Girls Swimming: Greenwich nips New Canaan for FCIAC crown

November 5, 2017 by ·  

From GametimeCT-  New Haven Register 

GREENWICH — It was a battle to the finish.

The team championship at the 2017 FCIAC Girls Swim Championship Saturday night at the Greenwich High pool wasn’t decided until the final leg on the final relay.

Although Staples won the 400-yard freestyle relay, Greenwich High finished one body length ahead of New Canaan High to keep the stubborn Rams at bay.

Greenwich finished the evening with 308.50 points to edge out New Canaan (301). The prize for the Cardinals was their first FCIAC Girls Swim team title since 2008.

“I knew we had a good team but there is such great competition throughout the league this year,” said Greenwich coach Lorrie Hokayem. “The FCIAC title was a good goal to have since we hadn’t won a crown in a while (nine years). It was so exciting going down to the very end.”

Greenwich senior Kelly Montesi swam the opening leg of the 400 freestyle relay to give the Cardinals a boost out of the blocks. It was freshman Meghan Lynch who swam the anchor leg that put a ribbon around GHS’ hard-fought championship.

“We needed the whole army. The girls swam with heart and guts,” GHS coach Hokayem said. “New Canaan swam so well. It took everybody to pull this out. It was a fun evening. We have to say that our (four) divers (Kate Russack, Casey Kirsch, Annabelle Pollack, Maddie Muldoon; who all finished in the top six in Thursday’s FCIAC diving for 60 points) were so awesome. They get better and better. They gave us the boost of momentum we needed.”

New Canaan made a huge run to close to within 278-275 entering the consolation and championship heats of the 400 free relay. The Rams head into the state tournament postseason pleased.

“We did everything we possibly could. I’m so ecstatic with our performance,” said New Canaan coach David Fine. “Kudos to Greenwich. They earned this FCIAC title. It was a long time coming for them. As for our group, we’ve come a long way during what has been a two-year journey. We’re still basically a young team. I couldn’t be happier with the way they responded in this atmosphere (with NC fans and GHS fans going the extra mile in cheering their teams).”

Staples High was third with 270 points followed by Ridgefield 268, Wilton 266 and Ludlowe 191.

“We had a strong FCIAC trials. I’m happy with our finish,” said Ridgefield coach Jeff Bonaccorso. “We didn’t have any points from the diving Thursday. Our team is always about heart and guts and being clutch.”

Ludlowe High senior Sarah Grinalds won the meet’s Most Valuable Swimmer award. She captured the 50 free (23.47), the 500 free (4:59.22) and swam on at least two Ludlowe relays.

Other top performers in the meet included Staples’ Esme Hunter (won the 100 free (51.61) and the 100 backstroke (56.92), Elizabeth Colwell of New Canaan (won the 200 IM (2:06.12) and the 100 breaststroke (1:05.03).

Other FCIAC individual winners included Greenwich’s Lynch (200 Free) and Staples’ Marissa Healy (100 buttterfly). Ridgefield junior Anna Turner collected a gaggle of seconds and thirds while shining in the relays.


Team Scores: 1, Greenwich 308.50 points; 2, New Canaan 301; 3, Staples 270; 4, Ridgefield 268; 5, Wilton 266; 6, Ludlowe 191; 7, Norwalk-McMahon 180; 8, Westhill-Stamford 153; 9, Trumbull 133; 10, Warde 102; 11, Darien 78.

Greenwich girls swim team defeats Staples, improves to 9-0

October 25, 2017 by ·  

GREENWICH — As the results have clearly illustrated, the Greenwich High School girls swimming team hasn’t missed a beat so far this season.

The defending State Open and Class LL champion Cardinals are on pace to produce another season to remember, beating everyone that’s come their way.

And Friday, it was a strong Staples squad that crossed Greenwich’s path.

Showcasing its depth, Greenwich remained undefeated posting a 99-85 win over the visiting Wreckers in a late-season FCIAC meet. With the victory, the Cardinals improved to 9-0 with one meet remaining in their regular season.

