LIVINGSTON, NJ - A first place finish in every single race was earned by the Millburn boys and girls swim team on Tuesday night at Newark Academy. The boys defeated West Essex 113-57 and the girls won handily 132-35.

The boys' team is 8-4 on their season with Tuesday's win. They have had strong, consistent swimming all year long from top to bottom and the meet against West Essex was no different, according to boys' swim coach, Mike Foglyano. Although there was not one Millburn swimmer who came in first in more than one event for the boys, there were a number who had many second and third place finishes earning important points for their team. "This was a total team effort. Since the first meet we had a great season," Coach Foglyano said to his team after the meet. "We've had a great traditional year here at Millburn and this team really has a lot of character."

The boys' team's final regular season meet is against Morristown on Thursday afternoon.

On the girls' side, Lydia Vollavanh had the most consistent first place finishes for her Millburn team. She won the 50 meter free style race and also helped her team win the 200 medley relay and the 400 meter free style relay. The Millers finished their season with an impressive 10-2 record and have dominated the scoreboard at most of those meets. "I knew we had a really strong team. We had a lot of injuries and illness, so it definitely affected each meet, but I know each year that Millburn puts together a good program," Millburn girls' swim Coach Gina Santianna said.

The Millburn girls will compete in a state tournament meet against Summit on Thursday afternoon at the Summit YMCA.
