Mamaroneck's Parry Sets Records, Wins Swim Title

RYE, N.Y. -- Nicole Parry began her Thursday by breaking a meet record at the 86th annual Westchester County Swimming Championships at Playland. The record she set did not last long because Parry went out in the final of the 12-and-under girls’ 50-yard freestyle and eclipsed it again.

Parry won the event in a record time of 24.89 seconds on the final night of the meet at Playland Pool. Parry also was the high-point recipient (30 points) in the girls' 12-and-under division. In her heat, Parry, 12, a Mamaroneck resident, touched the wall in 25.17 seconds, just shading the former standard of 25.19 seconds set in 1991 by Melissa Lavery.

“I didn’t even know about it until one of my friends told me,” said Parry, an eighth-grader-to-be at Hommocks Middle School in Mamaroneck. “I was excited about the first record, but I was calm.”

As a result of her record time, Parry was seeded first in the final. “I was kind of scared about that, but at the same time that pumped me up to swim,” Parry said. “Just before the race I had some butterflies but I knew I had to stay calm.”

Parry got off to a great start, enabling her to take the lead immediately. Parry was challenged, but it did not deter her. “It was pretty amazing,” said Parry of winning and setting a record. “It feels pretty good and is something I will always remember.”
