Meet Newsday's 2015 All-Long Island girls swimming and diving team.
Long Island swimmer of the year: Maggie Aroesty, Long Beach, Jr.
How do you top being named the most outstanding swimmer in the county championship meet? By doing it at the state championship meet. Two weeks after earning top honors at the Nassau championships, Maggie Aroesty was named the most outstanding swimmer of the state meet in Ithaca. Aroesty won the 100 breaststroke in 1:00.00, breaking her own state record that she set earlier this year. It was her third straight state title in the event. She also won the 200 individual medley. After posting the fastest time in the prelims (2 minutes, 4.13 seconds), she improved to 1:58.45 in the finals to win the event for her second time. She also joined Kristen Romano, Morgan Harrington and Joan Cash on the 200-yard medley relay that won in 1:44.63.
Casey Gavigan, Ward Melville, Sr.
Casey Gavigan had the best Suffolk finish at the state meet. She placed fourth in the 100 backstroke in a time of 55.73, a .61-second improvement from her time in the preliminaries.
