N-W swimmers channel past success

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — “We had a great season last year,” Menges said. “We graduated a lot of seniors and I’m looking forward to working with a younger team this year.

“Twenty of our 27 guys are sophomores or younger. We had a lot of freshmen who swam varsity as eighth graders last year that I expect big things from this season.”

Menges said Joslin, Luckman and Toth should be key components of his relays, which he expects to be a strength for his team. All three participated in relays at the state championships last year, and Toth has swam the 200- and 500-meter freestyles the past two seasons. Menges said each has a shot at making it in individual races this year.

The Spartans’ first meet is this Tuesday at Clarence against one of the top programs in Western New York.

“We swim against all the big schools,” Menges said. “It was something we did for the first time last year, but I think it helped us tremendously, especially when we got to the postseason. It’s definitely a barometer of where we’re at.”
