Eighth-grade swimmer Youssef Ibrahim finished the dual meet season with the Bellmore-Merrick Sharks undefeated in 1-meter Diving. 

“Youssef started the division championships with a bang by taking first place and qualifying for the state championships in Buffalo,” said the district swim coach Robert Kaefer.

The Grand Avenue Middle School eighth-grader went on to win this event at both the Division A Championships and the Nassau County Championships. Youssef scored a personal best with 491.05 points at the county championships, thusly qualifying him for the New York State Championships,  which will be held at Erie Community College in Buffalo from March 4-5. Youssef’s score was more than 80 points higher than the second place competitor.
