York Manor's 254-245 upset victory over Stoneleigh — the Sharks' first dual-meet loss in six years (also to the Makos) under coaches George Kennedy and Brian Loeffler — could have a ripple effect across Freestate Swim League pools for the rest of the season. That's because York Manor had already lost to Hampton, making each regular-season meet before the season-ending Trophy Meet all the more important. The Makos made sure it happened, rallying in the relays to prevail in the Sharks' pool for head coach Dani Korman and assistants Jeni Zeigler and Andrew Hogan Trailing by 16 points at the end of backstroke, York Manor came back to win eight of the 10 butterfly events to take a two-point lead.
