Canton swims past OFA


OFA Girls Swimming Coach Ben Fleahman credits his team for swimming a lot of fast times in Wednesday’s home meet with undefeated Canton.

Leading the Devils were Susie Morrow and Julia Mullin.

Morrow led the 100 freestyle and posted the best 100 backstroke time of the season at 1:09.47. Mullin enjoyed a break-through day winning the 200 individual medley with a 2:33.82 which represented a drop of five seconds in her personal best and the fifth best time in OFA history. She also swam a personal best taking second in the 100 butterfly and anchored Hunter Shaver, Susie Morrow and Chelsea Montroy on the 200 free relay which swam its best time of the season (1:52.20).

“Julia Mullin really had a big day and overall we had a lot of fast times,” said Fleahman.

“Canton is just a very strong team.”

Many of the OFA times were superceded by the power and depth of the Golden Bears who broke away early and cruised to a 113-54 victory.

Fueling the break-away was a first place finish by the medley relay team of Macy Huntley, Katherine Bailey, Clare Olin and Dasha LaPoint and 1-2-3 finish in the 200 freestyle by Angelina Domena, Kirsten Larabee and Breda McCormick.

Domena, a Madrid-Waddington student swimming through a merger agreement, LaPoint and Rachel Huntley led the Bears by figuring in four first place performances.

Domena also led a 1-2-3 in the 500 freestyle and swam the winning 200 and 400 freestyle relay teams. LaPoint led the 50 freestyle, the 100 butterfly and swam legs of the 200 medley and 200 freestyle relays. Rachel Huntley led the 100 breaststroke and 100 backstroke and swam on the 200 freestyle and 200 medley relays.

LaPoint led the 50 freestyle and swam on the medley relay and 200 free relay and McCormick swam on both freestyle relays.

Other individual seconds in the OFA cause came from Chelsea Montroy in the 50 freestyle and Natalie Perrigo in the 100 breaststroke. The Lady Devils (7-4) will complete their NAC season on Friday by hosting St, Lawrence Central in their Senior Day meet.


In a meet held last week OFA downed Gouverneur 117-50 and won all 11 races.

Leading the way was the 200 medley relay team of Julia Mullin (50, 500 fs, 400 fs relay), Susie Morrow (200 fs, 100 butterfly, 400 fs relay) Natalie Perrigo (100 breaststroke, 200 fs relay) and Madi Bresett (100 fs, 200 fs relay) who all figured in multiple victories.

Haley Snodgrass led the 100 backstroke, Jillian Hogle and Claire Dufore swam on the 400 freestyle relay and Hannah Berg and Elizabeth Sovie swam on the 200 freestyle relay.
