Blue Knights notch second victory


SOUTHINGTON — Six different swimmers got in victory lane for the Southington boys swim team Wednesday afternoon as the Blue Knights left Rocky Hill in their wake, 90-72, in a CCC interdivisional meet at the Southington YMCA.

Mack Golas led the way for Southington with a pair of individual victories. He captured the 100-yard backstroke in 1:06.40 and the 200 freestyle in 2:02.34.

Also for the Blue Knights (2-1 overall), Nick Brazil won the 200 individual medley (2:26.78), P.J. Ramsey won the 100 butterfly (1:01.27), Peter Masters mastered the 100 freestyle (58.90) and Austin Bull went the distance in the 500 free (6:01.89).

Matt Duszak, along with swimming on the first-place 200 medley relay, put up the fastest time in the 100 breaststroke at 1:09.01, but swam the race as exhibition with the meet already well in hand.

Joe Taglia’s second-place time of 23.74 in the 50 freestyle qualified him for the CIAC Class LL trials.

Daniel Hand 97, Lyman Hall 87: Kyle Neri and Alex May won two individual races apiece in the Trojans’ SCC setback at the Sheehan pool.

Neri swept the freestyle sprints. He won the 50 in 22.63 and the 100 in 51.49.

May was tops in the freestyle distance events. He took the 200 in 1:57.30 and the 500 in 5:17.61.

Lyman Hall got additional victories from Carlo Arellano in the 100 butterfly (1:02.62) and Robbie Driscoll in the 100 breaststroke (1:10.42).

Arellano and Driscoll also teamed with Tyler Swanson and Neri on the first-place 200 freestyle relay (1:37.96).

Lyman Hall is still looking for its first win at 0-5. Hand improved to 3-1.
