The Martha’s Vineyard Makos, the swim team from the YMCA, traveled to Nantucket on Saturday Nov. 4 for the ninth annual Southeastern Massachusetts Swim League Pentathlon meet.

Four teams and more than 130 swimmers competed in butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, freestyle and individual medley events. The Makos team started when the YMCA opened, and is a relatively young and growing team, with 28 current members.

There were 17 swimmers from the Vineyard. Annabelle Brothers, 12, was the overall winner in the 11-12 short distance category. She had four firsts and one second place finish. Her winning time of 29.75 in the 50 freestyle was only 0.2 seconds off the meet record.

Gabby Carr, 14, had two firsts, two seconds and a sixth place. She broke two meet and league records with her times of 1:06.97 in the 100 butterfly, and 1:08.16 in the 100 backstroke, finishing second overall in her age group. Her backstroke time is more than 10 seconds faster than the current high school team record.

Christian Flanders, 12, had four second place finishes. His time in breaststroke would have won, but he was disqualified.

Ronan Mullin, 10, had one second place and four third places, finishing second overall in the boys 9-10 age group.

Oliver Dorr, 13, had a first place in the 100 backstroke with a time of 1:07.92, three thirds and a fourth, finishing fourth overall the boys 13-14 group.
