Swim Meets, dominant win, rival Delran

With the winter sports season complete, it is time to bring back one of the most popular features of the site, a look back at the top 5 events from each sport during the 2015-2016 winter season. We begin the look back with the Top 5 Swim Meets of the year. Pirates swimming finished the year 10-5 and advanced to the Central, Group B semifinals.

We begin with number five:

#5: Rancocas Valley (98) at Cinnaminson (72) January 16

The Pirates took on the Red Devils for the second time this season in one of the final swim meets of the year on January 16. Cinnaminson gave Rancocas Valley a run for its money by scoring an incredible 72 points. The Pirates were much-improved from the first time these two teams met on opening day, which saw Rancocas Valley take home a 114-56 victory. The Pirates won the 200 Medley Relay, the 200 Free, the 500 Free, the 200 Free Relay and the 100 Breaststroke.

#4: Cinnaminson (97) at Delran (73) January 26

In the final meet of the regular season, the Pirates bested Delran to pick up win number eight. It was their second win of the season against the Bears, which was especially sweet after being swept by the rivals from across the border last season. Cinnaminson won the 100 Breaststroke and 400 Free Relay at the end of the meet to secure the victory with the post-season looming large.

#3: Cinnaminson at the BCSL Meet January 29

The Pirates had an excellent showing at the annual BCSL Meet on January 29. The Pirates won the 200 Medley Relay in 1:42.07, Lily Black won the 200 Free in 1:56.89 and Brian Finnan won the 100 Breaststroke. All told; the Pirates took home six gold medals, 17 silver medals and one bronze medal. There were five 1st Team All County selections and five 2nd Team All County selections.

#2: Brick Memorial (75) at Cinnaminson (95) February 1

In the first round of the Central, Group B Tournament the Pirates welcomed Brick Memorial to the pool for the first-ever home playoff swim meet for Cinnaminson. The Pirates picked up a 95-75 victory, their ninth of the season, to advance to the quarterfinal round of the tourney. Cinnaminson won six events for the 20-point meet victory.

#1: Cinnaminson (102) at Jackson Memorial (68) February 4

Cinnaminson advanced to the sectional quarterfinal round to take on Jackson Memorial on February 4. The Pirates dominated this meet, coming away with victory number 10 by a final score of 102-68. In fact, the Pirates secured the victory before the final event of the meet even hit the pool, that’s how far in front they were. Cinnaminson still won the final event just for good measure. It was one of nine event wins on the day.
