SCC GIRLS SWIMMING GAMEDAY
Top challengers: Amity (11-0, 10-0 SCC), Cheshire (9-1), Branford (8-2)
When: Today, 6 p.m.
Where: Southern Connecticut State, New Haven
Championship meet history: In 2010, Cheshire won its 17th straight SCC meet title. Amity broke the string of titles with a team championship in 2011 and Cheshire won again in 2012.
What to look for: The team title will come down to the depth of Cheshire and Amity although other teams have the talent to come away with individual wins. Amity is led by Dana Chung, Maddie Snow, Melissa Gulia, Jessica Kochiss, Jenny Schwartz and Liz Lubin. “We have some talent and depth but it take some doing to beat Cheshire,” Amity coach Todd Rainey said. “Cheshire has a lot of talented girls swimming in the meet, they have numbers. Branford is strong too.” Among the top swimmers for Cheshire are Lindsay Smalec, Julie Senft, Denise Costello, Alison Sklanka and Laura Mongillo. Other swimmers expected to do well include Lauren Rasile of Branford and Jamie Robinson of Sacred Heart Academy.
You should know: Amity defeated Cheshire 101-85 last week to clinch the SCC regular season dual-meet title.
