Camden Holmes, Ellsworth junior: Holmes set a meet record in the Class B 50 free (21.16). He added a second straight 100 free title and anchored two winning free relays, including a meet record of 1:29.54 in the 200. The Eagles finished second at the meet.
Richie Matthews, Ellsworth senior: Matthews won all four of his events at the Class B state meet. He was the champ in the 100 butterfly (52.39, fastest in the state this season) and 100 breaststroke (59.37). He swam the third legs of the 200 and 400 free relays.
Liam Sullivan, Mt. Desert Island junior: Sullivan set meet records of 51.99 in the 100 backstroke and 1:53.66 in the 200 individual medley to help MDI win the Class B title. He also swam on the winning 200 medley and runner-up 400 free relays and was named Performer of the Meet.
Tony DeMuro, Mt. Desert Island: The Trojans lost by 29 points to defending state champ Ellsworth in a December dual meet, and again by a point in their conference meet. But at the state meet, MDI surged past the Eagles to win the Class B title, 343-326.5. DeMuro credits assistant Dave Blaney for guiding the team when DeMuro was absent during the season for personal reasons.
