PLAINVILLE – The Plainville swimming team dropped a tough 92-80 decision to Naugatuck Valley League foe Sacred Heart 92-80 on Thursday, Oct. 3 from the high school pool in Plainville.
The Blue Devils managed to take first place in quite a few events as Megan Farmer had quite a busy day.
In the 50 meter freestyle, Farmer won the event in a blazing 27.29 seconds. In the 100 freestyle, the swimmer was once again victorious and took first place in just over a minute (1:00.32).
Plainville also took a couple of other 100 meter events as Sydney McGough and Caitlin Erb won competitive affairs.
McGough nabbed first billing in the 100 backstroke (1:08.86) while Erb was the victor of the 100 breast (1:29.65).
The Blue Devils also snatched first place in a relay event as well.
In the 400 relay, Megan Dalena, Taylor Rogers, McGough and Farmer won the event in a final time of 4:16.52.
The loss to Sacred Heart dropped the Blue Devils to 1-7 on the season but the squad bounced back the following Friday with an 86-84 triumph over the tri-op of Enfield/Somers/Fermi.
