Winter sports preview: PMHS boys swimming looks for repeat of last season’s success


Boys swimming and diving at PMHS hopes to make a splash this season with a strong returning lineup and the chance to dominate at several competitive events.

Last winter, the team championed the sectional swimming scene. Led by coach Chris Driwinga, it achieved a stellar 8-2 record. Andy Wang and Matt Michailoff, among others, received All League honors.

Returning swimmers include senior captains Michailoff and Spencer Conrad, as well as Erik Fontanella, Gianluca Polenzani and Bobby Langerfeld.

“We also have a talented underclassmen roster and team all around,” said Michailoff. “Our 200 freestyle and 400 freestyle relay look to be very strong this year.”

The team is already logging hours in the pool Monday through Thursday at Sarah Lawrence College.

“Our biggest rival is Eastchester, which will be a very close meet and our senior night,” said Michailoff. “Other very competitive meets will include Suffern, New Rochelle-Bronxville and Arlington.”

Their season opener will take place on Dec. 4 at Sarah Lawrence versus New Rochelle-Bronxville.
