Per­fect day for New­town’s Swier­but

The News-Times - - SPORTS - By Dan Nowak

WE­STON — It was a pretty good day for New­town stand­out Carly Swier­but at the South-West Con­fer­ence track and field cham­pi­onship meet on Wed­nes­day.

In fact, it was a per­fect day.

Swier­but came away with three wins in the girls com­pe­ti­tion with vic­to­ries in the 100 (12.20 sec­onds), the 400 (57.19) and capped the day with a win in the 200 in a meet-record 25.37.

It was a per­fect day for We­ston too. The Tro­jans won the boys team ti­tle with 142 points, Ma­suk was se­cond with 98 and Pomperaug third with 97. We­ston won the girls ti­tle with 152 points, New­town was se­cond with 119.5 and Bar­low was third with 90.

“I was feel­ing pretty good to­day com­ing into this meet,” said Swier­but, who has com­mit­ted to run track at Wil­liam and Mary. “For me, it was a per­fect day. The weather was great and I just felt good on the track. Pre­par­ing for this meet I was just look­ing to place well. This is a good meet to pre­pare for the tough com­pe­ti­tion you face in the state meets.

“To get all th­ese wins, it’s so ex­cit­ing. Ev­ery­thing re­ally came to­gether to­day for me and our whole team. We had a lot of girls qual­ify for the states (CIAC Class LL) and that was great too.”

The day also turned out to be per­fect for fresh­man Shae Greene of We­ston. Ranked No. 1 in New Eng­land in the javelin, she won the event in a meet record and league record

134 feet, 6 inches. Emma Crowcroft of New Mil­ford held the pre­vi­ous SWC meet record (131-9) set in

2009 and she also held the league record (132-9) set in

2009.

“I’m so ex­cited to get that dis­tance,” Greene said. “Just be­fore nmy last throw, one of my team­mates threw wa­ter on me and said it was holy wa­ter. The wa­ter felt good and all the sup­port I got from my team cheer­ing for me re­ally pumped me up.

“When I let it go, I wasn’t sure if I could get that kind of dis­tance. But I was so happy to see that it went 134. One of the rea­sons for my success this sea­son is I keep my mind up­beat. I al­ways stay pos­i­tive and that works for me.

Mariella Sch­weitzer of Bar­low was a dou­ble winner in the girls com­pe­ti­tion with a win in the 300 hur­dles (45.15) and the 100

hur­dles (15.37). Sarah Nwacki of New­town won the dis­cus (103-7 and won the shot put (34-2.25).

In the boys com­pe­ti­tion, Conor Mahoney of Ma­suk and Ai­dan McShane of Ma­suk each came away with a pair of wins. Mahoney won the 100 (10.98, meet record) and the 200 (22.15, leage and meet record). McShane won the 110 hur­dles (14.93) and the 300 hur­dles (40.79).
