New Canaan YMCA sends two swimmers to Olympic Trials
The New Canaan YMCA Caimans swim team had two representatives at the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team Trials June 25-July 2 in Omaha, NE.
KC Moss, who graduated from Wilton High School this month and will be attending Stanford University in the fall, is at the trials for the 100-meter and 200-meter breaststroke. Moss has been a member of the US Junior National team for the last two years and was named CT Swimmer of the Year earlier this year.
Constantine Hadjipateras, who will be competing in the 200-meter butterfly, recently graduated from Colgate University and is a Caiman Alum and New Canaan High School graduate, where he was also a high school record holder. Hadjipateras also has dual citizenship and is ranked in the top-10 in Greece in the 200 butterfly.
"I'm very proud of our two swimmers," Caiman coach Jason Paige said. "Just participating at this meet demonstrates a level of commitment and dedication that is rivaled only by a very select few."
Moss competed in the 100-meter breaststroke event on Tuesday and came in 52nd place out of 152 swimmers with a time of 1:11.25. She will compete in the 200-meter breaststroke tonight which is scheduled to be broadcast on NBC at 4:30 p.m.
Hadjipateras competed in the 200-meter butterfly on Wednesday, but the result was not available at press time.
