Cazenovia’s Smith makes state boys swim meet in two races

first_imgBut throughout the long race, Smith proved a bit quicker than Merkling, and then he pulled away in the last 100 yards, finishing in 4:48.77 to Merkling’s 4:51.74, an improvement of nearly 17 seconds from earlier this season.Since the state qualifying standard was 4:52.52, Smith easily gained a place on the Section III team that will go to Long Island’s Nassau Aquatic Center for the March 6-7 state meet – and he’ll do so in two events.Earlier in the sectional meet, Smith attacked the 200 individual medley. Again, Merkling was the main opposition and this time the Liverpool junior won in 1:57.92. However, Smith, needing to record 2:00.63 to reach the state meet, finished in 1:59.63 to advance. That was an improvement of more than eight seconds over his previous best of 2:08.23.Moving to Saturday’s sectional state qualifier, Smith would go 4:49.92 in the 500 freestyle, finishing a close second to Syracuse’s Belal Hamad, who posted 4:49.71 to get to the top spot.In the 200 IM, Smith improved 1:58.92, still second to Merkling, who won in 1:56.95. And in the 400 freestyle relay, Smith, joining Lucas Weires, Eric Bang and Ben Rabin, went 3:19.94, again second to Liverpool, who went 3:17.79.Three other Cazenovia students swam at the sectional Class A meet, too, with sophomore Cooper Hughes making his way to 18th place in the 50 freestyle in a season-best 24.48 seconds.Freshman Max Vidakovic took part in the 100 backstroke, finishing 24th in 1:09.41, and eighth-grader Eddie Comeau swam in the 100 breaststroke, getting 22nd place in 1:15.58.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story All through this winter, four Cazenovia High School students have taken part in boys swimming with Fayetteville-Manlius, competing in home meets a few blocks from their home campus at Cazenovia College.That included sophomore Quinn Smith, who would go to Thursday’s Section III Class A championships at Nottingham High School and secure spots in next month’s state meet in two different events, winning the 500-yard freestyle.Going into the meet, Smith has posted a time of five minutes, 5.70 seconds that made him the third seed, well behind Liverpool’s Griffin Merkling, the top seed at 4:56.86.center_img Tags: Cazenoviaswimminglast_img read more

Report: Broward Sheriff Tony was Involved in Fatal Shooting at Age 14

first_imgGov. Ron DeSantis selected Tony in January of last year to replace former Sheriff Scott Israel, whom he suspended for what DeSantis considered the Sheriff’s Office’s failures in mass shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in 2018 and the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in 2017.At the time of his appointment to sheriff, Tony, who had been a Coral Springs police sergeant, was operating a consulting business that offers training on active shooter situation.Last November, Tony launched his election campaign against Scott Israel.Meanwhile, Tony has faced criticism in recent weeks by members of the Sheriff’s Office, including deputies’ union president Jeff Bell.Bell has accused Tony of failing to provide deputies with sufficient protective equipment in order to fight COVID-19.Several days later, the sheriff suspended Bell, alleging that he made false statements.On April 20, the deputies union voted that it has no confidence in Tony as their sheriff. Broward County Sheriff Gregory Tony was involved in a fatal shooting in Philadelphia when he was 14 years old, according to the online news website Florida Bulldog.The report states the incident, which occurred on May 3, 1993, resulted in Tony initially being charged as an adult. Tony was found not guilty when the homicide trial was moved to juvenile court. The judge then sealed the court file.Florida Bulldog writes that Tony responded, as part of an email, that “I shot an armed man in self-defense” and that it “was the most difficult and painful experience of my life.”However, people who are close to the victim dispute Tony’s account of the event.To read the full report, go to floridabulldog.org.last_img read more
