Esquirrol wins twice for co-op


NEW LONDON — The Ledyard/Stonington co-op boys’ swimming team defeated New London 72-37 in an ECC meet Tuesday.

The score is deceiving in that at least one Ledyard/Stonington athlete swam exposition in every event, meaning that they were not eligible to score points.

It is swimming’s version of the mercy rule.

Stonington’s Collin Esquirol swam for keeps in the 100-yard freestyle and 100 back stroke, winning both races. He took the free in 54.08 seconds and the back in 1:03.70.

John Moody won the 200 individual medley in 2:25.23 and had the fastest time in the backstroke (1:02.91) but did not score.

Moody also combined with Esquirrol and two Ledyard boys to officially win the meet-opening 200 medley relay.

Their time of 2:03.81 was not as fast as the expo foursome that included Stonington’s Dylan LaPoint, Sarah Morrison and Matt Planchon (2:03.37).

Morrison won the 100 breaststroke in 1:37.60.

Alex Green of Stonington was first in the 200 free, swimming the event in 2:13.38.

Green and Alex Orf of Stonington had the best time in the 200 free relay (1:51.80) but did not score. Meghan Talbot of Stonington was on the foursome that was credited with first place in a time of 1:57.

Orf won the 50 freestyle (25.40) and Jacob Aubrecht was on the winning 400 free relay team that posted a time of 4:27.27.

Ledyard/Stonington improved to 8-4 overall, 7-4 in the ECC. New London is 0-11, 0-11.
