LYNNFIELD — The swim team dropped three meets last week, bringing the Pioneers’ overall record this season to 0-5.
The Pioneers fell 98-80 to Manchester-Essex on Jan. 7.
Freshman diver Sabrina Bunar finished first in the one meter diving competition, which enabled her to qualify for states. Erika Glowik finished second during the diving competition.
“Sabrina is a rare talent,” said Boyd. “She’s going to accomplish some great things in the next few years. Then we have Erika Glowik, who might be the second best diver in the league behind Sabrina. Our dive coach, Daniele Menard, has done an amazing job with those girls.”
The 200 yard freestyle team featuring Zack Glowik, Eric Carey, Joseph LaRussa and Shreyas Kudrimoti finished first (1:55.91).
Lindsay Barrett finished second in the 200 freestyle (2:14.40) and the 100 meter butterfly (1:21.69). Zach Glowik finished second in the 50 freestyle (25.78) and the 100 backstroke (1:09.44). LaRussa finished second in the 100 freestyle (1:09.09). Kudrimoti finished second in the 200 individual medley (2:46.35).
The 200 yard medley relay team consisting of Hayley O’Brien, Kudrimoti, Zach Glowik and Carey finished second (2:13.78). The 400 freestyle relay team featuring LaRussa, Chris O’Neil, Erica Hoey and Carey finished third (5:00.56).
Falls to Ipswich
The Pioneers fell 115-71 to Ipswich on Jan. 12.
Bunar finished first in the one meter diving competition (188.62). Lindsey Barrett finished second in the 200 individual medley (2:33.06) and the 100 yard breaststroke (1:20.23). Zack Glowik finished second in the 50 freestyle (24:84) and was third in the 100 freestyle (58 seconds). Kudrimoti finished second in the 500 freestyle (6:25.56) and 200 freestyle (2:27.94).

Loss to Masco
The Pioneers concluded last week falling 137-48 to Masconomet on Jan. 18.
“It’s going to be tough for us to beat anyone with only 19 kids,” said Boyd. “We’ve made a point to pride ourselves on hard work and sportsmanship this year. The kids all care about each other and work their hardest every day. As a coach, you can’t ask for more than that. We’ll make it back to the top eventually. This year the numbers are just stacked against us.”
Lynnfield will travel to Triton on Wednesday, Jan. 28, beginning at 6 p.m.
