RYE, N.Y. -- Brendan Lee could not contain his excitement Thursday at the conclusion of the boys eight-and-under 100 freestyle relay.
Lee, swimming the anchor leg, touched the wall and looked at the clock. Once he heard the announcement, he burst out with a fist pump and a Yeah.
Along with Wykagyl Country Club teammates Justin DiSanto, Justin Gager and Ian Steffenson, the quartet set a new standard of 1:2.3 in the relay to win the crown at the Westchester County Swim Conference Championships at Westchester Country Club.
Westchester Country Club won its second consecutive title, finishing with 857.50 points. Lake Isle Swim Team was the runner-up (748.50 points) and Greenwich Swim Team was third (748 points).
Lee was also a triple-winner, taking the eight-and-under 25 freestyle (14.01,) 25 backstroke (32.62) and 25 breaststroke (18.51). His three victories gave him 60 points, earning Lee the eight-and-under boys high-point award.
Younger sister Megan Lee, 7, was third in the girls eight-and-under high-point standings with 51. She won the 25 breaststroke (21.30,) was second in the 25 freestyle (15.41) and fifth in the butterfly.
When I saw we broke the record in the relay, it made me feel really good because the record was held by my brother, said the eight-year-old Lee of older brother, Ryan.
Ryan Lee was a member of the relay team that set the former mark of 1:05.36 in 2008. As excited as he was about the relay record, Lee was especially happy for his sister.
It was good to see Megan win and it made me feel happy that she won her race, said a smiling Lee, who is going into fourth grade at Edgewood Elementary School in Scarsdale. I told her, Good job after she won.
Teammates Scottie and Emmeline Berridge won their respective events. Scott Berridge was the girls 12-and-under breaststroke champion and Emmeline won the girls 10-and-under breaststroke.
Last week, the Berridge sisters did the same at the Westchester County Swimming Championships.
The girls eight-and-under 100 freestyle showed it would not be upstaged by the boys. Reagan Hackett, Sophie Carroll, Miranda Fritsch and Megan Lee won their event in a time of 1:09.20.
