Foran Swimmers Win Every Event in Victory Over Seymour

DeLuke and Enders claim double dips in Lions' 93-70 win.

Led by twin wins from Andrew DeLuke and Rich Enders, the Foran boys swim team recorded its third consecutive win Monday night when it defeated Seymour 93-70.

DeLuke’s victories came in the 200-yard individual medley (2:20.21) and the 100 backstroke (1:07.12). Enders claimed wins in both the 100 butterfly (59.32) and the 50 free (24.17).

Dylan Swanepoel was first in the 500 free (5:54.40). Dan Gallup did the same thing in the 200 free (a personal best 2:02.59). Stan Olsson was tops in diving (154.70), as was Matt Haselkamp in the 100 free (54.87). Jia Wei Fan won the 100 breaststroke (1:17.59). Foran swam exhibition in the 100 backstroke, the 100 breaststroke, and the 400 free relay.

In addition to winning every individual event, the 3-4 Lions also swept the three relays. Enders, Fan, Swanepoel and DeLuke recorded a first place time in the 200 medley relay (1:52.48). The same held true in the 200 free relay in which Olsson, Josh Bartosiewicz, Haselkamp and Swanepoel rang up a 1:43.70. The meet came to an end with Bartosiewicz, Gallup and Swanepoel checking out with a first place time of 3:50.22.

According to Lion Coach Kristen Skuches, “Seymour graduated a lot of good swimmers last June and is now in a rebuilding mode. As a result, we went into the meet for times. We lost several days in the pool due to all the bad weather we’ve had lately. Because we had not been in the pool, I really didn’t know what to expect. As things worked out, we swam very well. Dan Gallup had a fabulous meet and Matt Haselkamp swam very well too.”

She added, “This meet served as a good barometer of what we should expect tomorrow against Shelton. That should be a very close meet.”

The Lions visit the Gaels today, Feb. 8, in a 3:30 p.m. meet at the Huntington Recreation Center in Shelton.
