Foran swimming a contender in Class S

Foran, which finished third in Class S in 2010, is again one of the contenders in that class. The Class S meet is scheduled for Wednesday at 3 p.m. at Wesleyan in Middletown.

Foran finished 8-5 during dual meets this year, and placed ninth at the SCC meet on March 2. However, competing against schools of its own size in Class S will allow the Lions to vie for the title. Sacred Heart, Haddam-Killingworth and Weston are also expected to contend for the title.

"Class S, we would definitely like to finish in the top 5," Foran coach Kristin Skuches said. "We know there's a very small point spread between second and seventh place right now so going in, definitely top 5. I'd love to see us repeat at third like we did last year, but definitely top 5. That's where we want to be."

Foran had a successful day at the trials this past Saturday.

"I think that was key," Skuches said. "We go into trials trying to place our kids as high as we possibly can. They went in and did that on Saturday. Getting all three of our relays into that top 8, having three kids in the final heat (of individual events), that will definitely help us try to achieve that goal."

Foran brings just eight swimmers to the divisional meet. However, sophomore Dylan Swanepoel (200 freestyle, 500 freestyle), junior Richard Enders (100 freestyle, 100 backstroke), and senior Andrew DeLuke (50 freestyle) will all compete in the final heat in their respective events.
