Varsity Swimming/Diving - Boys vs. Northfield Mt Hermon
Event Type: Regular
Date: February 1, 2012
Event Recap:

The Northfield Mount Hermon Hoggers traveled to Windsor on this springlike first day of February to face the Pelicans in their final dual meet prior to the midwinter long weekend. The meet opened with back-to-back wins for the Hoggers, despite terrific races (and personal best times) from Landon Thies and Fred Mun in the 200M Freestyle, with Thies finishing behind Wilson Josephson by a mere 0.12 seconds. The Pelicans quickly turned the tables on the Hoggers with a sweep of the Individual Medley with Will Bogle leading the way, followed by Geneth Chin and brother Jeremy, all with personal bests. In the 50M Freestyle, NMH's Brian Luk burst out of the gates to claim the win, with Jack Kilpatrick and Tucker Cheyne trailing close behind. With no divers competing today, at "halftime" the score stood at Loomis 35, NMH 27.

Play resumed with an especially tight showdown between NMH's Josephson and Tripp Miller in the 100M Butterfly, with Tripp finishing only half a second behind with a personal best, followed by Jamil Hashmi (also a P.B.) and Jake Bosee, with a very promising first effort in that event. Luk then joined teammate Josephson as a dual winner in the 100M Freestyle in spite of P.B.'s from Kilpatrick and Ramy Chin in another hotly-contested race. The Pelicans dominated the 400M Freestyle with a 1-2-3 punch from John Furlong, Will Bogle and Landon Thies, all with lifetime best swims. Though the Hoggers won the Sprint Freestyle Relay, the Backstroke and the Breaststroke, Pelicans Jeremy Bogle and Dan Wade tallied P.B.'s in the Back and Jamil Hashmi debuted with an excellent swim (and second place) in the Breast. Wrapping up the meet with a little intra-team competition, the Loomis 400M Free Relay team of Miller, Bosee, Mun and Ramy Chin took the honors, with Kilpatrick, Jeremy Bogle, Wade Furlong close behind in second. Tucker Cheyne's valiant anchor leg notwithstanding, the Pelican's third relay team (also Geneth Chin, Thies and Steven Wang) finished just 3/10's of a second behind the Hoggers in fourth place. The win stretches the Pelicans' record to 6-1-0 thus far, with two challenging meets lying ahead of us after the weekend: Suffield (A) on Feb. 8 and Phillips Exeter (H) on Feb. 11. Best of luck and thanks for a good meet to the Hoggers!


The Pelicans welcomed the Hotchkiss Bearcats into the Hedges Natatorium on Saturday for the teams' annual dual meet. Primed for some racing after a 10-day weather-induced dearth of meets, the Pelicans leapt out of the gates with an aggressive 1-3-5 finish in the medley relay, establishing a brisk pace for the rest of the meet, which culminated with a 25-point victory margin and a 100-75 win for the home team.

The boys and girls swimming and diving teams hosted the Bobcats from Williston on Wednesday, finishing the day with the boys earning a 89-72 victory and the girls garnering a 96-85 win.

The boys varsity swim team won its second consecutive Founders League Championship on Saturday at Miss Porter's School, setting several school and pool records and finishing the day with a 21-point advantage over the second-place team.

For the first time ever, the Loomis Chaffee boys swim team defeated Phillips Exeter on Saturday. The 100-81 victory, fueled by two school records and many personal bests, delighted the home crowd in Hedges Pool.

There's nothing like the unexpected to bolster the resilience of a team as the boys and girls swim teams demonstrated this week.
