Earlier this week, Zachary Shine and Trevor McCabe each helped lead their high school teams to Section V swim titles in two different classes while both qualified to compete in the New York State Championships on March 4 and March 5 in Buffalo, NY.
Zach, a senior at Geneseo High School, swam on the 1st place 200 medley relay team, took 4th in the 50 free, 1st in the 100 breast, and was part of the 1st place 200 relay, which set a Section V Class D record and a state qualifying time of 1:29.94.
Trevor, a sophomore at Avon High School, also qualified for the New York State Championships, doing so in three events with a state time in the 200 medley relay and individual state times in the 50 free of 22.15 and 100 breaststroke with a 1:00.33. His team won the Class C Section V Championship for the second year in a row.
On the bike both young men have also competed at the State Championship level for the Once Again Nut Butter Multi-Sport Race Team. Zach took 3rd in the 2015 NYS Criterium Championships for the 17-18 year old age group while Trevor took 2nd in the same race for the 15-16 year old age group.
Zach and Trevor are two of five young athletes who race for the Once Again Team. All five are honor students and all five represent their school in various sports, proving that multi-sport athletes create well-rounded young people and better overall competitors.
