Despite winning six out of the 11 events, the Gill St. Bernard’s boys’ swim team fell to Somerville on Wednesday, December 11th, by the score of 103-64.
Leading the way for the Knights were seniors Jonathan Osma and Rob Brandl, both winning two events. The day was especially memorable for Osma, as he re-broke his school records in the 200 individual medley (2:27.59) and 100 backstroke (1:05.00). Brandl also had impressive swims in the 200 freestyle (2:14.96) and 100 butterfly (1:06.31).
Also coming out victorious for GSB was the boys’ 200 medley relay team of Brandl, Osma, senior Adrian Massuet, and junior Jake Baber in a time of 1:55.31. That same relay team also came together to touch first in the 200 freestyle relay in a time of 1:43.48.
“I was really proud of the boys and their efforts,” said head coach Nolan Silbernagel. “They clearly swam fast, and that shows by winning the majority of the races. Somerville has a lot of depth, so it was a tough meet, but I like where our times are at right now and how they are performing.”
The Knights’ next conference meet is against Voorhees on Wednesday, December 18th.
