What do you get when you combine 118 events and 31 teams over four days?

If you’re the Hudson Explorers Aquatics Club, it adds up to one stellar weekend in the water.

HEAT swimmers competed at the SPIRE Institute in Geneva for the 2019 Holtrey Summer Classic June 13-16. Joining the Explorers in the water were swimmers from 30 other teams from six different states.

Leading the charge for HEAT was the duo of Alex Cimera and Sara Baylor. Cimera, 14, won eight individual events on his way to the 13-14-year-old boys’ high-point award. Baylor, 12, scored in the top four in eight of her events, good enough to earn her high-point runner-up for the 11-12-year-old girls’ division.

But it wasn’t just a winning weekend for HEAT swimmers. It was a record-breaking weekend as well.

Three HEAT members set team records in individual events. Cimera set new marks in the 13-14 boys’ 50-, 100- and 200-meter freestyle; the 100 and 200 butterfly; and the 200 individual medley.

Alex Gallagher, 13, set a HEAT record in the 100 breaststroke. Gigi Falke, 10, set four new team records in the 200 freestyle, 200 IM and the 50 and 100 butterfly.

Cimera also was part of two record-breaking relays. He joined Andrew Ketler, Vittorio Cappabianca and Ruben Szabo in setting a new mark in the 400 freestyle relay.

Later in the meet, Cimera, Ketler, and Cappabianca joined Gallagher to take down the HEAT record in the 400 medley relay. Both record-setting races were good enough for first place in the boys’ 13-14-year-old division.
