SHENENDEHOWA — Travis Blank swam two personal-best times and the Taconic Hills boys varsity swim team scored 90 points to finish ninth out of 15 teams in the Section II small school swimming championships Saturday at Shenendehowa High School, according to an email from TH coach Tom Russo.

Blank broke two Titans records he set Friday at the Section II Trials — in the 200-meter free and 100 back — and shaved two seconds from his state qualifying time in the former while improving by three-tenths of a second in the latter. Blank is the first TH swimmer to qualify for states.

“I was pleased with our teams’ performance,” Russo said. “Travis Blank swam two personal bests and is moving on to states. Brian Ostrander swam his fastest 100 free in the last swim of his high school career. That’s a great way to close out your season.”

Albany Academy took the Section II small school title with 365.5 points, followed by Queensbury (322); Amsterdam (261.5), Glens Falls (256), Gloversville (254), Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake (217), Canajoharie-Fort Plain (160), Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk (94), Taconic Hills (90), Hudson Falls (46), Christian Brothers Academy (37), La Salle (37), Galway (35) and New Lebanon (13).

TH results: 200 Medley Relay, 9th, 1:58.55, Brian Ostrander, Cody Campeta, Travis Blank, Steven Essig; 200 Free, 3rd, 1:50.45, Travis Blank; 200 Free Relay, 9th, 1:49.65, Steven Essig, Brian Ostrander, Justin Muller, Cody Campeta; 100 Back, 3rd, 55.20, Travis Blank; 400 Free Relay, 8th, 3:55.04, Brian Ostrander, Cody Campeta, Justin Muller, Travis Blank.
