On Tuesday, Jan. 31, The MHS Boys Swim Team traveled to Hewlett to face the #1 preseason conference opponent Hewlett Turtles (5-2). The previous Friday, Jan. 27, the boys easily defeated Massapequa to improve to 6-0 and guarantee at least a tie for the conference crown. The Indians arrived at Hewlett with something to prove. The last time they were undefeated and won a conference crown was 2005. The last time they won at Hewlett was over 20 years ago.
On this day, Manhasset would not be denied. A determined group of seniors implored the team to maintain its intensity and swim with a sense of urgency. The team got out to an early lead. Once again, the Manhasset divers Peter, Chris and Ryan provided a tremendous lift by finishing 1st, 2nd and 3rd to open up a double-digit lead. Manhasset officially clinched the conference title by taking 1st and 2nd in the 400 Free Relay to win the meet 61-40 and finished the season undefeated at 7-0. Congratulations to the boys!
