Liverpool swimmers beat Auburn, 101-80

Moving to 6-1 on the season, the Liverpool boys swim team took on Auburn Wednesday night and mostly relied on its depth to piece together a 101-80 victory over the Maroons.

Cory Spado won three times early in the meet. First, he teamed with Jake Burns, Alex Perfitt and Phil MacLeod as the Warriors won the 200 medley relay in a time of 1:45.21.

Then, on his own, Spado worked his way to first place in the 200 individual medley (2:10.07) and, in the 100 butterfly, tore to victory in 54.56 seconds.

Dan Roche was superb on the diving board, accumulating 239.10 points. Other titles went to Nick Hens, who won the 100 backstroke (1:06.01), and Garrett Clarke, who earned the top spot in the 100 breaststroke in 1:10.24.

Liverpool earned a wide range of second and third-place finishes to amass points against Auburn's top individual efforts as well as wins in the other two relays. The Maroons' Adam Zelehowsky and Connor Kilmer both won twice - Zelehowsky in the 200 freestyle (1:50.08) and 500 freestyle (5:07.40), Kilmer in the 50 freestyle (23.36 seconds) and 100 freestyle (50.99 seconds).

On the same day, Cicero-North Syracuse lost to Oswego 102-75, its only early win coming when Billy Werksman piled up 224.10 points on the diving board.

In the 200 freestyle relay, Werksman joined Ricky Blackburn, Tyler Smith and Ben Mozo for a victory in 1:42.05, and he would also aid the Northstars as it took the 400 freestyle relay in 3:31.82. Oswego's Drake Becksted led his side with two relay titles and individual wins in the 200 freestyle (1:53.30) and 100 breaststroke (1:02.15).
