Amity a CIAC powerhouse


Orange Live Sports Writer


Make that five wins in a row for the undefeated Amity “Swimmin’ Women”. The Lady Spartans splashed past West Haven 91-82 in a Southern Connecticut Conference meet that wasn’t as close as the final score would indicate. Holding a commanding lead after Brittany Smith won the 500-yard freestyle in 5 minutes, 40.87 seconds, Coach Todd Rainey had his girls swim exhibition (non-scoring) for the meet’s final four events.

The meet began with Madeline Snow, Lydia Pokluda, Dana Grindall, and Dana Chung winning the 200 medley relay with their time of 1:56.26. Jess Kochiss posted a victorious 2:03.08 in the 200 free. Snow’s 2:17.04 was tops in the 200 medley. That was followed by Chung winning the 50 free in 26.38.

Gabrielle Syrop rang up a winning score of 163.40 in diving. Shannon Early chipped in with a first place 1:06.62 in the 100 butterfly and Grindall breezed to a first place time of 54.34 in the 100 free.

Tonight, the 5-0 Lady Spartans host Glastonbury in what is expected to be a very hard-fought non-conference meet at the Orange Community Center pool, starting at 7:30 p.m.
