CT Post, March 16, 2011

MIDDLETOWN -- Despite not winning a single event, the Fairfield Prep swim team still managed to finish second for the fourth straight season at the Class LL swimming championships Tuesday night at Wesleyan.

The Jesuits finished with 480.5 points, well behind Greenwich, which finished with 667 points while winning its 19th straight title and 39th in 40 seasons.

Staples, getting a first-place out of Nathaniel Boley in the 100 backstroke (53.01) and two third-place finishes in the relays, was fifth with 451.6 points.

Fairfield Prep coach Bruce Jaffee was pleased with his young team's second-place showing.

"What our team accomplished tonight was unbelievable," Jaffee said. "Ninety percent of our team is freshmen and sophomores. Going into the season, no one thought we could finish 10th at this meet, let alone second. They really swam like champions tonight."
