Rockets on Senior Night!

Boys Swimming & Diving (6-0) Rockets Stay Undefeated!
1/19/2016 @ Newton North  W
1/22/2016 @ Framingham W 105-81

From Coach Cole:
Boys Swimming and Diving remained undefeated at 6-0 after beating Newton North and Framingham this week.  Framingham, last year's Central/South champion, jumped to a 10 point lead after Needham's A medley relay was disqualified for an early relay exchange, a 12 point swing.  Framingham came in first place in the first 7 events, but Needham's depth and several 2-3 finishes kept the meet close (scoring is 8-4-2 for relays and 6-4-3-2-1 for individual events). 

 Down 12 with 5 events to go, freshman Henry Keegan and junior Greg Barboy finished 1-2 in the 500 freestyle and the relay team of Collin Allen, Nick Lombardo, Sergey Sonkin, and Jack Higgins out-touched Framingham's A relay by .22 seconds to tie the score at 70.  Backstrokers Zibing Zhang, Andrei Treil, and Eric Zhu swept the event and then Jack Higgins, Collin Allen, and Johnny Shia finished 1-2-4 in the breaststroke to seal the win.  Sergey Sonkin, Greg Barboy, Eric Zhu, and Zibing Zhang fed off the momentum and won the 400 freestyle relay to close out the meet 105-81.

The team finishes the duel meet season with home meets against Brookline and Wellesley at 7 pm on Tuesday and Friday this week.
