The girls and boys swim teams from St. Paul VI Catholic High School in Chantilly won first and second at the 11th annual Northern Virginia Catholic Invitational Championship at the Freedom Center in Manassas Jan. 16. Paul VI competed against Seton School in Manassas, St. Gertrude High School in Richmond, Oakcrest School in Vienna, and Saint John Paul the Great Catholic High School in Potomac Shores.

This was the first year Paul VI’s girls team won the team title. Abigail Foley placed first in both the 50-yard and 100-yard freestyle events, earning her the distinction of “Swimmer of the Meet” for the girls division. 

In the boys division, Matthew Johnson won the 200-yard freestyle and 100-yard breaststroke and was named “Swimmer of the Meet.” 

In addition to numerous first place finishes in the individual events, Paul VI also won five out of the six relays.

"Our success was a group effort and the hard work of every swimmer contributed to our team's success," said Anne Sullivan, assistant coach.
