Back-to-back sectional championships were on the minds of the Colts Neck High School girls’ swimming team when it squared off against West Windsor-Plainsboro High School North in the NJSIAA Central Jersey, Public B championship meet on Feb. 13 at the Neptune Aquatics Center.
The Cougars got the job done by rolling to an impressive victory, 107-63, to win their second straight state sectional championship.
“I’m very fortunate to coach the student-athletes I have and they swim amazingly,” said Colts Neck coach Dennis Bruck. “The work these girls do on their own with their club team is amazing. The unity and family atmosphere that both our boys’ and girls’ teams have as one is building a great culture for our program.”
Colts Neck came out strong to begin the meet, grabbing gold in each of the first events, the 200-yard medley relay, the 200-yard freestyle and the 200-yard intermediate medley.
Colts Neck rolled to a first place in the 200-yard freestyle relay and had seven first places out of the 11 events in the meet.
This was Colts Neck’s third straight year in the sectional final, losing to WWP North in 2018, 90-80.
The Cougars defeated Middletown High School South in the sectional final last year, 93-77.
Colts Neck (13-0) will next swim against Moorestown High School in the state semifinals.
