Second-half run lifts Delhi men


Hartwick finished third with 31 points, one shy of Morrisville and 18 behind the host college. Cobleskill (24 points) and Oneonta State (23) placed sixth and seventh, respectively, in the 11-team show.


Donny Martell set a Mountain Valley Conference and SUNY Delhi men’s record in the 500- and 1,650-yard freestyles during the Region III/North East District Championships that ran Friday through Sunday at Monroe CC.

Both Broncos squads finished second to the host school in the three-day meet that ended Sunday. It marked the highest finish for Delhi’s women, who were named the region’s most improved team.

“It was a very successful meet for us,” said Delhi coach John Kolodziej, named the Northeast District’s men’s coach of the year. 

Martell placed third in the 500 free in 5:15.42 to break Mike Roeland’s 2013 team record of 5:24.86. In the 1,650 free, Martell touched second in 18:47.67 to break the MVC record of 19:09.10 set by Brian Wolfe in 2006.

Martell also helped the Broncos to runner-up finishes in the 200 freestyle relay (1:37.91), the 400 medley relay (4:12.92), the 800 free relay (school record time of 8:21.26), and placed second in the 400 individual medley (4:48.16).

The Broncos’ Ryan Ferraro won the 100 backstroke in 1:01.44 and placed second in the 200 backstroke (2:15.67).

Matt Salle won the 3-meter diving event with a meet-record score of 483.55 over 11 dives. Kyle Shares of Monroe had the previous record of 464.90 that he set last season.

Lily McEnaney (2:34.36) and Oneonta High graduate Kari Knudson (2:47.16) finished third and fourth, respectively, in the 200 individual medley to pace Delhi’s women. Both swam legs of the second-place 200 free relay (1:53.98), 400 medley relay (4:49.93) and the third-place 800 free relay (school record time of 9:44.63) teams as well.

McEnaney also set a school record in the 200 butterfly, placing second in 2:35.34. The old record of 2:35.45 was set last season. Her time of 1:07.86 in the 100 butterfly placed her second.
