Deerfield traveled to Northfield Mount Herman to battle NMH and Bement in a closely contested triple dual meet. The team won several events including Declan Culinane in the 50 free, swimming a blazing :24.9 and Lucy Miquel coming from behind in the 50 butterfly. However the teams were truly evenly matched in this format and were in a virtual tie with 4 events to go. The 50 backstroke did little to break this tie with all 3 teams splitting the points. NMH took the lead with strong performances in the 100 breaststroke. Bement roared back in the 50 breaststroke with Deerfield close behind featuring strong swims by Daniel Kang and Ismay Andersen. The meets were finally determined in the last event, the 400 free relay. NMH won the event and defeated DA, but Deerfield’s 3rd place finish was enough to top Bement securing the team’s first victory of the year.
