CBA swimmers survive J-D scare, win 95-91

Schmitt breaks two pool records, anchors decisive relay

— While all this was going on, Fayetteville-Manlius had its own tight and competitive opener, but lost to Liverpool 93-90 at the Nottingham High School pool where the Hornets have home meets.

Just like J-D did against CBA, the Hornets kept it close with a long series of second and third-place finishes to make up for the fact that the Warriors won most of the races.

Katie Pechacek, though, did break through in the 200 freestyle, blazing to a time of 2:05.43, and she also dominated the 500 freestyle, winning in 5:32.99. To end the meet, Pechacek teamed with Caroline Wilson, Morgan Way and Juile Barger to win the 400 freestyle relay in 4:05.69.

Madison Sestak (100 butterfly, 100 breaststroke) and Madeline Murphy (200 IM, 100 butterfly) both won twice for the Warriors, leaving F-M at 0-1 as it visits another big power, West Genesee, on Wednesday. CBA pays a visit to Skaneateles after J-D hosts the combined Manlius-Pebble Hill/Westhill squad.
