Credits: TAPinto Archive
WARREN, NJ - Gov. Livingston girls swim team came from behind to prevail over Cranford, 90-80, Monday at home. Last year the Lady Highlanders semifinal Sectional Group C win over Cranford was ranked by the Star Ledger as one of the top 10 best meets in New Jersey during the 2015-16 season.  Last night's come from behind win over the avenging Cranford team was no different.
 
GL  went down early and persevered to the end, even when a positive outcome looked like a long shot. However, a 1-3-5 finish in the 100 Backstroke led by Bailey Gold,  followed by a 1-2-3 finish in the 100 Breaststroke led by Nicole Biegel, and first and third finishes in the final event of the day, the 4x100 Freestyle Relay (led by the winning team of Sarah Montagna, Aidan Donahue, Julia Woo and Bailey Gold) turned a late six point deficit into a 10 point victory. 
 
Other first place finishes by GL were  the 200 Freestyle (Aidan Donahue), 100 Butterfly (Bailey Gold) and 500 Freestyle (Sarah Montagna).
 
 
"That was a terrific meet...I told the kids to expect a barnburner," said head coach David Closs.  "We tied Cranford last year in States, and we knew Cranford was going to bring it today and they did. It's always a fun meet between these two teams."
 
"We were sweating it out," he added, referring to the crucial events toward the end of the meet, "but our girls just did fantastic, especially our breaststrokers.  I was particularly proud of Indiana Curtis, a senior girl who had a terrific meet today. It was a great win."
 
The Lady Highlanders remain undefeated with a 6-0 record.  Their next meet is Thursday, Jan. 12 at 3:30 p.m. at Summit.
