Since 1990, there has only been one swim team to capture the Shore Conference Championship: the CBA Colts.
Christian Brothers won its 30th consecutive Shore Conference title on Thursday afternoon at the Rutgers University Aquatics Center in Piscataway.
The Colts recorded 357.5 points, more than 150 points better than second place Manasquan. CBA won four different events to separate themselves from the pack.
Individually, senior Ben Dupree won the 200 individual medley in 1:58.59, while junior Kevin Truscio topped the 100 butterfly race in 52.38.
Truscio, Dupree, Matthew D’Elia and Mason Wolf won the 200 medley relay in 1:38.72 and Truscio, Luke Condon, Dupree and Liam Morris finished first in the 400 freestyle relay in 3:18.32.
"I remember being a freshman and winning our sixth straight Shore Conference title. This program is so much more than one year or one team. It's been built on the backs of countless alumni who have set a standard of excellence future swimmers aspire to," head coach Vito Chiaravalloti said. "If it wasn't for the leadership of coach Mike Sullivan and the determination of those early Colts, this program would not have the rich tradition we enjoy today. Every team since that inaugural 1990 season deserves credit for what this program has now become."
The Colts will now look forward to the state semifinal meet on February 17th, which would advance them to the state championship on February 23rd.
