ENDWELL, NY – From the freezing football field to the warm confines of the Maine-Endwell Aquatics Center for some girls swimming and diving.
M-E and Union-Endicott.
Opened with the 200 Medley Relay.
Final lap, freestyle stroke.
M-E’s Olivia Richeda in lane 5.
She holds off U-E’s Maddy Reynolds.
2:22.25 is the winning time for the Spartans team of Anna Calleo, Claire Peters, Ashley Morgus, and Richeda.
On to the 200 Freestyle and Leah Krise taking a decisive lead over the rest of the field.
No one even in view here.
Krise wins with a time of 2:22.51.
And now the chaos that is the 50 Free.
A sprint of a race and it is tight.
3 girls neck and neck.
In the end, Ashley Morgus wins on Senior Night with a time of 27.31, with fellow senior Shannon Guilfoyle taking 2nd for M-E, and U-E’s Lilly Gill-Martiny in 3rd.
In the diving portion, M-E’s Destiny Ayers dominated as she posted a career-best score of 175.35.
Last race I could catch was the 100 Butterfly, which featured Spartans star Maria Pignatelli.
Pignatelli got out to a large lead and was basically racing for her own record.
She owns the pool record with a time of 58.40.
Just misses it here as she wins this race with a time of 59.85.
In the end, Maine-Endwell would keep tallying up points to win the meet by a final score of 92-56.
