The Pittston Area swim team defeated Dunmore on Wednesday to stay unbeaten in Division 3, where they haven’t lost since 2010.
The Lady Patriots are 6-0 with four meets to go on the season. Anything can happen, but three of the meets look like likely wins.
The other one, against Meyers on Wednesday in the PA pool, is a little more troublesome. PA beat Meyers 108-78 the first time through the, but that was five weeks ago and things have changed. Meyers is 6-1 and could tie PA for the top spot with a win, assuming PA beats Nanticoke Monday.
I’m a little nervous, said PA coach Amy Hazlet. Our divers swept in the first meet and their divers have improved. I scouted them and their swimmers have improved a lot, too.
Against Dunmore PA won 124-45 and took first place in 11 of 12 events.
First, second and third places winners were: 200 medley relay Shannen Brady, Antoinette Antonacci, Mia Nardone, and Liz Scialpi; 200 IM, Kassity Roche, first and Shannen Brady, second. 50 free, first, Tiffany Smith; 100 fly, Kassity Roche, first and Kaycee Langan second.
