NORWALK, Conn. The Norwalk-Brien McMahon girls swim team continues to make waves throughout the Fairfield County Interscholastic Athletic Conference. The team rolled to 3-0 on the young season Monday with a 96-60 victory over Danbury High.The co-op team opened its season with an eye-opening win last week over Staples, the first time in coach Rebecca Rubin's nine years as coach to beat the Westport team. Norwalk-McMahon had an easier time with the Hatters, dominating the meet from start to finish.
"They all did a really good job,'' Rubin said. "They really worked together as a team, which is one of the things that's most important. Some of them had some really good swims."Norwalk-McMahon opened the meet with a win in the 200-yard medley relay with Katie Wargo, Paige Delago, Stephanie Czulewicz and Lauren Czulewicz.Stephanie Czulewicz also won the 200 individual medley and 100 backstroke. Other individual wins included Katie Baritz (diving), Alexis Alvarez (200 free), Sophia Theoklitos (50 free), Paige Delago (100 butterfly), Jess Rodney (100 free), Lynette Lopez (100 breast) and Amelia Ornato (500 free). The 400 free relay of Theoklitos, Ornato, Alvarez and Stephanie Czulewicz also cruised to victory."Besides Staples, we haven't had anybody yet that's been really competitive,'' Rubin said. "We've been able to use our depth. We'll see how we do against some of the other teams in the league that will be able to match our depth."Norwalk-McMahon meets Fairfield Ludlowe on Oct. 5 and takes on Westhill-Stamford on Oct. 6. The meet against the Stamford schools should be tight and give the Bears a better reflection on how they stack up against some of the upper-echelon teams in the league.