“I thought we swam really well today,” said GHS coach Lorrie Hokayem, who has guided the Cardinals to the State Open title the past two seasons. “I’m very enthused by the way we are swimming.”

One of the highlights of the meet came from Cardinals senior diver Kate Russack, who broke her own school record by winning the one-meter diving event with a score of 284.95 points. She earned two scores of 8 on her forward dive from the pike position, which included two somersaults. On her fifth dive, she drew two more scores of 8 with her inward 11/2dive from the tuck position.

“We have been working really hard and we all continue to push each other,” Russack said. “We have all improved incredibly and we all support each other. During practice, we help each other if someone is having a bad practice or bad day.”

Said Hokayem: “Our divers have been phenomenal. This was a really nice diving meet. Kate has been very focused and fun to watch and all four of our divers dove great.”

Senior Kelly Montesi won two individual events for GHS, touching the wall first in the 100-yard butterfly (56.96) and the 100 backstroke (57.40). Staples junior Marissa Healy was second in the butterfly (58.55), followed by Cardinals junior Emily Warner (1:00.86).

“The way we are swimming bodes really well for the postseason meets,” Montesi said. “I was really excited going into that race against Marissa (Healy). She is very fast, so I was ready to go and was feeling good. The backstroke was a bit of a closer race. My opponent was very fast as well and it came down to the finish.”

Staples started the meet with its foursome of Esme Hunter, Willow Woods, Healy and Annie Bowens winning the 200 medley relay in 1:51.01. Warner gave Greenwich a first-place finish in the 200 freestyle (1:58.92), followed by Staples’ Michelle Kennedy (1:59.93) and Kortney Knudsen of GHS (2:01.24).

Woods was the 200 individual medley winner (2:14.47), while Kate Ennis of the Cardinals took second (2:20.24) and her sister Samantha placed third (2:16.08). Bowens touched out the competition in the 50 freestyle (25.47), with Ainsleigh Winget of Greenwich placing second (25.58).

Hunter won the 100 freestyle in 53.22, while Lousia Bjerke of the Cardinals was second (54.93) and senior Julia Merrill finished third (55.43).

“I am very proud, but not surprised that the team is undefeated so far,” Merrill said. “It’s really exciting for us. Winning the championship meets are some of our goals and that’s very possible for us.”

Each event featured two heats as the Cardinals’ and Wreckers’ junior varsity teams also competed against each other.

“With the JV team here, it was nice to have a big team and so many people here supporting one another,” Merrill said.

Michelle Kennedy, a junior, won the 500 freestyle for Staples in 5:18.09, while Knudsen was the runner-up. Woods had a first-place finish in the 100 breaststroke for Staples, which is 6-3 on the season. The 200 freestyle relay saw Winget, Bjerke, Warner and Merrill register a winning time of 1:41.60. Though they swam exhibition, Greenwich also had the top time in the 400 freestyle relay.

“The relays were solid,” Hokayem said. “We have a pretty deep team, so it’s been exciting. People are still finding their way onto the relays.”; 203-625-4423

The Daily 5 in high school sports: FCIAC swimmers to watch

September 21, 2017 by ·  

With the season just getting underway, here are some FCIAC girls swimmers who should make some waves for their respective teams this fall:

Kelly Montesi, Greenwich: The senior won the 100-yard butterfly title at the State Open championships last season and was the champion in the event at the Class LL meet. She also placed second in the 200 individual medley at the State Open and was the Class LL champion in the event.

Sarah Grinalds, Fairfield Ludlowe: A senior, Grinalds is coming off a junior campaign that saw her finish second at the State Open title in the 50-yard freestyle and win the 500 freestyle. Showing her talent in both sprint and distance the events, she also won the two races at the Class LL championships.

Willow Woods, Staples: The versatile senior is one of the premier competitors in the state in the 200-yard individual medley event. She placed third in the race at the State Open and and was the runner-up at the Class LL competition. She also excels in the 100-yard breaststroke.

