Amity's Holden breaks Class L record, Cheshire finishes second

Amity sophomore Eric Holden broke the meet record in the 100 breaststroke in the Class L championships. Holden finished in 57.30 to eclipse the previous mark of 58.08 set by Cheshire’s Jared Proto in 1996.

"(The record) was always a goal at the end," Holden said. "I was thinking maybe a 57 high, I didn’t think I was going to go that fast. The record was always a goal, but to go that far under is just icing on the cake and I’m pretty excited about that."

Cheshire, which finished seventh overall last season here, finished a surprising second behind winner Pomperaug, holding off third-place Newtown by one point. Amity was fourth.

"We started talking about this a few weeks ago," Cheshire coach Fran Connolly said, "that (finishing second) was a possibility. To have it happen, everybody is thrilled."
