Red Dragons cruise to sweep

Staff Report

Oneonta State’s swimmers saved their best for last.

The Red Dragons set seven pool records Wednesday in sweeping a SUNY Athletic Conference dual meet — their last of the season — against visiting Oswego.

Oneonta’s men won, 150-82, to finish the season with a dual-meet record of 4-1. O-State’s women improved to 2-3 with a 145-81 triumph.

Oneonta High graduate Alex Miller contributed to a pool record in the 400-yard freestyle relay as he followed Colton Roe, Ryan Walsh and Lucas Santiago to finish in 3 minutes, 17.89 seconds. Oswego State won the event, though, because the Red Dragons swam the event as an exhibition.

Roe also had a pool record of 1:57.71 for first in the 200 backstroke. Santiago set the pool mark for the 200 butterfly, winning in 1:59.17. Jermaine Miller rounded out the record-setters with a score of 522.55 points in 1-meter diving.

Taylor Waldrop had a women’s pool record with a win in the 1,000 free (10:58.02) and Lauren Zentko did the same with an exhibition time of 5:21.14 in the 500 free. The two joined Chandler Shepard and Carly Cahill for a pool record of 3:48.25 in a 400 free relay exhibition run.

The Red Dragons are off until the Feb. 20-23 SUNYAC Championships at Erie Community College.

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

SUNYIT 72, Cobleskill 51

Senior forward/guard Heidi Anderson set SUNY Cobleskill’s Division III scoring record for women’s basketball with an 18-point night, but the Fighting Tigers lost a North Eastern Athletic Conference game on the road.

Anderson capped her scoring by hitting a three-point field goal with 3:18 left. That gave her 999 all-time points, three more than former teammate Chelcy C. Moore. She set the record of 996 in 2012.

Anderson’s record covers Cobleskill players since 2008, when the Fighting Tigers (6-14, 5-9) moved to NCAA Division III play.

Kady Porterfield contributed 15 points for Cobleskill, which went into halftime facing a 38-20 deficit.
