CBA, F-M, J-D swimmers pick up meet wins

Pushing its win streak to 31 consecutive meets, the Christian Brothers Academy girls swim team went to Mexico Wednesday night and again proved too powerful as it earned a 92-80 victory over the Tigers.

As the starting point, Kathryn Coughlin, Destiny Cerlanek, Maggie Fletcher and Summer Schmitt got together in the 200 medley relay and won that race in a time of 1:57.54.

Right after that was done, Fletcher returned to the pool and, in the 200 freestyle, nearly broke the two-minute mark as she won in 2:00.03. She would also finish first in the 100 freestyle in 55.65 seconds.

Coughlin swam the 50 freestyle in a top time of 26.65 seconds, while Schmitt did break the one-minute mark winning the 100 butterfly in 59.74 seconds. Zoe McCauley chimed in to claim the 200 individual medley in 2:26.08 as Kelly Bewley earned 163.95 points in diving.

With all those early victories, CBA tacked on one more in the 200 freestyle relay, where Elizabeth Catalano joined Cerlanek, Zoe McCauley and Lexi McCauley in posting a victory in 1:51.90.

All this followed CBA's successful venture at the New Hartford Invitational, where Schmitt won both the 200 IM and 100 backstroke and helped her team win the 200 medley and 400 freestyle relays, too.

Fayetteville-Manlius went to Baldwinsville Thursday night and moved to 4-1 in the CNY Counties League (4-2 overall) with a 52-42 victory over the Bees.

Hadley Cameron-Carter earned first place in the 200 IM (2:25.69), then claimed the 500 freestyle in 5:38.61. She also helped the Hornets claim the 200 medley relay in a quick time of 1:58.98 and the 200 freestyle relay team take first place in 1:49.69.

Melissa James and Stephanie Wilcoxen swam in both relays, and took events on their own - James swimming the 100 breaststroke in 1:11.62, Wilcoxen claiming the 100 freestyle in 58.51 seconds. Delaney Pfohl, who was in the 200 medley, won the 100 butterfly in 1:06.92, while Katie Pechacek joined Cameron-Carter, James and Wilcoxen in the 200 freestyle relay effort.
