-From Coach Cole

The Boys Swimming and Diving Team moved to 6-0 with two strong wins last week against Newton North and Framingham.  On Friday, the team had 39 season best swims and 11 Sectional or State qualifying swims.  Junior Zibing Zhang won the 200 IM and 500 freestyle in State qualifying times.  Sophomore Henry Keegan was also a double-event winner in the 200 freestyle and 100 breaststroke, both in sectional qualifying times.  Senior Captain Jack Higgins, already owner of the school record in the 100 breaststroke, won the 100 freestyle in the 4th fastest time in school history.  

Junior Sergey Sonkin was first in the 100 butterfly (Sectionals) and second in the 50 freestyle (States).    Sophomore Ben Shapiro won diving with a sectional qualifying score and classmate Andrei Treil won the 100 backstroke with a sectional qualifying time.  Other sectional qualifying swims were posted by senior Nick Lombardo in the 50 free, junior Eric Zu in the 100 free, and Andrei Treil in the 200 IM.  

The team goes against Brookline on Tuesday (at BHS 4:00) and Wellesley on Friday (at Babson College 7:00) in its quest to improve upon last year's 7-1 record.
