Frontier League Championships

1/25

Sean Mebust placed second in the 100-yard freestyle and the 200 individual medley to help Cooperstown to a third-place finish in the Frontier League Championships at Rome Free Academy.

Mebust broke his school record in the 100 free. He touched in 50.48 seconds to break the mark of 50.68 he set last week.

Mebust finished behind Holland Patent’s Barrett Celeki, who swam a state qualifying time of 48.95.

“He raced against the best and that’s what you want to do,” Cooperstown coach Cheryl Rock said.

Mebust touched in 2:09.15 in the 200 IM.

“We took quite a few second places,” said Rock, who also received second-place finishes from Michael Kern (200 free, 2:04.00) and Ted Mebust (100 backstroke, 1:00.46).

Cooperstown’s 200-yard medley relay team of Ted Mebust, Tae Livermore, Ivan Baez-Braunstein and Sean Mebust also finished second in 1:52.16.
