On Wednesday, Oct. 5, the Manhasset Girls Swim Team traveled to Long Beach to square off against perennial Nassau County powerhouse. Last season the Indians defeated Long Beach for the first time in the history of the program. This year’s rematch was expected to be a close dual between Nassau Counties #2 and #3 ranked teams. As expected, the meet was extremely competitive with swimmers from both teams performing season best performances. In the end, Manhasset utilized their team depth to pull away from the Marines and post a 105-81 victory. The victory improved the Indians to 4-0 on the season. In earlier meets, the Manhasset team defeated rival Great Neck South 91-89, East Meadow and Massapequa.
