"Franklin junior Ashley Loomis has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for February 12th through February 18th. Loomis is the 21st athlete selected for the 2016-2017 school year and the ninth selection during the winter season. She is the first female swimmer to be selected this winter.
On Saturday at Boston University, Loomis continued her dominance in the pool by claiming her third straight 500-freestyle Div. 1 state championship, edging Beverly’s Nicole Welch by 0.36 seconds. Loomis and Welch were 13 seconds faster than the third place finisher. Loomis also brought home her second Div. 1 200-free title, again beating Welch but this time by more than a second. She was the meet’s only individual double winner.
Last weekend, Loomis set a meet record in winning the South title in the 200-free, hitting a time of 1:50.39 to win by four seconds, and won the 500-free by nine seconds. Earlier this month, Loomis became a three-time champion in both events at the Hockomock Swim Championships at Milford High, winning by 11 seconds in the 200 and a remarkable 22 seconds in the 500."Continue reading the article online at HockomockSports
