The DHS boys’ swim team remains undefeated after trouncing Hanover/Rockland last Tuesday, 84-61.  The Dragons won all but two events, improving their record to 7-0 and inching closer to their 11th Patriot League title in 12 years. 
Mike Connolly continues to dominate the 200 and 500-yard freestyle events, finishing well ahead of his competition in both.  Matt Griffin (2nd) and Mason Crane (5th) followed in the 200, while Keelan Murphy (2nd) and Kevin Coakley (3rd) completed the sweep in the 500.
Ian Wilson coasted to a season-low, State-qualifying time of 59.78 in the 100-yard backstroke, followed by Arthur Su (2nd) and Josh Ng (3rd).  The three, joined by Ben Zelvis, started the meet off by winning the 200-yard medley relay.


Zelvis would later return to the pool to take first in the 50-yard freestyle with a blistering time of 25.19.  Behind him were Drew Lawerence (5th) and Mike Tougas (6th).  Tougas would also take first place in the diving competition, edging out teammate Ryan Scanlan. 
The co-captain Su brothers continue their winning ways, as well. Arthur (1:01.5) took first in the 100-yard butterfly, while Barry (1:11.12) grabbed the breaststroke honors. They later teamed up with Wilson and Connolly to capture first in 400-yard freestyle relay. The 200 freestyle relay team of Barry Su, Steven Kravitz, Crane and Ng also took first, continuing the sweep. 
The Dragons will be back at the Percy Walker Pool this week, as they take on Norwell and Barnstable. Then it’s on to Middleboro for the Patriot League championships on Saturday.
