The Manhasset Boys Varsity Swim Team entered the 2009-10 season ranked 15th in Nassau County and 7th in Conference 2.
The team graduated a strong senior class from last years’ team that set two school relay records and accounted for the majority of the team points at last year’s team championships.
As expected, the early season would be tough as the Indians were defeated by two non-league (Conference 1) opponents, the top Conference 2 seed Farmingdale, and a contending Garden City team.
The Indians lone victory was against conference opponent Uniondale 49-42.
Highlights from the early season competitions include many personal/season best performances.
