Having moved its home meets to Henninger High School’s pool, the Fayetteville-Manlius girls swim team welcomed its two closest neighbors for back-to-back meets, where the visitors won by equal margins.

It started with Christian Brothers Academy meeting the Hornets Tuesday night, and with its trio of individual stars, the Brothers prevailed by a score of 98-78.

Summer Schmitt and Maggie Fletcher both won a pair of events. Schmitt tore through the 200 freestyle in 1:56.78, and then went to the 100 butterfly, where she again put up a quick time of 57.31 seconds to finish well out in front.

As for Fletcher, she worked in the sprints, needing just 22.52 seconds to beat the field in the 50 freestyle and also winning the 100 freestyle in 55.35 seconds.

Kathryn Coughlin, on her own, was first in the 200 individual medley (2:20.87), right after helping Courtney Finkbeiner, Mary Frances Ierlan and Mary Spizuoco claim the 200 medley relay. Annie Fletcher was victorious in the 500 freestyle in 5:47.70.
