Medaling in Every Event, Summit H.S. Boys Swim Team Takes Second at 'Counties; Each Relay Team Headed to Prestigious 'MOC'

Summit finished in second place, just 38 points behind Westfield and 142 points ahead of third-place Scotch Plains-Fanwood.

PISCATAWAY, NJ - The Summit High School Boys’ Swim Team finished in second place overall -- topping perennial power Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School for the first time in five years -- at the Union County Championship Meet at the Sonny Werblin Recreation Center. 

Summit finished runner-up to Westfield, which won the event for the incredible 60th time in its 62-year history. The final totals saw the Blue Devils with 439 points, Summit with 401, and Scotch Plains-Fanwood with 259.

While the Hilltoppers fell short of their goal of finally toppling the Westfield dynasty, they came closer than many of their fans had dared to hope, delivering a number of stellar performances in nearly every relay and individual event, and bringing home plenty of hardware in the form of hard-won medals.

All three Summit relay teams delivered performances that qualified for the prestigious “Meet of Champions” that takes place at the end of the season. The 200-yard Medley Relay team of Conor Fagan, Will Hedges, Dylan Ingerman, and Jordan Goldberg kicked things off with a second-place finish.

At the halfway point of the meet, the 200-yard Freestyle relay team of Dylan Ingerman, Campbell Rankine, Ben Campbell, and Jordan Goldberg brought home the bronze behind Westfield and Scotch Plains-Fanwood.

In the final event of the evening, the 4x100-yard Freestyle Relay, team of Campbell Rankine, Bryan Harvey, Rawleigh Pollock, and Conor Fagan again finished second to bring home a cluster of silver medals.

The Hilltoppers fought hard to deliver top performances that earned medals in every individual event.

Dylan Ingerman:  50-yard Freestyle

Alex Jones:  500-yard Freestyle

Bryan Harvey:  100-yard Backstroke

Jordan Goldberg:  100-yard Breaststroke

“Making a run at challenging Westfield was the result of a team effort and years of work to become better swimmers,” said Summit Head Coach Luke Piede. Senior Captain Jordan Goldberg amplified his coach;s sentiment saying, “It was fun to go out there and be able to compete with a team like that. Coach said we out-scored Westfield in individual events, so I think that’s a pretty solid accomplishment itself.”

Senior Captain Dylan Ingerman added, “This isn’t a team that’s carried by a couple of super-stars. It’s a team where everyone contributes, from our seniors down to our freshmen. This is the first time in five years that we’ve come in second at 'Counties. Our underclassmen are continuing to get stronger and I think that Summit can get its first County title in the near future - maybe even next year.”

The Hilltoppers’ dual meet record stands at 7-1 with three meets remaining in their regular season schedule. They’ll travel to Plainfield on January 24, followed by St. Peter’s Prep on Friday, January  26 and Cranford on Tuesday, January 30 -- both at the Summit YMCA -- before the run-ups to the Sectional and State championships begin.
