Many Jamesville-DeWitt/CBA boys swimmers descended upon Nassau County Aquatic Center on Long Island for last weekend’s state swimming and diving championships.
Tyghe Speidel had the Red Rams’ best individual effort, swimming to seventh place in the 100-yard breaststroke in 59.44 seconds, earning him All-American consideration. Ryan Kelley (Fayetteville-Manlius) took 12th place in 1:01.26, with Christian Larrabee (East Syracuse-Minoa) 19th in 1:02.06.
