TUESDAY SWIMMING: Corso sets a record course and the locals can’t be beat

WALLINGFORD — Sheehan won again. Southington remained unbeaten. Cheshire won its home opener.

Tuesday’s top girls swimming headline, however, ultimately went to a diver.

Lyman Hall junior Maggie Corso broke the six-dive record at her school with the score of 255.80 she compiled in a SCC crossover meet with Jonathan Law at the Sheehan pool.

Corso’s winning score also helped drive the Division II Trojans past the Division I Eagles, 104-82.

Earlier at the Sheehan pool on Tuesday, the host Titans thumped Mercy 96-75.

And over at the Cheshire Community Pool, the Rams swam past Guilford 101-77, while Southington journeyed up to Enfield for a CCC interdivisional meet and came home a 76-44 winner.

That’s a 4-for-4 day, with a record to boot. Here are the details:

Lyman Hall: Along with Corso’s record score in diving, the Trojans had double-winners in Meredith Loughlin, Grace D’Amico and Hailey Baker in improving to 3-1.

Loughlin swept the distance freestyles, clocking in at 2:12.49 in the 200 and 5:58.71 in the 500.

D’Amico won the 200 IM (2:29.03) and 100 backstroke (1:05.91) after leading off the 200 medley relay ahead of Sienna DeLucia, Jessica Rinaldi and Lucia Zito (2:08.25).

The freestyle sprints were won by Natalia Gagliardi and Rinaldi. Gagliardi took the 50 in 26.87. Rinaldi touched in 1:00.66 in the 100.
