This is getting to be a habit, but its certainly a good one. The Dansville boys’ swimming squad received some stand-out performances from Isaiah Hale and company to bring home the hardware from Bath in the Class C sectional swimming finals on Friday night.

This is getting to be a habit, but its certainly a good one. The Dansville boys’ swimming squad received some stand-out performances from Isaiah Hale and company to bring home the hardware from Bath in the Class C sectional swimming finals on Friday night.


The senior swimmer posted a state-qualifying time of 1:00.57 in the 100-yard breaststroke in the next-to-final event lifting Dansville to the victory. Dansville finished first with a total of 319.5 points, Bath was second with a 263 and Wayland-Cohocton third at 241.


Hale was also first in the 200 individual medley and was part of both victorious 200 medley and 400 freestyle relays for the Mustangs. Needless to say, it was quite a day.


Mustang first-place finishers included the 200 medley relay team of Jake Olson, Hale, Nicchia McFadden and Jon Vogler at 1:44.93. Wayland-Cohocton took second in the event with a team of Dylan Pebbles, Tom Saxton, Nathan Stevenson and Devin Cooley at 1:50.44.


Hale took the 200 individual medley at 2:04.82 and the 100 breaststroke at 1:00.57. Dansville also won the 400 freestyle relay with the team of Olson, Vogler, McFadden and Hale at 3:25.73.


Congratulations to coach Jim Welch on taking home the top spot and best of luck in his bid to get a larger trophy case for swimming at the school.
