WG swimmers return, stay unbeaten

As it is shaping up, the West Genesee boys swim team's Jan. 20 meet with Liverpool might decide the CNY Counties League championship.

Prior to that, though, the Wildcats would get a pair of tune-ups, beginning last Wednesday night with a home meet against Rome Free Academy that turned into a 94-77 victory over the Black Knights.

Ian Bushnell, Pat O'Donnell, Mike O'Donnell and Tyler Halsey teamed up to win the 200 medley relay in a time of 1:58.89. Later, in the 200 freestyle relay, Bushnell, Mike Cruz, Andy McFlynn and Spencer Tingley won in 1:45.43.

O'Donnell, on his own, tore through the 100 butterfly in 55.73 seconds, and Ben Seketa took his turn in the 200 individual medley, winning in 2:06.88. Josh Byrne dominated on the diving board, earning 232 points.

Elsewhere, Connor Agen was first in the 200 freestyle (2:00.95), Kevin Taylor prevailed in the 50 freestyle (24.94 seconds) and Carson Elias earned a time of 50.18 seconds in the 100 freestyle. Tyler Olson won the 500 freestyle (5:24.61) as Brendon Marks took the 100 backstroke (1:02.27) and Shawn Davern (1:15.35) beat the field in the 100 breaststroke.

WG (5-0, 4-0 league) would have one more contest, at Utica Proctor on Tuesday, before the Liverpool showdown.
