January 29, 2023

The Cape boys’ and Sussex Academy girls’ swim teams each remained undefeated at 11-0, as the two powerhouse squads met at the Sussex Academy Aquatic Center Jan. 27. The Cape girls moved to 9-2, while the Seahawks boys are now 8-3.

The Seahawks girls’ squad took the top spot in 10 of 11 events, scoring a 103-67 victory. The Vikings boys won 9 of 11 events to secure a 108-62 win.

“If you don’t circle this meet on your calendar at the beginning of the season, you’re being foolish,” said Sussex Academy coach Tom Martiner. “It brings out the best in both teams. Great job to Cape with the quality and quantity on their team.”

“Overall, I feel it was a great meet for both programs,” said Cape coach Bill Geppert. “All the kids swam awesome. Meets like this are fantastic for dropping times, and I think it made all of us better.”
