In one respect the meet was done early for the Weston High boys swim team when it hosted Joel Barlow last week.

Even with six events remaining the Trojans elected to swim most of them unofficially, receiving no points. Before that, however, a number of swimmers who had yet to score points this season stepped up as the hosts cruised to a 93-78 win on Tuesday, Jan. 8.

Weston not only won the first seven events, it had multiple scorers in each.

Asher Greenberg, Eli Carter, Clayton Morikawa and Ian McLoughlin led the way for the team in the 200 medley relay with a winning time of one minute, 54.33 seconds. Right behind them was the team of Lydia Sykes, Garrick Tsui, Dan Solinsky and Vincent Walters in 1:57.08 for a one-two Trojan finish.

Weston dominated the next two events, taking the top three spots in each. Getting his first win of the day, Jordan Berger finished the 200 free in 1:52.14. Gabe Imber also broke the two-minute mark in 1:59.41 and Adam Winikoff was third in 2:02.03.

Hugo Sykes led the way in the 200 individual medley, coming in at 2:17.91. Next was Carter in 2:20.84 and Marty Imber was third less than a second later in 2:21.80.

Berger got another win in the 50 free in 23.37. Third went to Walters in 25.91 and Jackson Marvin’s 26.19 was good for fourth.

Weston swept the diving event with Dean Rapp, Misha Moffly and Toby Gerroll taking the top three places. Another win was in the 100 butterfly with Morikawa finishing in 1:00.16. David Fleming followed in second in 1:01.91 and Solinsky was fourth in 1:04.65.

Barlow’s first win was in the 100 free but the Trojans took the next three places in the event, all in less than a minute. Greenberg followed in 56.22 and Marvin was next in 58.13. Fourth went to Matt Policano in 59.03.

Weston swam the 500 free and 200 free relay unofficially, allowing Barlow to take the points. It went one-two in the 100 backstroke with Greenberg leading the way in 1:05.16. Lydia Sykes swam a 1:06.59 and Weston swam the 100 breaststroke and the 400 free relay unofficially since victory was already guaranteed.

Weston now, 2-1, hosts Bunnell-Stratford on Tuesday at 5 p.m.
