Boys swimming: Victory is fourth straight

A final meet of sorts was also a productive one for the Weston High boys swim team when it took on Oxford last week.

Swimming their last home meet of the season, the Trojans recognized Dean Rapp, Gabe Imber, Marty Imber, Jordan Berger, David Fleming, Ian McLoughlin, Adam Winikoff, Elliot Eglash, Brett Gurman and Lydia Sykes during Senior Night on Tuesday, Feb. 5. They and the rest of their teammates racked up the points as the Trojans outscored the competition 92-83 in the Weston High pool.

The meet marked the fourth straight win for Weston. It is now 7-2 overall.

Weston, which took first in the majority of events, got its first victory in the 200-yard medley relay with Lydia Sykes, Berger, Garrick Tsui and Vincent Walters combining to finish in one minute, 52.41 seconds. Also scoring points were Hugo Sykes, Dan Solinsky, Eli Carter and Jackson Marvin in third with a 1:56.63.

The Wolverines won the 200 free but Weston garnered more points by taking the next three spots. Asher Greenberg finished in 2:06.89 and Fleming had a 2:08.82. Fourth went to McLoughlin in 2:09.51.

Dominating the 200 individual medley, the Trojans got the win as well as three of the top four spots. Clayton Morikawa led the way in 2:14.99 with Gabe Imber right behind him in 2:18.15. Fourth went to Winikoff in 2:22.17.

Marty Imber won the 50 free in 24.87 and McLoughlin was third in 26.14. Eglash took fourth in 28.10.

The diving event featured a one-two-three finish for the Trojans as Rapp, Lucas Billing and Gurman placed in order. Three also scored for the hosts in the 100 butterfly as Berger led with a 54.37. Morikawa was second with a 1:01.63 and Fleming was fourth in 1:04.40.

The Trojans continued their run with another strong performance in the 100 free, which Winikoff won in 53.64. Marvin was third in 57.89 and Walters followed in 59.28.

Following Oxford’s win it the 500 free, Hugo Sykes was second in 5:24.37. Also scoring was Solinsky in just under six minutes in 5:59.77.

Weston’s last points came in the 200 free relay . Berger, Gabe Imber, McLoughlin and Winikoff finished in 1:36.99 for the win and third went to Greenberg, Lydia Sykes, Hugo Sykes and Morikawa in 1:43.36.

With victory in the meet assured, Weston opted to swim the final three events (100 backstroke, 100 breaststroke and 400 free relay) unofficially and receive no points, which did allow Oxford to catch up a bit but with no chance of catching the hosts.

Weston finishes the regular season on Tuesday at Masuk at 4 p.m.
