In the 17th event of the evening, it was once again Hobbs to pick up the win as she swam her way to an easy 10-second victory over her closest competitor in the 100-Yard Backstroke. Maritime also picked up its sixth win on the women’s side in the last event as Crandall along with Stanton, and fellow freshmen Abigail Granit (Forked River, N.J./Lacey Township) and Kelsey Ireland (Mount Olive, N.J./Mount Olive) collected a three-second win over Brooklyn in the 200-Yard Freestyle Relay.

The men’s team had seven overall wins on the night, that saw the team start off with its own win in the 200-Yard Medley Relay as senior Zach Haughn (Fairfield, Conn./Fairfield Prep.), sophomore Craig Lyon (Ronkonkoma, N.Y./Sachem North), senior Daniel Hemmer (Springfield, Va./West Springfield), and senior Collin McNamara (Somerville, N.J./St. Joseph-Metuchen) recorded a time of 1:46.14 to seal the win. Maritime’s second relay team of junior Matthew Cannon (Sparta, N.J./Sparta), classmate Brendan Erskine (Maspeth, N.Y./Archbishop Molloy), sophomore Jonathan Murray (Long Beach, N.Y./Kellenberg), and rookie John Dean (Milton, Del./Cape Henlopen) were just two seconds off the pace.

Junior Matthew Collins (Brooklyn, N.Y./Townsend Harris) had himself an easy go of it in the 1000-Yard Freestyle as he coasted his way to a victory almost two minutes ahead of the nearest Brooklyn competitor.

Freshman Douglas Russell (Oakdale, N.Y./Connetquot), classmate Andrew Katz (Elwood, N.Y./John Glenn), and Dean finished 1-2-3 for Maritime in the 200-Yard Freestyle, as the trio combined for 16 of the 19 points given out in the event.

The Privateers also swept the board in the 50-Yard Freestyle as McNamara, senior Jimmy Jorgenson (Rochester, N.Y./Brighton) and junior Peter Skerys (Sag Harbor, N.Y./Pierson) completed the sweep in the event with all three finishing in less than 25 seconds.

Erskine, sophomore Jonathan Murray (Long Beach, N.Y./Kellenberg), and classmate Charles Schnebel (Stony Brook, N.Y./Ward Melville) continued the Privateers sweep-streak in the 200-Yard Individual Medley. Hemmer, Collins and sophomore Robert Lewis (Belchertown, Mass./Belchertown) followed that up by finishing in the top three of the 100-Yard Butterfly.

Maritime continued to roll with Haughn, Cannon and junior Ryan Fitzgerald (Miller Place, N.Y./Miller Place) finishing in the top three in the 100-Yard Backstroke event for the men’s team seventh race victory of the night.
