighth-place finisher. Carl D. Walsh/Staff Photographer
