Amity gained 2nd place title in SCC Championships and nine Spartan Swimmers qualified for the All SCC Team on Wednesday, Feb. 27 at Southern CT State University.

The Spartans received 1st place performances from A.J. Pite in the 200 I.M. and 100 Breaststroke and second-year winner Dylan Swanepoel in the 200 Free and the 500 Free, with each swimmer winning two events for Amity.
