Foran third in Class S; claim two individual winners

The Foran swimming team placed third for the second straight year in Class S. Sacred Heart won its second title in three years and tallied 591.5 points. Defending champion Weston finished second with 382 points. Foran was next with 336, and Haddam-Killingworth was fourth with 327.

Foran sophomore Dylan Swanepoel won his second consecutive title in the 500 yard butterfly. Swanepoel was also second in the 200 freestyle. In the 500, Swanepoel edged Suffield's Kyle Eheander by four-tenths of a second.

"My coach was telling me to watch out for him (Eheander)," Swanepoel said. "I kept an eye open for him. It was a good race until the end."

Junior Richard Enders won the 100 backstroke for the Lions. Foran believed it could finish as high as second overall, although the Lions lacked depth. Foran brought just eight swimmers to the meet.

"We're really happy with it," Enders said. "We only had eight people from this team here. Other teams had a lot more. But we're really, really happy with third."
