Our 2019 Regional All-Stars Gala swimming award winners represent athletes from two local high schools teaming up under the Mount Anthony Union High School banner. Here are the honorees:
Co-girls swimmer of the year: Savannah Robson, Mount Anthony senior
Robson was a captain and senior leader for the MAU swim team this winter.
On Senior Night, she was part of the relay team that cruised to an almost 11-second win in the 200 free relay against New Lebanon.
In a pair of wins against Taconic, she was the winner in the 200 IM, along with wins in the 100 back and breaststroke in December.
Co-boys swimmer of the year: Ben Medvedev, Mount Anthony senior
Medvedev was one of the top performing MAU swimmers on the boys side.
He was a winner in events across the board throughout the season and had one of his best performances on Senior Night when he won four events.
In that meet, Medvedev was a winner in the 200 free relay, 200 medley relay, 400 free relay and 50 free.
At season's end, Medvedev earned All-Berkshire league honors in the 400 free relay.
Co-boys swimmer of the year: Devin Deets, Mount Anthony (BBA senior)
Deets, who is a Burr and Burton student, was a major contributor on the MAU swim team this winter.

In a dominating win against Taconic, he won the 50 free and was a 100 free winner against Monument Mountain.
One of his biggest moments of the season was when he filled in on the 400 relay for an ill teammate. He swam the first leg of the relay and MAU won the race.
At season's end, Deets earned All-Berkshire league honors in the 400 free relay.
