PERTH AMBOY, NJ -Standout swimmer Tim Kostolansky led his Summit teammates to a 95-75 victory over the Chatham boys on Friday in the North II, Public B state sectional final at the Raritan Bay YMCA.
Kostolansky easily won 100 butterfly and the 200 individual medley and also was part of two winning relay teams for Summit, the defending state champion.
Chatham did, however, keep it interesting with strong performances from Trey Blaskey and Drew Macchia.
"That's the closest anybody has come to beating Summit this year," DiGiacomo said. "The majority of my team swam as fast as they could. I told them on the bus coming here that they needed to swim their best and they nearly did."
Macchia and Blaskey finished in a two-way tie for first place in the 50 free in 23.01. Macchia won the 100 freestyle in 50.87 and Blaskey won the 100 breaststroke in 1:05.51.
Chatham's 200 freestyle relay team of Alex Sudyn, Cam Blazoski, Corey Duren and Trey Blaskey won in 1:34.79.
