WARREN, NJ - The Governor Livingston girls swim team resumed their season after winter break  on Tuesday with a solid win over Kent Place, finishing first in ten of eleven events and running up a score of 123-47.  

Approaching the midway point in the season, Head Coach David Closs decided to mix up the event roster a bit, having swimmers mostly abandon their stronger events to swim new ones and giving some of the more untested swimmers a chance leave the bench.

 "It's nice to get a lot of the kids in multiple events, having them do events they don't normally do," said Closs.  "You're never quite sure what you're going to get with Kent Place - sometimes they have some really good swimmers. They are just having a bit of a down year, and our girls came out and did a really nice job today."
