From the June 3, 2021 Portland Press Herald
Emily Ecker Cape Elizabeth resident and CEHS Class of 2020 will compete in her first Olympic trials this weekend. Ecker, 18, of Cape Elizabeth, will compete in the 400 freestyle. Emily just completed her first year of college at the University of Wisconsin. The window for achieving an Olympic Trials qualifying time opened in November 2018 and closed on Sunday. Ecker, a member of the Portland Porpoise Swim Club, made it with two days to spare, posting a time of 4 minutes, 15.41 seconds in the Wisconsin Time Trial Qualifier meet a week ago in Madison. That time ranks ninth among the 20 women in Wave I who beat the 400 freestyle standard of 4:16.
Good luck Emily!
