Published April 10, 2019

WAKEFIELD — When the Cape Ann League’s swim coaches met to decide All-Stars their was no doubt they needed to include plenty of Warriors once again.

The boys from Wakefield Memorial High School helped the Lynnfield-Wakefield co-op swim team make history as they went undefeated in the CAL, broke seven of 11 team records and had the highest finish as a team in both sectionals and states.

The four All-Stars from the team were all from Wakefield: Chris Anastasiades, Antonio Anastasiades, Alex Kent and Johnny Stumpf.

It is the second consecutive season that these four have been named All-Stars.

All four swam plenty of relays together throughout the season. Together they set new CAL records in the 200 medley and the 200 freestyle relays.

THE WARRIORS were represented well all year on the CAL champion Lynnfield-Wakefield co-op boys’ swim team. Four swimmers from Wakefield were named All-Stars for the second consecutive year: Chris Anastasiades, Antonio Anastasiades, Johnny Stumpf and Alex Kent.

A senior captain, Chris Anastasiades was voted Swimmer of the Year in the CAL this year.

Antonio Anastasiades was named an All-Scholastic in both the Boston Globe and Boston Herald. The junior won the 100 breaststroke (57.69) at Div. 1 States and the North sectional 200 IM. Antonio holds the school record in the 100 breast, 100 back and 200 IM along with all three relays.
