Swimmer of the Year: Colleen Callahan

Atlantic City, Sr.

The four-time Press Swimmer of the Year became the first girls swimmer in New Jersey history to win eight straight individual titles at the Meet of Champions. She broke her own state record in the 200-yard individual medley in 2 minutes, 00.72 seconds at the MOC on March 3. The 17-year old Ventnor resident also took the 100 breaststroke for the fourth time in 1:01.78, missing the record she set in 2012 (1:01.29) by 0.49 seconds. Callahan, who will continue her career at University of Tennessee, also holds meet records in the 100 breaststroke at the South Jersey Interscholastic Swimming Association Coach's Invitational Meet, the Cape-Atlantic League Championships and the Hackney Invitational.
