Taconic boys swimming defeated New Lebanon on Monday.

NEW LEBANON, N.Y. — Late wins by Taconic swimmers Ben Bradway and Scott Langlois gve the Green and Gold boys team enough of a cushion to hold off the New Lebanon/Berlin co-op 47-45.

Taconic had cut the home team's lead to two points with a win in the 200-meter free relay. Ben and Jonathan Bradway came back with a 1-2 finish in the 100 backstroke and Langlois won in the 100 breaststroke, giving Taconic a six-point lead.

While the co-op finished first in the 400 free relay, Taconic finishing second gave the Green and Gold the victory.

Taconic's Stevie Zuccalo scored double individual wins, taking the 50 and 100 freestyle races.

New Lebanon/Berlin is a co-ed, co-op, so the Taconic girls competed against themselves.
