Bristol Central outlasts Bristol Eastern in spirited city girls swim meet

Bristol Central girls swimming and diving saw its undefeated season end Friday in a close 92-88 loss to Windsor at the Dennis Malone Aquatic Center.
On Saturday night, it looked like city rival Bristol Eastern was going to deliver another defeat. For the second time in a week, however, the Ram 400-yard freestyle relay teams came up big.
“BC Girls Swim are City Champs 52-50!” head coach Adrienne Bentley tweeted. “Both of our 400 free relays turned on and pulled out the win!”
Central avoided Eastern’s upset bid in a spirited city meet at the Malone Center that also included St. Paul. The Rams have two meets remaining, and both are in Bristol. Central hosts Middletown on Tuesday at 4, then takes on Eastern again on Oct. 24. at 3:45. The Rams are the road team in the meet against the Lancers.
Eastern still has four meets left in the regular season. The Lancers are at Maloney/Platt on Tuesday and swim Sacred Heart Academy at Albertus Magnus College on Thursday. Eastern hits the road again Friday against Farmington, then hosts Central on Oct. 24.
St. Paul ends its regular season on the road with meets against Watertown on Tuesday and Seymour on Friday.
