The midseason Section 9 boys’ swimming and diving report has been posted on Section9swim.com. You can check it out here.
An asterisk next to a simmer’s name means he has qualified for the state meet. A “9″ means the swimmer has qualified for the Section 9 meet.
Here are our local state meet qualifiers through the first half of the season:
James Crumm, Minisink Valley, 1:46.86
James Crumm, Minisink Valley, 48.30
Hudson Carroll, New Paltz, 54.78
Nick Rusek, Warwick, 510.90
Nicholas Fry, Newburgh Free Academy, 455.70
Chris Deaver, Warwick, 434.80
Brian Green, Warwick, 434.30
After about two weeks off from competition, there are six dual meets going on this afternoon. I’ll post the updated standings here later tonight after the results are reported.
