During the season, Notre Dame Prep was unbeaten in Catholic League competition.

Yesterday, at the inaugural Catholic League swimming championships, the Pirates showed why.

Coach Lisa Weigmann's squad won three events and swam to top-three finishes in five others en route to a 61-point win over Seton Keough at the Dundalk Fitness and Aquatic Center.

Notre Dame Prep finished with 311 points, followed by Seton Keough (250), McDonogh (204), Severn (184), Spalding (115) and the Institute of Notre Dame (106).

The margin of victory surprised Weigmann, whose team had to come from behind just two weeks ago to edge Seton Keough by two points in a dual meet.

"I expected it to be very close considering that there were other teams here with some very good swimmers," said the first-year coach. "We had a lot of good times today, and a lot of girls who dropped their times significantly."

Leading the way for the Pirates was senior Shannon Curreri who posted wins in the 200 freestyle and 100 fly, and swam a leg on the winning 400 freestyle relay team and the second-place 200 medley relay team.

Seton Keough's Meghann Donovan won the 50 freestyle, took second in the 100 breaststroke and swam a leg on the winning 200 free relay.
