Randolph, which proved to have a strong collection of swimmers, , overpowered the Morris Hills Scarlet Knights, putting up great times for each event.  Both the boy’s and girl's teams held Morris Hills to under 70 points.   

“Both the boys and the girls swam great times for early in the season,” said Assistant Coach Kyle Plucinsky. “They have been practicing extremely hard so we are looking forward to the second half of the season.”

The girls move to 2-2 on the season, while the boys are now 3-1. After a 10-2 season last year for the boys’ team in which they  claimed  the NJSIAA North Group B State Champion title, they are looking to repeat. For the girls, they are seeking to improve on an 8-5 record from the previous year. 

“We have a couple of big meets in January, including  conference and county meets, and a big meet against Roxbury,” said Plucinsky. “We are hoping to have a good seed for states and qualify swimmers for the Meet of Champions.”

With the county meets and states right around the corner, Randolph is looking to stay on the winning track,  and enter those tournaments with momentum from  a strong regular season.

The Rams next meet will be held on January 5th, at CCM against Montville.  After Montville, Randolph will square off in January against their rival Roxbury in a meet crucial as the team's approach states.
