J-D swimmers upend CBA, snare league title

Coyne sisters lead Rams; Schmitt, Coughlin set pool records

— Also, Kalie Coyne swam the 100 butterfly in 1:01.79, which wins most races – but not this one, as Schmitt, in 57.33 seconds, set the J-D pool record. Later in the meet, Coughlin set a second pool mark in the 100 breaststroke, prevailing in 1:07.32 as the Rams’ Hailey Schultz (1:14.17) was second.

Despite this, and despite Schmitt breaking the one-minute mark in the 100 backstroke (59.40 seconds, to be exact) to beat Sophia Farchione’s solid time of 1:03.43, J-D clinched the meet, and the league title, when Farchione, Coombs, Bess Murrad and Marissa Potaminos claimed the 400 freestyle relay in 4:01.81.

The story will continue next week at Nottingham, where the Section III championships will get handed out and berths in the Nov. 16-17 state meet at Ithaca College will be at stake, too.
