SCOTCH PLAINS/FANWOOD, NJ -- Scotch Plains-Fanwood's boys and girls swim teams are picking up where they left off last year. The boys, who swam in the state final last year, and the girls, the defending Union County Champions, are both 3-1 on the season. Two major reasons for their overall success are Matt London and Julia Bonhote, who are this week's Joint Motion Physical Therapy Athletes of the Week

Matt London, a junior, swept the sprint freestyle events vs. Westfield by winning the 50 Free in 22.39 and the 100 Free in 49.82. He also swam on two relays that both finished second. On Tuesday against Cranford, he anchored the winning 200 Free Relay.

"Matt came to swim today (against Westfield). He was very confident heading into all his races and put up some great times," said Coach Jess Hulnik. "Talking with Matt heading into Westfield, he really felt good."

Julia Bonhote, a sophomore, also swept the sprint events vs. Westfield by winning the the 50 Free in 24.86 and the 100 Free in 54.07.

"Julia had a great meet as well," Coach Hulnik said. "While she will usually swim the sprint events, she is a multi-event threat and can be used in several different events if needed."
