Defending champion Hilltoppers overwhelmed by Raiders' Napolitano brothers.
PERTH AMBOY–The seniors on Summit's boys swimming team have put together possibly the best four-year run in program history, including a state sectional title and two appearances in a sectional final. It was truly a remarkable run for the 12 seniors on coach Dave Pease's squad, even if the end wasn't ideal. Summit fell to Scotch Plains, 95-75, in the North 2, Public B final Friday afternoon at the Raritan Bay Area YMCA. The Hilltoppers were defending sectional champions. Fittingly, a pair of seniors, Kirby Voigtman and Kevin Ng, picked up the Hilltoppers' two race wins. Voigtman won the 100 backstroke in 56.39 seconds, beating Scotch Plains' second-place finisher, Will Benn by more than two seconds. Ng won the 100 breastroke in 1:04 flat, …

Fries walks away with lone victory.
It was a rough day for the Summit High School girls swim team as they fell to a powerful Chatham High School, 117-54 on Tuesday evening at the Morris-Union Jointure pool. In fact, the day was so rough that only one Summit swimmer would walk away with a victory. After losing five straight races, senior captain Carey Fries took to the diving platform for the 500 meter freestyle. The senior looked very impressive, recording a 5:18.90 time that would be good enough for first place in the event, bettering second place Chatham by nine seconds. "Carey's going off to college next year and we're going to miss her. She's been a great leader here since she was a freshman and we really can't replace her," head coach John Ross said after the meet. …

Hilltoppers visit Elizabeth at 4:30 p.m.
Four meets into the 2009-10 season, Summit High's girls swimming squad looks like a force to be reckoned with, as it prepares for its final 2009 opponent, Elizabeth, later this afternoon. Summit continues its season at Plainfield after the holiday break on Jan. 14. Summit (3-1) opened the season with a 121-49 victory against in-town rival Oak Knoll on Dec. 1, then placed second behind host Pingry in the Big Blue Tournament with 322 points on Dec. 5. This marked the best finish for a Summit team in the short five-year history of the tournament. Summit has won its last two meets: a 100-69 victory against cross-town rival Kent Place on Dec. 7 and a 98-72 win against Mendham this past Thursday. The victory against Kent Place, combined with the…
