Mercersburg sweeps McDonogh School
Saturday, at Mercersburg
Both Mercersburg Academy swim teams easily took down McDonogh School ... The boys were led by double event winners, Sam Ciocco (200 free and 500 free) and Carson Owlett (50 free and 100 free) ... The Blue Storm also swept all three relay events ... This was Mercersburg's first dual meet win of the year ... Blue Storm coach Pete Williams said, "This was a good win for the boys who will be going right back to work preparing for the next week." ... The girls team also saw two double event winners ... Kelly Hamilton (of Chambersburg) won the 100 fly and the 100 back, and Ana Marie Bistrow took first in the 200 free and the 500 free ... Like the boys, the ladies swept the relays ... Christian Hyrkas also earned her first victory in the 1-meter diving ... Williams said, "The girls showed good depth in this victory and their hard work is starting to pay off. I anticipate a strong finish to the year."
