CANTON - Undefeated Canton (4-0) secured honors in 10 of 11 races to down OFA (3-2) 111-59 in NAC Girls Swimming action on Wednesday at the Golden Bears pool. Highlighting the action were matchups of league leaders between OFAs Susie Morrow and the Canton duo of Angelina Domena in the 200 individual medley and Dasha LaPoint in the 100 butterfly.
Domena, a Madrid-Waddington student who swims for Canton through a merger agreement, prevailed in the 200 IM 2:28.16-2:30.81 swimming the best time in the NAC this season. LaPoint posted a NAC season best and a personal best to fashion a 1:09.19-1:11.46 margin of victory in the butterfly. The Bears Macy Huntley also logged an NAC season best leading the 100 breaststroke in 1:19.02.
Angelina and Dasha swam great races today and as a team we really had a great day. That was first time that Angelina had been able to beat Susie in the IM. But that could all change when we go to OFA later in the season, said Canton Coach Meg McGovern.
Susie Morrow is a great swimmer who works very hard and she is a great kid along with the other OFA swimmers. Ben (OFA Coach Ben Fleahman) talked about how good it was good for the girls to go head-to-head today.
OFAs lone win on the day came from Julia Mullin who outdueled Cantons Macy Huntley in the 200 freestyle (1:16.71-2:17.86).
