MIDDLETOWN – The Plainville boys swim team placed 30th overall in a very competitive 2014 Class S Championship field on Tuesday, March 13 in Middletown.
The event – held at the Freeman Athletic Center – saw the Blue Devils’ squad place 13th overall with 129 total points.
Weston won the Class S title with a total of 695 points and just snuck past second place finisher Sacred Heart.
The Hearts – a worthy competitor from the Naugatuck Valley League – zipped up 603 points.
Northwestern (463), Shepaug Valley (432.5), and Holy Cross (410) rounded out the top five at the Class S challenge.
In the 200 yard medley, Plainville’s combination of sophomore Josh Schilling, junior Trevor Roy, sophomore Jarred Karal, and senior Shayla Beausoleil took 15th place with a final time of 2:04.05. In the 200 yard freestyle, freshman Lorenzo Samperi placed 16th at 2:07.38.
The 50 yard freestyle saw senior Junstin Freitas nab 12th in a finish of 24.20 seconds for the Blue Devils while in the 100 yard butterfly, Samperi ended the event in 1:10.31.
Fresitas earned a 14th place finish in the 100 yard freestyle (53.25 seconds) and in the 200 yard relay, the Blue Devils’ foursome of Samperi, Beausoleil, Freitas, and sophomore Jarred Karal scored a 13th place finish in 1:46.31.
Plainville sophomore Joshua Schilling made a 23rd place showing in the 100 yard backstroke in 1:08.62 while Roy placed 22nd in the 100 yard breaststroke with a final time of 1:12.41.
And in the 400 yard freestyle relay, the grouping of Samperi, Roy, Karal, and Freitas did very well – placing 11th overall – in a time of 3:49.38 to close out the day.
