H-P 54, Cooperstown 48
Luke Zenir lowered his school record in the 100-yard butterfly, but Cooperstown suffered its first loss of the season as Holland-Patent won a Frontier League meet with a victory in the final event.
Zenir finished the 100 butterfly in 58.37 seconds for the Redskins (6-1), who received wins from Sean Mebust (200 individual medley, 2:14.93), Eric Mebust (100 freestyle, 54.05), Michael Kern (100 backstroke, 1:04.41) and Aaron Idelson (diving, 191.15 points).
Zenir, Sean Mebust and Idelson joined Matt Frevele for a triumph in the 200 medley relay (1:53.37) for the Redskins, who finished second in the 400 free relay (3:41.32) as H-P won the final event by four seconds to clinch the meet victory.
“It was the most exciting meet I’ve seen yet,” Cooperstown coach Cheryl Rock said. “Every event, the whole place was just going nuts. Holland-Patent has always had a great team. They’re Class B in swimming, so we did really well. I’ve never heard so much noise ever. The races were pretty intense.”
Cooperstown hosts Utica Proctor on Jan. 23.
