Call it a tidal wave, a tsunami, or even as the surfers might say " gnarly barrels, bro", the boys varsity swim team rolled over the competition yesterday at the annual CISAC Swim Meet at the Beckerman Center. The final tally was Hamden Hall 702.50 2. Williams 444.50 3. Christian Heritage 183 4. MacDuffie 175
The boys squad is led by a core of outstanding swimmers in Sam Lovejoy, Duncan Farquharson, Michael Ferneini, Steven Zhang, Ronnie Khanuja, and Joe Tenedine. But the Hornets also have the depth to not only win today, but to go deep at the Fairchester League Meet and New Englands. Demir Uslu, Spencer McCleery, Liam Kohler, John Bazaar, Connor Blackwood, and Nathan Thomas are just some of the swimmers who also pick up points on a regular basis.200 Medley Relay HH 1:45.51 Duncan Farquharson, Michael Fernieni, Sam Lovejoy, Joe Tenedine200 Free Frenieni HH 1:54.49200 IM Lovejoy HH 2:08.1350 Free Spencer McClerry HH 24.37100 Fly Farquharson HH 56.61100 Free Tenendine HH 53.04500 Free Fernieni HH 5:09.97200 Free Relay HH 1:39.09 Ronnie Khanuja, Steven Zhang, McCleery, Lovejoy100 Back Farquharson HH 54.90100 Breast Zhang HH 1:04.17400 Free Relay HH 3:32.93 Farquharson, Fernieni, Tenedine, ZhangThe girls squad also battled hard yesterday and finished a very respectabkle third place, barely edged out from taking the silver. 1.

At the break, Coaches Ken Pierson and Ann Kohler honored the seniors, Liv Caldarella, Abby Malin, Julia Moore-Aiello, Autumn Boyce, Sage Giacomini, Ronnie Khanuja, and Gemyla Huang, and thanked them for their dedication to the program over the years.
The program will miss these seniors; however, the majority of both squads returns next year, so the future should continue to look bright.
Congratulations to the entire co-ed program and coaches, as they now prepare for the FAA and New England meets on the upcoming weekends.
