It was a battle of area rivals, but when it comes to boys swimming, the nine-time defending Metro League champion Tigers are pretty much the dominant team.
That was evident again on Wednesday as the Tigers won all 11 events and swept the top three positions in five individual events en route to a 135-33 victory.
Max Haney, Gavin Crews and Kaz Sieja left the meet with four firsts for the Tigers. The trio teamed up in the 200 medley relay with Braden Falvo to open the meet with a first-place time of 1:50.50. Crews and Haney also teamed with Falvo and Evan Koch to end the meet with a first-place time of 3:39.16 in the 400 freestyle relay. Finally, Sieja teamed with Jacob Shanahan, Koch and Luke DeFina to win the 200 freestyle relay (1:43.67).
Individually, Crews won the 200 freestyle (1:58.83) and the 100 butterfly (1:00.81) while Haney won the 50 freestyle (23.97) and the 100 backstroke (57.38). Sieja won his individual events in the the 100 breaststroke (1:10.60) and in in the 200 individual medley (2:15.10). Other Fenton individuals to win an event were Koch in the 100 freestyle (56.04) and Zach Michelson in the 500 freestyle (5:30.42).
Fenton grabbed all the individual seconds as well. Falvo had a second in the 100 butterfly (1:05.17) and the 200 individual medley (2:15.61) while Mike Crane took second in the 500 freestyle (5:57.53) and the 100 breaststroke (1:18.49). Shanahan also had two individual seconds in the 50 freestyle (25.84) and in the 500 freestyle (5:30.42). The other individual seconds were earned by Koch in the 200 freestyle (2:03.97) and Tristan Bakker in the 100 backstroke (1:07.70).
The Tigers nearly swept the top three positions in all of the individual events. Holly kept that from happening by taking two thirds. Rockafellow Zachary took third in the 100 butterfly (1:10.04) and Kade Kivari took third in the 100 breaststroke (1:23.64).
