It was a mixed bag for the Mustangs at the Bay State Conference Swimming and Diving Championship on Sunday at Wellesley College as the boys contingent took first out of the three team competing while the girls settled for seventh out of 11 squads.
The boys got individual wins from Eddie Hernon, Jimmy Conley, Nick Gaetani and Anthony Rodriguez, all of whom broke team records in the process, in piling up 458 points, easily outdistancing Walpole (89) and Braintree (74).
The girls scored 122 points, led by Patricia Lee. The senior captain was second in the 100-yard backstroke and fourth in the 200 individual medley to account for 32 points.
The 200 medley relay team of Patricia Lee, Marguerite Lee, Charlotte Rivard and Evelyn Metta swam a season-best time to take seventh, but Norwood lost both Evelyn and Alex Metta early in the meet after Alex took ill and Evelyn accompanied her to the hospital.
Rivard placed individually in two events, taking 10th in the 50 free and 16th in the 100 butterfly, while Meaghan Shaughnessy was 14th in the 100 free.
All four divers scored points as Kristen Folan was sixth, Mackenzie Begley ninth, Brianna Whelan 13th and Kelly O’Rourke 16th, a first for the program.
Norwood will have 14 swimmers and divers competing tomorrow at MIT in the South sectionals.
