Two of the Onondaga High School League's top boys swim teams went head-to-head Thursday when Jamesville-DeWitt/CBA went up against Mexico.
Despite an early break, the Brothers could not match the Tigers' versatility over the course of the entire meet and took a 102-84 defeat.
J-D/CBA did not win the opening 200 medley relay upon first glance. But when officials determined that Mexico left the block too soon on one of the relay legs, the Tigers suffered a disqualification.
Garrett Farcihione, Russ Farchione, Brian Daley and Cole Speidel did post a strong time of 1:47.80, and J-D/CBA followed with Eric Jorgensen earning two individual titles as he took the 200 freestyle (1:50.34) and swam the 500 freestyle in 5:03.49. Also, Garrett Farchione won the 100 butterfly (59.24 seconds) and Russ Farchione took the 100 breaststroke in 1:07 flat.
Mexico absorbed all this, and slowly worked back into the lead by the 200 freestyle relay (1:37.27), then clinched the meet with Josh Russo (57.98 seconds) and Logan Killian (58.89 seconds) going 1-2 in the 100 freestyle. Killian also won the 50 freestyle and helped the Tigers claim the 400 freestyle relay (3:37.70) to end the meet.
