Swim team anchored by depth


Aaron Idelson set the school record for a six-dive meet at 218.1, breaking his own record from last season. His score is sixth-best in Section Three this season.

Milford’s Luke Zenir, who swims on the CCS team, has the 13th best time in the 100 butterfly, 58.37.

In the 500 freestyle, Sean Mebust and Zenir are 14th and 15th, respectively, with times of 5:23.83 and 5:25.62.

The Cooperstown 200 medley relay and 400 freestyle relay teams are in the top 20 as well, 11th and 19th, respectively.

The team’s only loss this season came on Jan. 10 at Holland Patent, 54-48.

“It came down to the last relay, and it was very close,” Rock said. “It was very exciting. Holland Patent is a swimming powerhouse. To beat them is very impressive, and we almost beat them twice.”

On Dec. 22, at the Clark Sports Center, Cooperstown beat HP 101-79. 

Rock said the difference between the two meets was the four-lane scoring.

“We didn’t do as well when all the scores didn’t count,” she said.

The Section Three diving championship is Feb. 9 and the swimming championships are Feb. 14 and 16. Both will be held in New Hartford.
