YOUNGSTOWN, OH- On a cold, blustery, winter night, the Spartans heated up the pool by defeating Howland and Poland at Beeghly Natatorium. “Our kids were a bit tired but they knew they would be racing two quality opponents. Poland and Howland both have many fast athletes and there were some very good races. Our depth paid off in the end,” mentioned Coach Cordon.

Double event winners for the Spartans include freshman Petra Crnjak in the 500 Free (6:14.18) and the 100 Breaststroke (1:11.35), junior Alexis Mihok in the 50 Free (25.99) and the 100 Free (56.85), and junior Madison Murphy in the 200 IM (2:17.02) and the 100 Backstroke (1:02.42).

The single event winner for the Spartans was freshman Gina DiNapoli in the 100 Butterfly (1:04.24).

The Spartans won the 200 Medley Relay (Madison Murphy, Petra Crnjak, Gina DiNapoli, and Alexis Mihok) in a time of 1:57.35 and the 400 Freestyle Relay (Madison Murphy, Abbi Mihok, Petra Crnjak, and Morgan Russo) in a time of 4:02.89.

The Spartans record now stands at 7-2 as they head into this Friday’s quad-meet at Beeghly Natatorium vs state powerhouses Akron Firestone, Solon, and Shaker Heights.
