Greene 60, Sherburne-Earlville 32
SHERBURNE – Greene remained unbeaten on the season, and Lizzy Buhl shattered her own school record in the 200 freestyle Tuesday at Sherburne-Earlville.
Buhl, who hasn’t swam the 200 free since the middle of last year, dropped five seconds off her own low time finishing in 2:09.55. The Trojans wound up with nine wins in 11 events with Allison Norton, Kayla Sevey, Paige Vermaat, and Helen Zaengle finding the winners’ circle.
Samantha Martin grabbed two wins for S-E in the loss. “I think it would have been easy to look past S-E or any other team tonight with Delhi coming up on Friday,” said Greene coach Mike Platta. “But our goal this year is to focus on one meet at a time, one race at a time. There is no unimportant lane or swim for us, and every point counts. We are consistently getting competitive swims regardless of who is swimming.”

Norwich 3, Chenango Forks 2
NORWICH – Norwich won a close game when it counted most, and ended a three-year winless drought in the Southern Tier Athletic Conference outlasting Chenango Forks Tuesday, 13-25, 25-14, 25-9, 16-25, 25-23.
In a seesaw final game, Haley Squires finished off the victory for Norwich serving out the final two points. “We played strong second and third games to take the lead, but I think we started to think too much (about winning) in that fourth game,” said Norwich coach Paul Sims. “We have talked about finishing out games, and we did that tonight. Now that we have accomplished that, I think it will give us some momentum going into the rest of the season.”
Kerzia Hopson had a season-high 19 assists for Norwich, while Mandy Ingraham charted 12 kills and three aces.
Norwich hosts Windsor Thursday.
CF: Jenna Rupert, 5 aces; Katie Husband, 6 assists; Beth Schiraldi, 6 kills. Michelle Manwich, 1 block.
