With Cheshire Y, she’s been on six YMCA Nationals title-earning relays. Individually, she’s made several YMCA LC Nationals A-finals, and was the 100 free runner-up in 2018 (57.84). Most recently, at the Connecticut Senior Champs in March, Murphy won the 50 free, tied for the win in the 100 free, and took fourth in the 500 free, while being on all five of Cheshire’s winning relays.
