The lean Bomber boys’ team lost a very close meet to a tough opponent.
Although Westfield finished first in six of the first nine events and led with only three events remaining, the Bombers ran out of swimmers and couldn’t seal the deal for the win.
Highlights of the meet for the Bombers included an opening win in the 200 medley relay by the team of senior captain Chris Tu, Nick Rosso, Gabe Centeno, and Slav Pashuk.
Rosso and Centeno combined to take first and second place in the 200 individual medley. Senior captain James Wagner took top honors in diving in a close three-way competition. Rosso won the 100 freestyle handily in 55.98.
Westfield’s Sam Cloutier, quickly emerging as a tough competitor in the long distance 500 freestyle, won the event for the third meet in a row with a solid 6:02.62.
Westfield fell to 2-2.
