WARREN, NJ - Governor Livingston boys swimming defeated neighboring rival New Providence in an exciting showdown. A dominating force took first in the 200 Medley Relay, consisting of Ellis Sartorio, Chris Rampaul-Pino, David Martinez, and Duytam Vu. Sartorio later took the first place finish in the 100 Back, while team mate Jason Paprocki grabbed first in the 100 Free.

The boys exerted this tremendous force throughout the meet, creating several 1st/ 2nd place sweeps. These included the 50 Free (Jason Paprocki/ Duytam Vu), the 100 Fly (Chris Rampaul-Pino/ David Martinez), and the 200 Free Relay (J. Paprocki, D. Martinez, D. Wallace, and D. Vu/ C. Rampaul-Pino, J. Sternberg, A. Du, and J. Pitingolo). Second place finishers were Dylan Wallace (200 Free), David Martinez (200 IM), Dylan Wallace (500 Free), and Chris Rampaul-Pino (100 Breast).

"The team really came together under the leadership of captains Jimmy (Pitingolo), Duytam (Vu), and Brett (O'Brien)," said Head Coach David Closs. "It's always nice to swim against a neighboring rival with a similar depth of talent....If the 200 Medley Relay was swam two years ago, it would be the team record. As it stands, they are close enough to break it by about a second...I'm looking forward to this Thursday's meet when we swim against Summit."  

Governor Livingston Swimming will face off against Summit HS this coming Thursday 12/21 at the Morris-Union Jointure Tokash Pool.
