Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS - Freeman staff

Kingston High was un­able to add any more qual­i­fiers for next week’s Sec­tion 9 girls swim cham­pi­onships af­ter three failed to reach cut times at the Last Chance Meet hosted by New­burgh Free Academy.

Se­nior Melissa Lon­gendyke came the clos­est to earn­ing a spot at the Nov. 3-5 meet at Val­ley Cen­tral. She took nine-hun­dreths of a sec­ond off her sea­son best to swim a 1:20.39 for sec­ond place in the breast­stroke, but she missed the sec­tional time by 29-tenths of a sec­ond.

Lon­gendyke also com­peted in the 50-yard freestyle, fin­ish­ing 19th in 30.03.

The Tigers also had se­nior Macken­zie Der Cola and sev­enth-grader Emily McCord com­pet­ing.

Der Cola slashed 3.17 sec­onds off her time to do 2:18.93 for fifth place in the 200-free, but was still more than four sec­onds shy of the cut.

She was ninth in the 100-free with a 1:03.54.

McCord did 6:14.52 for fifth in the 500-free and 28.47 for sev­enth in the 50-free.
