Section 9’s boys state swimming and diving meet team

I caught up with Newburgh Free Academy junior Juan Peticco after practice today. The Section 9 champion in both the 200 and 500-yard freestyle events, Peticco will compete in both at the state meet in Buffalo this weekend.

Look for a story on Peticco’s journey to the state meet in Wednesday’s paper.

Newburgh likes to steer its younger swimmers toward the distance events, as it’s a little easier for 12-year-olds to compete there than it is against 18-year-olds in the sprint events. Peticco thrived there thanks to his intuitive understanding of pacing as well as his relentless nature in fighting through the pain of the 500 freestyle.

He will be one of many representing Section 9 at the state meet. Here is the full Section 9 delegation and their top times this season.

  • NYSPHSAA boys swimming and diving championships
  • At Erie Community College, Buffalo
  • Friday: Swimming preliminaries and diving
