MILLBURN, NJ - The Millburn High School Boys Swim Team completed its successful 2016-2017 campaign on the short end of a 100.5-69.5 defeat to eventual champion Scotch Plains-Fanwood in the 2017 NJSIAA North 2, Group B Championship semifinal contest held on February 14th.  With then loss, the Millers ended the season with 11 wins and only three losses.

Millburn, which is helmed by Coach Mike Foglyano, entered the State tournament at 10-2 after consecutive regular season setbacks to Morristown High School and Seton Hall Prep but regrouped for an impressive 100-70 win over Princeton High School in the opening round of the State playoffs on February 10th.  The Millers crew had drawn a tough bracket loaded with some of the top swim teams in the State.  The victory over Princeton had set the scene for the semifinal matchup with Scotch Plains-Fanwood, which entered the contest as the 8th ranked State program, according to  With the victory over Millburn, Scotch Plains-Fanwood advanced to the Public B Final where it ultimately fell to Mainland, the top ranked team in the State.

In its victory over Princeton, the Millers received spectacular first-place performances from junior Oliver Pickering (1:50.25 in 200 Free and 4:55.91 in 500 Free), junior Teddy Maguire (55.95, 100 Fly), and sophomore Eric Wang (59.63, 100 Breast).  Millburn also earned first place finishes from its 200 IM Relay team of junior Justin Mon, Eric Wang, junior Evan Ng and Oliver Pickering (1:41.75), and the 200 Free Relay team of junior Henry Chen, sophomore Kyle Silbert, freshman Allen Zhu, and sophomore Anshul Kamath (1:35.74).

In Millburn’s second-round matchup vs. Scotch Plains-Fanwood, the Sectional champions were simply too much for the Millers as the Raiders won eight of 11 events in racing out to an insurmountable lead.  First place performances for Millburn came from Evan Ng (5:01.27, 500 Free), Eric Wang (1:00.68, 100 Breast) and the 400 Free Relay team of Kyle Silbert, Allen Zhu, senior Zach ElShaer and Evan Ng (3:39.41).

This season was a proud culmination of hard work for the Millburn squad’s senior class, led by captains Zach ElShaer, Dan Kanef, Matt Myers, Steven Singer and Matt Weintraub, which produced four inspiring seasons in finishing 40-10 overall (35-6 in regular season competition).  The team advanced to the second round or better in the State playoffs in each of its four seasons with this year’s 11 wins serving as the most in the senior class’s tenure.

While this season ended earlier than it had hoped, the Millburn Boys Swim Team will have very high expectations next season with nearly all of this year’s roster returning to swim for Coach Foglyano.  In fact, swimmers returning to the team next year were responsible for 15 Top 10 finishes at this year’s Super Essex Conference (SEC) Championships held in January.  The Millers will use that momentum as it sets its sights on next year’s SEC Championships and a deeper run into the NJSIAA State playoffs.
