Locals Spark Molloy Swim Team To Brooklyn-Queens Championship
Archbishop Molloy High School girls varsity swim team recently won its eighth consecutive Brooklyn- Queens Championship. GCHSAA swimming chairman Heather Green-Wresch said this is quite outstanding given the fact that Molloy has had a girls varsity team for only nine years.
The Molloy coaching staff of Donald Green, Dennis Wresch, Keith Green and Danny Quinn is all Rockaway residents. Donald Green, swimming director at Molloy, said that Rockaway residents have always been a big part of the team and this year senior co-captain Paige Whelan and freshman Marina Cregon were instrumental in this year’s championship. The Molloy coaches are hoping that next year a larger number of Rockaway girls will join the team and help with the quest for nine straight championships.
