Local Swimmer Breaks Xavier School Records
Patrick Kilgallen, a junior at Xavier High School and Belle Harbor resident, represented the CHSAA and Xavier at the recent State Federation Swim Championships at Eisenhower Park. Patrick set two new Xavier records with times of 1:43.58 for the 200-yard freestyle and 4:44.28 in the 500-yard freestyle. Kilgallen’s new records were good for 10th place and 14th place in the entire state. The CHSAA won the meet among all public, religious, and private schools in the state. Coach Dennis Murphy said that Kilgallen made quite an impression among the coaches and competitors at the championships. Murphy made quite an impression himself, being voted the Division’s Coach of the Year for the second consecutive year, following back to back undefeated seasons and division titles.
