Torres, Kennon Win Big as County Swimming Champs

RYE, N.Y – Nick Torres was among the smallest in the pool and teammate Declan Kennon the tallest, but both swimmers were equally important to Lake Isle’s third-place finish in Thursday’s Westchester County Swimming Championships at Rye Playland Pool.

Torres, a big winner during Lake Isle’s dual meet season despite his years and size, won three events, including the boys’ 10-and-under 50 butterfly on the final day. Lake Isle, the six-time defending team champion, placed third behind Chappaqua and team winner Greenburgh.

The Lake Isle boys were tops in points in the boys’ team competition ahead of Scarsdale Town Pool and Greenburgh.

“It was really competitive and there were a lot of good kids who were close to me,” said Torres, who clocked .31.61 in the tace and earned a total of 36 points for his three first-place wins in the meet. “This was my first time here, so it was very good. I wanted to win the team championship, but we were a few points behind. I was a little tired at the end of the meet for the relay.”

Kennon, a tall, blonde-haired, athletic swimmer who wore a blue velvet top hat between races and sported a blue painted “Go Lake Isle!” painted on his back, showed his skill in the four strokes by winning the boys’ 17-and-under 200 Individual medley, a favorite event of his. He did a time of 2.05.48, his best of the week.

“I knew it was a race I had to work hard in to win,” Kennon said. “There was a lot of strong competition. This is a race I enjoy, so I thought I had a chance. The beginning of the week was a little rough start, but it came together for me.”
