MIAA swimming: Behind record-breaker, Milton boys claim Division … – The Patriot Ledger

Milton High junior Jackson Wagner continued to smash records in the pool last week, leading the Wildcats’ fall boys swimming and diving team to a Division 2 state championship.
Wagner set new state meet marks in the 100-yard freestyle (48.06 seconds) and the 100 backstroke (56.47). Previously he took records for the Bay State Conference in the 200 individual medley (2:05.87) and at the MIAA South Sectionals in the 50 free (22.55) and 100 back (55.11).
Wagner’s efforts at last week’s state championships at MIT helped the Wildcats win the team crown. Milton scored 225 points, tops among the six teams competing. North Andover was runner-up with 184 points. Braintree (62) was fifth.
Milton sophomore Ryan Kelly won the 50 free (23.13) and placed second in the 100 free (50.75). At South Sectionals he claimed the 200 free (meet-record 1:52.48) and 100 free (50.98).
Jackson and Wagner also swam on the 200 medley relay (with Colby Moskos and Malachi Buchanan) that was second at states in a school-record 1:46.28. That quartet also swam the 400 free relay that set meet and school records with a winning time of 3:26.93.
Milton’s Andrew Scapicchio was the only local diver who competed at states, scoring 358.35. He also finished first at the Bay State Conference meet and at South Sectionals.

Milton coach Jessica Gillooly said Kaleigh Boynton “has had a great four years on the swim team. She is such an important part of the team and is always willing to swim anything.”
