The team has won the meet nine out of the past 11 seasons. This year's title, however, didn't come easily. The lead changed hands between Greenwich and New Canaan for the first half of the meet, with the Rams leading after three races and then Greenwich gaining a slim margin for the next three. The Rams then went up 343-340 through seven events, but Greenwich's performance in the 500 freestyle gave the Cardinals a 41-point lead, 405.5-364, with Erin Calderoni finishing third (5:04.24) and Jesse Evans tying for fourth with Cheshire's Alexandra Koukos (5:06.04).
Greenwich then placed first in the 200 freestyle relay with a time of 1:37.86, just fractions of a second ahead of New Canaan, which touched the wall at 1:37.88.
That virtually put an end to the Rams' shot at winning the meet. Sisters Kim and Sam Hill swam the first two legs for the Cardinals, and Evans and Calderoni swam the second two.
Greenwich maintained their lead over the Rams 515 - 494 after the 100-yard breast stroke and took the 400-yard freestyle relay (3:32.16) to win the day.
