Decatur boys’ swim team wins season opener

(Dec. 12, 2014) The Stephen Decatur boys’ swim team won its season opener, 97-73, over the Easton Warriors Tuesday at the Pocomoke YMCA.

“It was a good first meet for the boys,” said Coach Damien Sanzotti. “The boys swam well, but we do have a lot of work to do. A lot of rudimentary things to work on.”

Junior Andrew Gottfried scored victories in the 200 IM (2:12.84) and the 100-yard butterfly (55.88 seconds).

Senior captain Dalton Warren won the 100-yard backstroke (1:03.78).

Warren and Gottfried teamed up with senior captain Chris Poole and freshman Kevin Williams for the 200-yard medley relay race. The boys won the event in 1:50.

The Lady Seahawks came up a bit short in their competition. Easton edged out Decatur, 88-82.

“The girls did well. It was a tight meet the whole time,” Decatur Coach Steve Deakyne said.

Senior captain Carly Deickman took top honors in the 100-yard breaststroke (1:13.31) and junior Madison Tinus was victorious in the 50-yard freestyle race (26.53 seconds).

Deickman, Tinus and juniors Marley Rakow and Hailey Williams out-swam their competition in the 400-yard freestyle relay race (4:14.06).

“It was a good way to start the season. The girls were a little disappointed because they went undefeated last year,” Deakyne said. “We know where we stand and where we can improve. It’s something to build on and to motivate for the future.”

Decatur is scheduled to meet the Queen Anne’s Lions at Washington College today, Friday, for competition at 7 p.m.
