NEW HAVEN \u2014 Depth is a key factor when it comes to winning team titles in championship meets. Fairfield Prep didn\u2019t have a win among its swimmers at the Southern Connecticut Conference championship on Wednesday at Southern Connecticut State. But its depth in the championship heats paid off for a team title win with 1,007 points. Xavier was second with 957 points and North Haven co-op was third with 822. Another contributing factor to Fairfield Prep\u2019s team title was depth in the diving championships that were held on Saturday at Sheehan. Thomas Kehoe won the diving championship with 487.25 points and the Jesuits captured sixth through ninth \u2014 6. Dylan Morrissey (290.95), 7. John McDermott (288.55), 8. Rocco Leito (283.05) and 9. John Mathews (271.85). \u201cNo swim wins but so many guys came through for us tonight,\u201d Fairfield Prep coach Rick Hutchinson said. It is his eighth title in the 10 years he has coached the Jesuits and their first since 2019. \u201cThe diving was key for us and our divers have been coming through for us all season,\u201d Hutchinson said. \u201cFrom our seniors to our freshmen, they all contributed. This is a great way to go into the state meets.\u201d Among the top contributors for the Jesuits were Owen Tharrington and the coach\u2019s son, Hugh Hutchinson. Tharrington was second in the 100 backstroke (51.70) and second in the 100 butterfly (52.14) and Hutchinson was third in the 500 freestyle (4:52.13). Xavier earns six wins Xavier kicked off the meet with wins in the first two events. The Falcons won the 200 medley relay in 1:38.38 and Maxwell Enes won the 200 freestyle in 1:45.08. Teammate Noah San Vicente was a close second in 1:45.10. San Vicente led most of the 200 freestyle and Enes came on strong to take the lead in the last lap for the win. San Vicente came back to win the 500 freestyle. Also getting a win for the Falcons was Nikita Zuev with a time of 48.09 in the 100 freestyle. The Falcons also won the 200 freestyle (1:28.60) and the 400 freestyle relay (3:15.74). \u201cWe have no divers, so as far as the team title is concerned, we had to make up 140 points coming in here and that is tough,\u201d Xavier coach Bill Evison said. \u201cEveryone who won for us tonight I expected to be in the top two or three in their event. We aren\u2019t shaved yet, so I am very happy and excited with the wins we\u2019ve had tonight. All our guys worked hard for this.\u201d Lee wins a pair Elliot Lee of Hand won the 50 freestyle in 20.98 and won the 100 butterfly in 50.0. He led start to finish in both events. \u201cAll the hard work I put in during the regular season paid off tonight,\u201d Lee said \u201cI swam the events the way I always swim. I go out hard, get an early lead and whatever happens, happens. \u201cGetting two wins is special, it gives you some momentum going into the state meets. Everyone on our team has been working hard and a lot of our swimmers are doing well tonight. We\u2019re ready for the states.\u201d Henry missing, Conner wins two for North Haven Changing the complexion of the meet was the loss of North Haven co-op standout Finn Henry who missed the meet due to COVID-19. Henry was the favorite in the 200 freestyle and 500 freestyle. He would have also competed in relays. \u201cLosing Henry is a big loss,\u201d North Haven co-op coach Mike O\u2019Brien said. \u201cBut we expect him to be back for the state meets.\u201d Brendan Conner came through with a win for North Haven in the 200 individual medley (1:55.57) and he won the 100 backstroke (50.52). \u201cIt was disappointing Finn Henry wasn\u2019t here tonight,\u201d Rick Hutchinson said. \u201cWe all hope he is doing well.\u201d SCC Championships (at New Haven) Team Results: 1.
