The swim meet at the Glastonbury pool was a heartbreaker for Amity as their record dropped to 8-1 while Glastonbury upped its perfect record to 9-0.
Glastonbury won 7 of the contests and Amity came out on top in 5.
Amity’s A.J. Pite, Charlie Pite and Dylan Swanepoel each won 2 contests:
Charlie Pite took the 100 yard Butterfly in 56.25; A.J. Pite finished the 100 yard Breaststroke in 1:01.47; and Dylan Swanepoel completed the 500 yard Freestyle in 4:45.68.
All three, along with teammate Ben Bacal took the 400 yard Freestyle Relay in 3:28.74.
Rounding out Amity’s victories was Brian Liang with the 200 yard Individual Medley at 2:04.42.
This meet was a blow to the Spartans who have defeated most of their opponents by about 20 points throughout the season.
Once again, Amity is now 8-1 for the season, still an awesome achievement.
The Amity Swim and Dive Team improved its record to 8-0 with Tuesday night’s Southern CT conference win over Branford at the High Plains Pool in Orange.
Amity took 7 of the 12 events, with a final score of 95-77 (eerily similar to last week’s 95-79 victory over Xavier).
A.J. Pite and Brian Liang were dual winners in this meet with Liang taking the 200 yard individual Medley in 2:08:52 and Pite placing first in the 50 yard Freestyle at 23:28. Then Pite and Liang along with teammates Ben Bacal and Sam Guerra won the 200 yard Freestyle Relay in 1:36:34.
Jacob Laser also made a fine contribution to the team with his two individual first place finishes in the 100 yard freestyle at 50:12 and the 100 yard backstroke with a time of 59:73.
Charlie Pite grabbed the blue ribbon for the 200 yard freestyle with a winning time of 1:51:20.
Rounding out Amity’s great night in the home pool was Dylan Swanepoel with a first place finish in the 500 yard freestyle at 4:48:93
Records: Amity remains undefeated at 8-0 and Branford is now 6-1

Twin wins by Dylan Swanepoel led the undefeated Amity boys swim team (now 3-0) to a 101-70 Southern Connecticut Conference victory over Sheehan Friday night at the Titans’ pool in Wallingford. Swanepoel’s victories came in the 200-yard freestyle (1 minute, 47.44 seconds) and the 500 free (4:49.34). Before going exhibition for the final two events of the meet, Amity had claimed first place in every event except diving and the 100 butterfly.
Jacob Laser, A.J. Pite, Brian Liang, and Jamie Huang opened the meet with a winning time of 1:47.13 in the 200 medley relay. Charlie Pite (200 individual medley–2:09.42), A.J. Pite (50 free—23.36), Sam Guerra (100 free—52.70), Liang (100 backstroke) along with Guerra, Matt Cucurello, Ben Bacal, and Charlie Pite (200 free relay—1:39.60) were the other Spartan winners.
Amity returns to action on Thursday, January 3rd when it hosts Lyman Hall in a 7:30 p.m. SCC meet at the Orange Community Center pool.

With only 18 on his roster, Amity boys’ swim Coach Todd Rainey does not have an abundance of numbers but looking at the personnel he does have on that roster, he certainly has an abundance of talent. Leading the way for the 2012-13 Spartan swim-men are senior Co-Captains Sam Guerra and Matt Cucurello. Guerra is a distance freestyler who qualified for the State Open as a junior. Last winter Cucurello was a Class LL finalist in both the 200-yard individual medley and the 2100 backstroke.
Other seniors on Spartan roster include: Jamie Huang (Class LL qualifier in the 50 and 100 free), Jacob Laser (State Open in the 50 and 100 free), Brian Liang (200 IM and the 100 butterfly), Dylan Swanepoel (State Open in the 200 and 500 free), Vlastislav Zabel (Southern Connecticut Conference qualifier in the 100 backstroke and free), and Cole Bodak (a first year diver).
Last year, Charlie and A.J. Pite both qualified for the State Open as sophomores. Charlie qualified in the 100 butterfly and the free, while A.J. qualified in the 200[O1] IM and the 100 breaststroke. Shaunak Pandit (SCC qualifier in the 100 breaststroke), Stephen Cheung (SCC Finalist in the 50 and 100 free as well as the 100 backstroke) and newcomer Eric Hansen (freestyle) are the Amity juniors.
Ben Bacal (200 and 500 free) and Alec Melotto (100 breaststroke) are both sophomores who were SCC Finalists as freshmen. Ben Clemens, David Wang, and William Wang are freshmen freestylers.
Despite having Eric Holden and Kyle Lemere graduate in June, Rainey is hopeful that his team can come close or equal last winter’s 11-1 record, which earned the Spartans second place in the Southern Connecticut Conference. From there they went on to finish third in Class LL and fourth in the State Open.
According to Rainey (who starts his 18th year at the helm of the Spartans), “Fairfield Prep ran the table last year. They went undefeated, won the SCC, Class LL, and the State Open. They are very strong again this year and will be very tough to beat. We’ll be quite happy if we can do as well as we did last year.”
In addition to the Jesuits, Amity will have to contend with Cheshire, Branford, and Notre Dame in Division I of the SCC. Rainey went on to admit that his team is small but felt certain that it has its share of front line swimmers.
“We don’t have a lot of depth right now, but if our veteran guys can do what they did last year and our younger guys come along during the season to provide us some depth, we should be o.k.,” Rainey added.
Amity looks very strong in the 50 and 500 free, the 200 individual medley, and the 100 butterfly, but having only one diver and he being a senior with no previous experience could be a problem.
Rainey said, “I hope Cole is able to put some points on the board. He’s just a beginner but he is learning quickly.”
The Black and Gold opened their season on Thursday, Dec. 13, with a 6:00 p.m. meet at Foran.
