Earl L. Vandermuelen High School sophomore Kyra Sommerstad placed first in the 200-meter Individual Medley and the 100-meter backstroke at the Section XI Swimming Championships held at Suffolk County Community College’s Brentwood campus.

Sommerstad, who swims with the Three Village Swim Club, came away with times of 2:04.73 in the medley and 56.61 in the backstroke to earn her a spot at the New York State swimming championships to be held later this month at Ithaca College.

“We are so proud of this accomplishment for Kyra,” said Danielle Turner, Port Jefferson School District’s athletic director. “We all wish her great luck at the state level.”
