SOUTHINGTON – The Southington girls swim team appears ready for postseason competition.
The Blue Knights closed out an undefeated regular season this week with a 92-84 victory over Bristol Eastern to give the team plenty of momentum heading into the CCC postseason next week.
Meghan Hammarlund was a double winner, taking first in the individual medley and the 100 backstroke, while Ella Nadeau (100 breaststroke), Andie Nadeau (100 freestyle) and Maddie Symecko (100 butterfly) all took first in their respective events.
Lizy Bealieu was the top diver, recording a final score of 206.60.
Sacred Heart 87, St. Paul 84: The Falcons came out strong on Friday, taking first place in nine of the 12 events, and held a 65-60 lead after finishing in first and third in the 200 freestyle relay. But the team’s lack of depth showed down the stretch, as Sacred Heart reclaimed the lead in the 100 backstroke, and never gave it back.
St. Paul finishes the regular season with a 5-4 record, with three of those losses coming against Sacred Heart.
“[I’m] proud of the girls and am looking forward to seeing the entire squad back for next season,” head coach Karim Mabrouk said of his seniorless squad. “[I’m] also hopeful that the team will expand with the potential addition of a couple of new swimmers.”
Goodwin Tech 6, Prince Tech 0: The Gladiators made the most of their regular season finale, especially Desaraya Trusty, who put home three goals to walk away with a hat trick.
Megan Lukaszewski, Genesis Pagan and Asia Vibert all scored a goal apiece for Goodwin Tech, while Trust, Madison Ounthongdy and Angelina Cirigliano added assists. Cirigliano had two in the victory.
Ariana White had a quiet day in net for the Gladiators, not needing to make a single save thanks to a suffocating defense, and an offense that continuously remained on the attack.
Goodwin Tech 4, Cheney Tech 1: Cristian Guzman had himself an afternoon, racking up three goals in a dominant victory for the Gladiators. Angel Patino also found the back of the net for Goodwin Tech.
Aidan Morett made five saves in net for the Gladiators, with his lone goal allowed coming off the foot of Cheney Tech’s Alejandro Chavarro.
