Mt. Anthony sweeps St. Joe

PITTSFIELD -- Despite dropping both duals -- the girls lost 56-38 and the boys fell 44-27 -- St. Joseph got two wins each from Aileen Archambault, Jessie Tobin and Wyatt Porter on Tuesday.

Tobin won the 50 free (26.72) and the 100 back (1:08.03) and Archambault took the 200 free (2:19.1) and the 500 free (6:27) to lead the St. Joe girls.

"With Jessie, I feel like I could put her anywhere and she could win," St. Joe coach Shannon McMahon said. "Aileen's pretty consistent when she swims her 200 and her 500."

On the boys side, Porter won the 200 free (2:30.18) and the 500 free (7:11.75).

"For him, I think it's been coming," McMahon said. "He was due to get a couple of wins. He likes those two events, so he's been working hard."
