It was the third straight season Cherry Hill East and Bridgewater-Raritan met in the Public A final, after the two split the first two meetings with Bridgewater-Raritan emerging victorious last year. Cherry Hill East has won 11 straight sectional titles and has been in the Public A final every year since since 2014, and this season was one of its best in that stretch. The only loss for Cherry Hill East came against Non-Public A champion Christian Brothers Academy, with the Cougars scoring at least 100 points in its 11 wins. Trent Russano's first-place finishes in the 50 and 100 free for Bridgewater-Raritan were the two exceptions, but even in those two events the Panthers only held a combined two-point advantage.
Christian Brothers Academy jumped ahead from the start for its second straight Non-Public A title (John Munson | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com). The Colts took first and second in the 200 medley relay to start the meet, and the Shore Conference power just fed off that energy going forward. The win completed CBA's first undefeated campaign since the 2013-14 season, finishing off a stellar season that included a win against Public A finalist Cherry Hill East, a Monmouth County title and a Shore Conference title. "We have a really good group of freshmen and sophomores this year so I feel really confident handing this team off," Retterer said.
The boys swam really well today and Scotch Plains is a really good team, Mainland coach Brian Booth said. Other winners include Mainlands Liam Garbutt (100 freestyle) and Truong (100 breast) and Scotch Plains-Fanwoods Alan Shao (100 backstroke). Scotch Plains-Fanwoods team of Corey He, Shao, Josh Cohen, and Matthew London won the 400 freestyle relay. After we lost a lot of people after last year, we all had to pull everything together and encourage each other, Truong added.
