Cicero-North Syracuse, in its “home” pool at Le Moyne College, met long-time power West Genesee back on Wednesday and, despite some modest success, lost 95-89 to the Wildcats.
In fact, the Northstars won the opening event, the 200 medley relay, where Scott Cooley, Jacob Mekker, Nate Ancona and Steve Cooley finished in a time of 1:53.85.
Nate Ancona went on to claim the 200 IM in 2:25.80, just ahead of WG’s Colin Riley (2:27.68), with Zach Dengos third in 2:30.50. Mekker was second in the 100 backstroke in 1:07.79, with Cooley second (1:12.37) and Dengos third (1:13.21) in the 100 breaststroke.
Mekker returned to help Dan Eager, James Dwyer and Rich Sprancmanis as C-NS got first place in the 400 freestyle relay in 4:04.81. WG had a trio of double winners as Collin Zapisek (50 freestyle, 100 freestyle), Matt O’Donnell (100 butterfly, 100 backstroke) and Mike Gilheney (200 freestyle, 500 freestyle) went to the forefront.