Hannah Snyder, Ridgefield: The junior proved herself to be one of the top sprinters in the state last season, placing fourth in the 50 freestyle at the State Open. She also finished seventh in the 100 freestyle. She also flourishes in the relay events — the 200 medley and 400 freestyle.

Meghan Lynch, Greenwich: Only a freshman, Lynch made quite a debut for the Cardinals against Glastonbury on Saturday. She won the 200 freestyle and also finished first in the 100 butterfly.

SHS Girls Swimming Ends Season at States

November 21, 2016 by ·  


Fresh off a third place finish at FCIACs earlier this month, the Staples girls swim team backed it up with another pair of solid finishes at the state meets to close the season last week. The Wreckers placed third at the Class LL championships at Southern Connecticut State University Nov. 16th and took sixth at the State Open at Yale University Nov. 19.

Staples (470 points) finished behind FCIAC rivals Greenwich (854) and Ridgefield (570.5) at the Class meet as several Wreckers notched top three finishes. The 200 medley relay team of Mia Fraas, Willow Woods, Marissa Healy and Kenzie Healy finished second with a time of 1:48.11.

In the 200 IM, Woods (2:05.96) and Esme Hunter (2:08.32) took second and third. Kenzie Healy finished sixth in the 50 freestyle in 24.52. Marissa Healy finished in second in the 100 butterfly while Michelle Kennedy took third in the 500 freestyle. Hunter finished second in the 100 backstroke while Woods took second in the 100 breaststroke.

Staples finished the meet with a fourth in the 400 freestyle relay behind Kenzie Healy, Hunter, Woods and Marissa Healy
The Wreckers also scored points in diving as sophomore Alexa Mysel finished ninth with 329.55 points.

At the State Open Staples 327 points, just behind Weston (376), Darien (361) and Cheshire (331). Like the Class LL meet, Greenwich (510.5) and Ridgefield (400.5) ran away with the event. Fraas, Woods, Marissa Healy and Kenzie Healy took third in the 200 medley relay in 1:48.47.

Woods and Hunter this time took third and fourth in the 200 IM with times of 2:06.95 and 2:07.03 respectively. Marissa Healy took sixth in the 100 butterfly in 58.07. Hunter finished second in the 100 backstroke (56.72).

Staples Girls Swimming Takes 3rd at FCIACs

November 10, 2016 by ·  


By Ryan Lacey

Heading into the FCIAC swim championships last week, Staples coach Mike Laux hoped his team would finish fifth at the highly competitive meet based on what he saw from his team during the season and at trials.

Once the bright lights turned on at the Greenwich High pool, it appeared to bring out the best in the Wreckers, who finished third.

The results of the meet came as a surprise as Ridgefield won its first ever conference title, Wilton took second and defending champion New Canaan placed eighth. The field was tight, though, and Staples jumped three places from sixth to third in the final race of the meet: the 400 freestyle relay. By placing second to the Tigers, Staples (258) earned a bronze medal as a team and finished just 2.5 points behind Wilton (260.5) and only 1.5 points ahead of fourth-placed Greenwich (256.5).

“We got the girls a little bit inspired and as I told them on the bus afterwards: ‘I knew that you guys were going to swim fast, but I didn’t realize how fast you were going to swim,’” Laux said. “We were in sixth place (for the entire meet), and the final relay came. It was fantastic.”

The lone win in the competitive meet for Staples came in the 100 butterfly, where Wreckers sophomore Marissa Healy (56.67) won by close to two seconds. Healy finished second in the event a year ago behind teammate Mia Bullock, but suffered a knee injury and was unable to compete at Class LL or the State Open.

“I think it meant it meant the world to her,” said Wreckers captain Kenzie Healy. “As her sister that’s all I want for her. I think as a teammate that’s all you want; to finish to look up at her time and be really shocked and happy.”

Michelle Kennedy finished fourth in the 500 freestyle, clocking in at 5:13.47.

The 200 medley relay team dropped four seconds to take second place — behind the Tigers, who set an All-American time in the win — with a time of 1:47.15. Willow Woods (2:06.95) and Esme Hunter (2:08.17) took second and third respectively in the 200 IM. Staples also finished second and third in the 100 backstroke as Hunter (58.26) and Marissa Healy (58.94) earned medals. The Wreckers had four of the top 11 finishers in that event.

