Congratulations to Hannah Burlein and Karina Armetta on their Swimming Season for Honesdale High School this past winter. They placed in many major PIAA District II AA Swimming and Diving Events.

Several athletes making waves in the Lackawanna League this season are ones who might go unnoticed. That’s because when they compete in dual meets, they do so as nonscoring competitors because their home schools do not have swim teams.

It doesn’t prevent them from turning heads for stealing a first place or posting a fast time. Two swimmers from Honesdale compete when Holy Cross is in action.

Hannah participated in the following Swim meets with great success.
