Riverhead Middle School seventh-grader Brooke Davies competed against some of the best swimmers in the county at the independent Suffolk County championship, held at Suffolk County Community College in Brentwood on Nov. 3. 

According to her adviser and health teacher, Lindsay Lindenbaum, Davies, who qualified for the 100-meter backstroke, may be one of the youngest in Riverhead Central School District history to have earned such an invitation. 

The seventh-grader has been swimming competitively for several years and regularly swims with the Sachem Swim Club under coach Mary Fleckenstein.
