The depth of the Sea Dragons squad proved to be the difference as the pulled out the 99-79 victory over FoJo.
“Gloversville’s depth was too much for Fonda-Johnstown to overcome,” Fonda-Johnstown coach Ken Hoefs said. “We split the first place finishes but [Gloversville-Mayfield] had more second and third-place finished, which was what decided the meet. Fonda-Johnstown had many swimmers improve their personal best times for the season and swimming against Gloversville does that.”
