WARREN, NJ - The Governor Livingston girls swim team emerged victorious after a spirited battle with neighboring rival New Providence on Tuesday night. Both seasoned swimmers and talented newcomers helped the team walk away with a score of 102 - 67.
 
“It’s always a dogfight when we swim against New Providence and it’s always fun to swim against your local rival – the kids really get fired up,” said Head Coach David Closs.   “It was our first real ‘serious meet’ of the season and we knew it could go down to the end of the wire.  We just got the better of them today with a little more depth and a few more first places here and there.”
 
The 200 medley relay team of Bailey Gold, Nicole Biegel, Rachel Heeren and Sarah Polizzi grabbed the first win of the evening, and the team of Sarah Montagna, Danielle Curtis, Serena Shen and Ashley Chang added third place points as well. 
 
 
First place finishes by Aidan Donahue (200 free, 500 free), Bailey Gold (100 Butterfly) and a 1-2-3 sweep of the 100 backstroke by Rachel Heeren, Bailey Gold and Taylor Rooney helped to run up the score.  Major relay points were scored in the 200 free relay by the first place winning team of Ashley Chang, Nicole Biegel, Aidan Donahue and Sarah Polizzi and second place finishers Sena Hur, Julie Woo, Danielle Curtis and Phoebe Kim
 
Closs was happy to see his returning swimmers pick up where they left off, and was impressed with the efforts of the younger swimmers as well.  “The captains always lead the way, and we’re really happy with our seniors,” he said, pointing to senior captains Nicole Biegel, Sarah Polizzi and Serena Shen.  “It really was a total team effort by the girls today.”
 
The team will meet up with Summit at home on Thursday  at 7:45 p.m.
