Southern Cayuga boys swimming captured the IAC league championship Saturday, Feb. 9 at Waverly. The Chiefs' Joey Angotti was named the meet's most outstanding swimmer. 

Southern Cayuga won six events and finished with 455.5 points to beat out Odessa-Montour, Lansing, Dryden, Waverly and Watkins Glen to become IAC champions Saturday.

Joey Angotti took first in the 50 freestyle (21.94) and the 100 freestyle (54.48), and JD Rejman won the 200 freestyle (2:00.78) and 500 freestyle (5:44.01).

The Chiefs also won a pair of relays. Jamison Murray, Angotti, Rejman and Owen Overhiser edged out Odessa-Montour to win the 200 medley relay in 1:52.39, while Jordan Stephenson, Chris Morris, Rejman and Angotti took first in the 200 freestyle relay in 1:37.47, besting second-place Watkins Glen by over 15 seconds.

Angotti was named the most valuable swimmer of the meet and his time in the 50 freestyle qualified him for the state championships next month in Long Island. Angotti, Rejman and Overhiser were all named IAC All-Stars.
