Mariotti, Everett help Wellsville open home slate with giant win over C-S
WELLSVILLE — After splitting their first two meets of the season over the road, the Wellsville Lions marked their return home on Thursday to open their first meet in front of their crown with the Campbell-Savona Panthers in town for a swim.
It was a meet where the Lions were able to build a strong start in the first half, and then, provide an even stronger finish to round out the night, as the team collected nine top finishes in all, two each from both JT Mariotti and Ethan Everett to fuel up a successful home debut in the water with a 106-64 rout of the Panthers.
Both Mariotti and Everett had one top finish in each half of the meet to propel Wellsville (2-1) towards success, with Mariotti scoring triumphant finishes in the 200 freestyle and later, in the 100 backstroke, while Everett followed up with wins in the 50 freestyle and a winning time in the 100 butterfly to start a second half that saw the hosts record six of the final seven events in the win column.
Wellsville would also record a complete sweep of all three relay events — the 200 medley, the 200 freestyle and 400 freestyle to keep the spark ignited.
The remaining individual winners for the Lions include Ethan Crandell in the 500 freestyle and Ben Jordan in the 100 breaststroke.
The Lions are back in the water on Saturday with a 10 a.m. road trip to Alfred University to take on Hornell.