“I knew it was a good team,” Laux said. “We’ve been waiting all season for them to do what they did (at FCIACs). I knew they were good and they could do it; we worked them really hard.”
Kenzie Healy — the lone senior on the team to qualify for states finished fourth in the 50 freestyle in 24.52. Woods finished second in the 100 breaststroke in 1:06.18.

Staples is in position to challenge for a podium place at the upcoming Class LL meet next Wednesday at Southern Connecticut State University. The young group has grown up quite quickly, Laux said.

“I think we just want to continue on the good streak we had at FCIACs and improve,” Kenzie Healy said. “If we come in top three at states that would be amazing; just keep the high energy going.”

Girls Swimming Returns Strong Core

September 6, 2016 by ·  


By Ryan Lacey

The record board inside the pool at Staples High School features the top several times from each event from the program’s long history. In one meet against Ridgefield last season — a narrow Staples win — the Wreckers added more than 10 times to the board.

Several of those record holders are back to carry the flag following one of the most successful years in school history, while four-year standout Mia Bullock is now at Fordham University.

The Wreckers posted a sparkling record during the dual meet season to claim a share of the West division for the first time in school history before taking fourth at FCIACs, third at Class LL and sixth at the State Open. In addition to Bullock, Anelise Browne and Aileen Coyne graduated from what coach Mike Laux described as the best team he’s had as Staples coach.

Three of the Wreckers seniors will serve as captains this fall. Kenzie Healy will swim in the sprint freestyle events. Caroline Gray is also a freestyle swimmer and Kristina Wasserman swims the backstroke events.
“We lost a couple of good swimmers but we’ve improved and picked up some good swimmers,” said junior Willow Woods. “Our club swimmers have been training the entire year so it will be good.”

Staples features several talented underclassmen ready to make a big leap. Woods swam in the 100 breaststroke and 200 IM at last year’s State Open.

“Willow has a lot of talent,” Laux said. “She’s a strong swimmer and has a lot of speed. She likes to race.”
Sophomores Marissa Healy, Mia Fraas, Olivia Utter and Michelle Kennedy will also have a chance to score points for the Wreckers, according to Laux.

“All of the sophomores were very good last year as freshmen,” Laux said. “We’re hoping they’re better this year as sophomores.”

There may be several freshman waiting to fill in the gaps from the departed seniors, according to Laux.
The Wreckers have to replace all of their top divers from a year ago. Diving coach Dan Long lost Sophia Stanley (fourth), Eliza Donovan (10th), Katherine Hertan (16th) and Hannah Rose (22nd), who all placed at the Class LL championships last winter.

With the bar raised from a successful 2015, the Wreckers will try to repeat what they managed a year ago.
“I think we have a really good team and I think we have the capability to doing just as well as we did last year, if not better,” Kenzie Healy said.

And perhaps add more times to the record board.

“We definitely want to be as close to Ridgefield again,” Marissa Healy said. “And swim as fast as we possibly can to place at FCIACs and states.”

Bullock Ends Season with State Open Wins

November 24, 2015 by ·  


By Ryan Lacey

Touching the wall at Yale University’s Kiphuth Pool for the final time in her high school career, Staples senior Mia Bullock’s win in the 100 butterfly (54.52) at the State Open capped a remarkable four-year career and a personal journey all at the same time.

Bullock also won the 200 IM (2:02.41) at last Saturday’s open as the Wreckers placed sixth as a team. It was personal redemption for Bullock, who placed 13th in the 200 IM last year after entering the event seeded second. During the race, a technical accident during a backstroke resulted in a disappointing finish — and a desire to immediately bounce back.

“I had a blackout, stalled and fell way behind,” Bullock said. “Things happen in swimming; not every race is going to go perfect. After losing last year it really put the fire in to go out there and focus on winning it this year.”

