WAYNE, NJ – Depth is the most important thing a team can have in swimming, and considering that Passaic Tech has nearly 3,000 students in the building, the Bulldogs were bound to have it on their boys swimming team.
As a result, the boys swimming season is over at Morristown, despite the Colonials winning 8 of 11 events. A high volume of second and third place finishes vaulted the top-seeded and 15-0 Techsters to a 92-78 victory over Morristown in Monday afternoon’s NJSIAA North 1, Group A tournament. The Colonials closed out their season with a dual meet record of 11-3.
Tommy Cromie scored double-victories in specialty events, winning both the 100 fly (52.47) and the 100 breaststroke (1:01.89) races. Justin Viotto also took home a pair of wins in the 200 freestyle (1:50.60) and the 500 free (5:08.88) distance events.
"The boys had a very successful year to date and even though we are out of Team State we still have 5 boys moving on to the Meet of Champions" said MHS swim coach Donna Gelegonya . "I'm excited to see where they finish up".
As to the future of the MHS boys swim team, Gelegonya said, "We are losing seven senior boys which will have a big impact on our team next year. We will have a good group senior leaders next year and we will just have to wait and see what freshman come in."
