The Archbishop Molloy girls swim team won their second consecutive championship.

The Archbishop Molloy High School girls swim team is still the princesses of the pool.

The team made a big splash on Sunday, winning its second consecutive crown in the GCHSAA Division A championship at Eisenhower Park on Long Island.

The win also completes the second consecutive undefeated season for the team as well.

“We had a very strong team,” said Swimming Director Donald Green. “Everybody on the team did their personal best.”

During the championship, Molloy competed so well that the swim squad set new school records. The team won all three relays events, and set records in the 200 yards medley and 400 free style relays.

Molloy senior co-captain Alexandra Rubiano won the 100 yards butterfly with a time of 59.4 seconds, which became the new school record in that category. Rubiano also received the Joe and Anna Stetz Outstanding Career Swimmer award, which is given to the league’s top senior swimmer.

Green attributes the girls’ winning ways to their work ethic. He said in September they come eager to practice and set goals for themselves for the year. The team even trains during winter break.

“It’s actually the girls’ mind set,” Green said. “Basically, we are just there to help and guide them. They know what they want, and they go and achieve it.”

After having won the championship again, the girls are aiming to make it a three-peat.

“They are already talking about next year,” Green said. “They already set their minds that they want to do this again next year.”
