— Monroe-Woodbury Athletic Director Lori Hock announced that Liam Allen, Andrew Choi, Anthony Bruno and Ian Ackerman, members of the Boys Varsity Swim team coached by Justin Wright, were selected as the “Athletes of the Week” for the period ending Feb. 1.

These "four swimmers have been re-writing history in Section IX Swimming," Wright wrote in the press release detailing the selections. "Liam Allen, Andrew Choi, Anthony Bruno and Ian Ackerman have teamed up to make states in all three swimming relays: 200 medley, 200 free and 400 free.

"Furthermore," their coach added, "they have broken a total of five pool records: the 200 free relay in Cornwall, the 200 medley in Warwick and all three at their home pool.

"The efforts of these young men were a major factor in the team wrapping up another undefeated season and division title," Wright concluded. "Next up will be OCIAA, Sections and States. Nice work guys!"
