MORRISTOWN, NJ – The Morristown High School boys swimming program continued its torrid pace to begin the 2016-17 on Monday night.
The Colonials obliterated an overmatched Mendham squad by a count of 118-47 in its home pool, and won all eleven events on the way. With the victory, Morristown is already off to a 4-0 start this season.
"A lot of our club swimmers were coming off a big swim weekend so some of them were still tired but we expected that," said Assistant coach Bernadette Mehrtens. "Most still had a great race and some even broke school records."
Morristown swimmer Michael Macchia won all four events he was in—two individual and two relay—which included breaking his own school record in the 200-meter inter-medley swim with a time of 2:08.89.
"We had a big meet this weekend and I felt well rested so I decided this meet was a good time to try and go for the record", said Macchia.
Tommy Cromie won a pair of individual events in the 100-meter breaststroke (1:15.97) and the 100-meter fly (1:02.28) races. Justin Viotto took home the 200-meter freestyle with a time of 2:06.80, while Owen Breslin and Derek He won the 50 and 100-meter freestyle races, respectively.
