Constantino impresses again for Jayhawks

Kaylee Constantino continued her impressive season for the Jamestown Community College swimming & diving team Saturday at the Physical Education Complex.

The freshman from Frewsburg set a new Jayhawks’ record in the 200-yard breaststroke as the women’s team finished first out of four squads at the December Invitational.

Constantino finished in 2:50.25 to break Emily Holt’s nine-year record by about a half-second.

“I knew when I got her to come that I had high expectations for her. I knew she’d be a crucial part of the team,” Jamestown CC head coach Todd Conklin said Sunday evening. “She didn’t swim her senior year at Frewsburg with a torn ACL. We weren’t exactly sure where she’d be, but now that she’s back in the pool and training, we’re starting to see some nice stuff from her.”

Jamestown Community College won the women’s competition with 368 points followed by second-place Genesee CC (299), third-place Monroe CC (145) and fourth-place Herkimer County CC (30).

Constantino also won the 50-yard freestyle (27.06) and 50-yard breaststroke (34.94) while also being a part of the winning 200-yard medley relay team (2:05.70).

Shannon Stein won the 50-yard butterfly (31.49) and 200-yard breaststroke (2:41.45); Tia Moppert claimed the 400-yard individual medley (5:34.50) and 100-yard freestyle (1:00.48); and Jenna Fiebiger captured the 200-yard butterfly (3:20.20) and 50-yard backstroke (36.25) for Jamestown CC.

“Jenna had another superior meet,” Conklin said of the freshman from South Africa. “Another person who, when she came over, she hadn’t even swam a 100 butterfly, now she’s in the 200 fly and goes above and beyond.”

Genesee CC won the men’s competition with 277 points followed by second-place Monroe CC (269), third-place Jamestown CC (149) and fourth-place Herkimer County CC (79).

Tshepiso Ntuli was the top finisher for the Jamestown CC men with second-place finishes in the 50-yard butterfly and 100-yard individual medley.

“He’s a soccer player who also wanted to swim. He’s really starting to excel now that we’ve gotten him in the pool,” Conklin said of Ntuli. “He’s going to be a crucial part of that men’s team moving toward the regional meet and nationals.”

Cole Carlson was second in the 200-yard freestyle.

Jamestown CC’s final meet of the fall semester is Saturday at the University of Pitt-Bradford. The Jayhawks are then off until Jan. 15 when they host their January Invitational.
