Swimming Sweeps Kent

Both the boys and girls swim teams won their first meet after Long Winter Weekend in convincing fashion over visiting Kent on Feb. 12.

The girls varsity (2-3) beat the Lions 98-72, and the boys (3-2) won by nearly as large a margin with a final total of 96-79.

Although the girls team won fewer events than the boys, their depth earned more points, finishing in the top two in the 200 IM relay, 200-yd. freestyle, 50-yd. freestyle, 100-yd. freestyle, 200-yd. freestyle relay, 50-yd. backstroke, and 50-yd. butterfly.

Even more impressively, the girls swept the top three places in diving (Meera Kasturi ’22, Eden Oostenink ’20, and Grace Helm ’21) and the 500-yd. freestyle (Elise Nam ’20, Ella Mohanram ’20, and Abby Renger ’23).

The boys produced similarly strong results, with top-two finishes in the 200 IM relay, 200-yd. freestyle, 50-yd. freestyle, 100-yd. freestyle, and 50-yd. breaststroke. The boys also swept the top three places in the 50-yd. backstroke (Leo Poggi ’20, Chris Tolis ’21, and Samarth Puthanmadhom ’22) and 200-yd. IM (James Yae ’23, Royce Shey ’21, and Tolis).

Both teams will have a tri-meet against NMH and Deerfield on Saturday.
