The swim and dive team at Wethersfield High School scored an important conference victory over Newington last Tuesday, Feb. 22.
Of the 12 events, Wethersfield won eight, including two relays to hold off a strong Nor’easter team 94-89 at Newington High School.
Eagles senior Tanner Bradbury chalked up two individual victories, winning the 200 Yard Individual Medley and the 100 Yard Fly. Bradbury was also part of both relay winners, teaming with Zackary Crevier, Joseph Andino, and Jack Kulpa to win the 200 Yard Freestyle Relay, and Owen Powers, Colin Pace, and Jack Lynch to win the 400 Yard Freestyle Relay.
Pace took home an individual win in the 200 Yard Freestyle, Crevier won the 50 Yard Freestyle, and Kulpa won the 100 Yard Freestyle.
The Eagles also took the top-two spots in the diving portion, as Chase Dumais paced first and Lilliana Garcia placed second.
Newington posted three individual wins and a relay win.
Kuba Latawiec finished first in the 500 freestyle, Filip Nadratowski won the 100 Yard Backstroke, and Bryce Turner took the top spot in the 100 Yard Breaststroke.
Latawiec, Nadratowski, Turner, and Wyatt Smith combined to win the 200 Yard Medley Relay.
The 200 Medley Relay was the first race, which put the Eagles in an early hole.
Wethersfield head coach Lee Schwartzman said it was an interesting start to the meet, adding, “[We] were immediately behind the plan. But then the seniors did what the seniors are supposed to do. They took control of the meet and we won pretty soundly.”
The win improved the Eagles to 8-2.
