GARFIELD, NJ -  The Hasbrouck Heights split its dual meet against Garfield High School at the Garfield Boys and Girls Club, with the boys dropping a 79-71 decision, and the girls winning, 96-58, picking up their second win of the season.

Both teams were either missing swimmers, or had swimmers swimming under the weather. The lack of depth on the boys team cost them in the meet, as they won six of nine contested races, but had two races were there were no Hasbrouck Heights swimmers in the pool.  The 500 in which Garfield had three swimmers, gained 13 points for the Boilermakers, enough to turn the meet by itself and 12 from the 200 freestyle relay.  

The girls, with larger numbers, were able to shuffle swimmers around, and in some cases, changes swimmer races due to illness.  The result, however, was still the Lady Aviators biggest win of the season.
