Shady Side Academy's long distance freestyler Caroline Colville made a long distance jump up the WPIAL Class AA leaderboard in her signature event, the 200-yard freestyle. A year ago, Colville made her WPIAL debut, finishing seventh and fifth in the 200 and 500 freestyle with times of 1:57.72 and 5:08.57.
Colville repeated her seventh-place finish in the 500 freestyle. It was her performance in the 200 freestyle that caught some by surprise. Colville shaved over a full second off her 2013 time and climbed from seventh place to the top of the podium, winning a gold medal with a time of 1:56.69.