That day she went on to win the 100 butterfly, and has won most of the events she’s entered since. She won double gold at the FCIAC, Class LL and State Open.

“Yale is my favorite pool to swim at,” Bullock said. “The atmosphere is amazing; you go in there and it’s so loud and hectic. It’s an adrenaline rush. Going in there know I’ll never swim in that pool again made (the event) special).”

Next up for Bullock is an appearance at USA Junior Nationals, which is scheduled for Dec. 9-12 in Atlanta. She will compete against the top swimmers in the country in a number of events with her club team, Fairport (New York).

“I don’t know where I stand compared to (other swimmers),” Bullock said. “I’m going to swim in some events that I haven’t in a while. I’m looking forward to having fun with my teammates at the end of the season.”

Bullock will graduate from Staples in January, and head off to Austrialia for a month to visit family and begin training for the Olympic Trials in June. Following that event, Bullock will attend Fordham University and swim for the Rams.

Bullock credited her performance to an increase in strength and conditioning training with former hockey player Devin Edgerton at Athletic Edge, a company that operates out of the SoNo Ice House in Norwalk. The pair met almost daily for dry-land training to go along with countless hours in the pool.

Staples Takes 3rd at LL Championships

November 17, 2015 by ·  


By Rich DePreta

NEW HAVEN — It was a wonderful evening for the FCIAC, as expected, Tuesday night at the Class LL Girls Swimming Championship at the Southern Connecticut State University Hutchinson Natatorium.

Greenwich High School won its sixth consecutive LL title and 18th LL crown in 21 years. The Cardinals amassed 897 points in the 12 events to easily outdistance runner-up Ridgefield High (555 points) and third place Staples (461 points).

Norwalk/McMahon Co-op was fifth (385) with Ludlowe High sixth (328.5), Westhill-Stamford ninth (252.5) and Trumbull High 11th (216).

Newtown (237) of the SWC finished 10th.

Records fell as FCIAC schools took first place in all 12 events.

Among the top individuals was senior Amelia Bullock of Staples High. She was LL champion in the 200-yard IM in 2:04.54, just missing the LL record (2:04.25).

Bullock also won the 100-yard butterfly in 55.40.

“I’m thrilled with my performance in the 200 IM. It’s been a while since I’ve lowered my personal best in an event. And earning All-American consideration is a great achievement.”

One reason Staples couldn’t catch Ridgefield in the team standings was the absecnce of freshman Marissa Healy, who suffered a injury to her kneecap after slipping at the LL trials last Saturday at East Hartford High.

“Losing Marissa was a tough loss,” Bullock said. “We just had to come up with a different game plan in her four events (two individual, two relays). I’m so proud of how our entire team responded to the challenge tonight.”

Leading the way to the runner-up spot for Ridgefield was junior Marcie Maguire.

She swam a leg on both of Ridgefield’s victorious 200-yard medley relay (1:46.41) and the Tigers second-place 400-yard free relay (3:31.19; out-touched by Greenwich’s winning 3:30.95).

Maguire set a Class LL record while winning the 200-yard freestyle in 1:50.27.

Maguire swam an unforgettable 100-yard backstroke. She won in 54.91 — a Class LL meet record, a state record and a Southern Connecticut Hutchinson Natatorium mark.

“Maguire is an animal in the pool. She does anything that she sets her mind to,” said Ridgefield coach Jeff Bonaccorso. “She is a special athlete with a personality to be a star as she goes on in the sport.

“All our girls showed amazing will to finish in second place,” Bonaccorso continued. “The hard work has paid off and it is showing in our team’s results.”

The other FCIAC star of the future unveiling Tuesday night was Ludlowe High sophomore Sarah Grimalds.

Grimalds set a Class LL meet record of :23.51 while racing to victory in the 50 free.

She also displayed great strength while winning the 500 free by half a pool length in 4:55.0. However, she just missed the Class LL record of 4:54.90, set in 2013 by Staples’ Verity Abel.

The time for kudos will be short as the standouts will return to action Saturday at noon for the State Open Swimming Championship at the Yale University pool.
