In a very congenial, natatorial setting, the Northport-Commack Varsity Girls swim team took on powerhouse Hauppauge-Smithtown last Wednesday at the Hauppauge High School pool.

Hauppauge-Smithtown defeated Northport-Commack, 104-74. But in a sense, both teams were winners as many of the girls qualified for state and county championships.

Lady Hauppauge Eagle senior Leah Treglia was the star of the meet, winning the 200-yard individual medley, 100-yard butterfly and was a member of two first place relay teams to boost the home side.

Northport-Commack Junior Makenna O’Brien finished a close second to Treglia in the 200-yard individual medley. Both ladies qualified for states in this event and Treglia, along with Sofia Burns, Sarah Lucca and MaryGrace Waring are going to states for their time of 1:52.02 in the 200-yard medley relay.

Caitlyn Riordan, of Northport-Commack, won the 200-yard freestyle in 2:04.21 winning by more than two and a half seconds. Riordan also won the 100-yard freestyle in 55.99.  O’Brien won the 500-yard freestyle earning six points for the team and 7th grader London Strasser placed fifth in that event. Halea Duryea-Stern was sixth for the Lady Tiger-Cougars.

Duryea-Stern led a trio of Northport-Commack swimmers to first, second and third in the 100-yard breaststroke. Dorothy Amato and Ornella Bley took home second and third in that event.

Lady Tiger Paige Schilling was competitive in her diving body of work, scoring 155.02 from the judges. Casey Ryan, of Hauppauge-Smithtown, won with 182.47

In the 400-yard freestyle relay, Northport-Commack took first and second place.  Lia Edlin Miller, Paige Simon, Avalina Giehl and Caitlin Lopez were in at 4:05.86. Gianna Negli, Eleanor Johnson, Kristina Rezler and Strasser took second.

Hauppauge-Smithtown dominated in the 100-yard butterfly with Treglia, Lucca and Makayla Lee sweeping the podium for first, second and third.
