NEWARK, NJ - On Tuesday afternoon, the Livingston Lancers boys' swim team shut out Science Park with a win in every event. The final score of the meet was 64-22 in favor of Livingston.

After swimming against each other in the Essex County Swimming Championships, Livingston and Science Park met again for a duel competition. Starting off the meet with a victory in the 200 Medley Relay were Iko Mikadze, Stanley Chu, Ilya Vasilyev, and Mike Bao of Livingston swimming a 1:54.01. Jeff Xie, recovering from a shoulder injury, won the 200 Freestyle for Livingston in 2:18.26. Livingston's Stanley Chu won the 200 Individual Medley in 2:28.11. Ilya Vasilyev lead the 50 Freestyle in 25.92. Vasilyev also won the 100 Freestyle in 1:06.57, again for Livingston.

Iko Mikadze claimed first in the 100 Butterfly with a time of 57.26 and in the 100 Backstroke with a 1:02.00. Livingston's Stanley Chu, Jeff Xie, Brian Lee, and Mike Bao cheered each other on in the 200 Freestyle relay, which they won with a 1:54.76. Jeff Xie took first in the 100 Breaststroke with a 1:15.45.

Ending the successful meet for Livingston with a win in the 400 Freestyle Relay were Ilya Vasilyev, Mike Bao, Marshall Cohen, and Iko Mikadze, swimming a 4:10.36.

"We did well in the Essex County Champs as a team and our swimmers are doing pretty well today despite the losses. We definitely could practice more, but now it's best to just cheer on my teammates." said Science swimmer Louis Grier.

The Livingston boys have lost some key swimmers throughout the season, including powerhouse Eefine Chang, but they have been pretty much unfazed. "The guys as a team suffered some setbacks. We've lost a few swimmers, but it's personally nice to see a small group together. We have about ten guys now and we're just looking to finish the season strong." said Livingston swimmer Marshall Cohen.
