Roundup: Monument boys swimming downed by MAU, while Warriors sweep

Posted
GREAT BARRINGTON — It had to happen as some points. The Monument Mountain boys swim team had gone more than four years without a blemish on their record, but two days after narrowly avoiding defeat at the hands of Pittsfield High, Mount Anthony came to down and did the trick. The Patriots toppled Monument 87-82 on the strength of two relay wins and a deep team that featured four different individual victors.

"We lost by five. We tried to chip away like we were able to do in the Pittsfield meet, but couldn't quite make it up after they swept 1-2 in the back and breast," said Monument coach Jill Svirida. "I'm totally thrilled, though. No disappointments. We had a couple shining moments and this is still a victory. What this team has been able to accomplish has been unbelievable. I know they were tired from the PHS meet, and Mount Anthony just got us."

Nick Dillon and Harry Albert still secured two individual wins for Monument. On the girls side, Monument did remain unbeaten, and according to Svirida, they are working on their own four year undefeated streak. The Spartans totaled Mount Anthony 128-42, sweeping the relays and riding a pair of wins from Asa Stone and Olivia Raifstanger.

New Lebanon boys 34, Taconic 8


NEW LEBANON — Taconic and New Lebanon split a dual meet over in New York Friday afternoon, with the girls squads really duking it out in the pool. The New Lebanon boys took advantage of an undermanned Braves team that features just two swimmers. The Tigers got a pair of wins each from Jeffrey Miller and Winter Exley. On the girls side, the teams went back and forth a bit with the Tigers leading after three events. Delaney Ivas tied it up for the Braves with a blazing win in the 50 freestyle, and then immediately pushed Taconic ahead with a back-to-back win in the 100 butterfly. Caitlin Hall also earned two wins for the Braves in the 200 and 100 freestyle, while Gigi French brought home a pair of victories for New Lebanon. Taconic took two of the three relays, with Ivas and Mikayla Moss featuring on both winning foursomes.

PITTSFIELD — It was a dominant outing in the pool for the Wahconah swim team. The Warriors swept visiting Hudson in a meet that including a gargantuan drubbing on the girls' side and a comfortable win on the boys'.

Kate Bernardy brought home wins in the 50 and 500 freestyle, showing some diverse skills.

Wahconah 62, Mount Everett 47


SHEFFIELD — A punishing Wahconah (6-1) offense ultimately proved too much for an undersized Mount Everett (3-4) team to handle Friday night at home. The visiting Warriors consistently got what they wanted in the halfcourt, and eventually Cassie Tobler broke through in a big way with nine of her team-high 17 points in the fourth quarter. Defensively, Wahconah was chasing Gwen Carpenter around all night, but she still went off for 19 points. However, the Warriors matched everything she, of Madison Ullrich and Marion Devoti got with points of their own.

"They really hurt us inside," said Mount Everett coach Scott Rote. "They shook Tobler loose on some screens. We mixed up defenses throughout. We came out hot, Gwen had 14 in the first half, but they kept going."

Pittsfield 66, Lee 34

LEE — For the second night in a row, the Generals went out on the road and earned a victory. Pittsfield (6-2) dominated the second half, while Taea Bramer heated up and the defense cooled off Lee (1-7) in a hurry. Bramer canned three 3-pointers, all after intermission, as she scored 15 of her game-high 19 in the second half and 11 in the fourth quarter. Similarly, senior Bella Aitken put down 11 of her 13 points after halftime. The Wildcats trailed just 26-22 at halftime, getting 10 first-half points from Brianna Hawley. Pittsfield swarmed leading scorer Shannon Finnegan all game, though, and shut the entire team down in a three-point third quarter.

"They were really good in the third quarter," said Lee coach Rick Puleri. "We missed a lot of shots and they put a pressure emphasis on Shannon Finnegan. Pittsfield just played well and hit their shots."

Wahconah 60, Lenox 49

LENOX — The typically reserved Wahconah (6-2) offense exploded for 29 points in the fourth quarter to pull away from an increasingly feisty Lenox (0-9) team Friday night. The Warriors trailed 27-26 at halftime and lost another point of ground in a 6-5 third quarter. Then, however, the lid came off the basket in Lenox and Wahconah took hold of the game one night after a loss at the Hoophall Classic. Kevin Huban was electric, hitting four 3-pointers en route to 19 points, while Tom Burris was the engine in the final frame, earning 12 of his 16 points to seal the win. For Lenox, Connor Prince led with 14 points, as the Millionaires have an end in sight to their rough Berkshire North heavy schedule to start the year.

"Their size finally wore us down. We battled hard for three quarters, kids played their hearts out," said Lenox coach Scott Sibley. "They had 16 offensive rebounds in the second half, and eight of those were putbacks. It's been a rough start, but the kids are getting it and there is light at the end of the tunnel."

Tufts women 47, Williams 40

MEDFORD — It was a gruesome one out at Tufts, as the two sides combined to shoot just 28.7 percent and miss 25 of 30 3-point shots. Williams was held to single-digit points in each of the third and fourth quarters, while the Ephs defense allowed only five points to the Jumbos in the second. Because of that defense, the visitors led 23-17 at the break, but went ice cold in the second half. Kristin Fechtelkotter lead the way with 12 points and nine rebounds, but Tufts managed three players in double figures to win it.

Tufts men 69, Williams 63

WILLIAMSTOWN — Tufts (12-3, 3-0) handed Williams (11-3, 2-1) its first NESCAC loss on Friday night.

Williams held a three-point lead after one half, but the Jumbos came roaring back after halftime. Eric Savage scored 11 of his 13 points in the second half.

Williams led by as many as 11 in the second. Savage's layup with 2:21 left tied the game at 63. Patrick Racy's jumper with 1:52 left proved to be the winner.

James Heskett led Williams with 23 points.
