McKinley senior Tommy Seay won two events and City Honors took team honors Monday at the All-High Swimming Championships at Erie Community College's Burt Flickinger Center.

Seay won the 50 freestyle in an All-High record 21.76. The previous record of 22.62 was held by Dharta Harris of Bennett in 1983. Seay's time is also the fastest in Western New York.

Seay said the key to his win in the 50 was only taking one breath and nailing the turn. He also won the 100 free in 47.26, just bit slower than his WNY-leading 47.08. With his times in the 50 and 100, Seay automatically qualified for state meet March 2-3 at the Flickinger.

Seay is undefeated over the last four years against City competition. He holds Buffalo Public School records in eight individual events: 50 free, 200IM, 200 free, 100 fly, 100 free and 100 back, 160 yard IM, 60-yard free.

Three swimmers won their events for the second year in a row: Nate Sowiski of City Honors in the 200 free, Katie Henry of City Honors in the 50 butterfly and Maria Ryer of Hutch-Tech in the 50 free.

City Honors' 252 points edged runner-up Hutch-Tech's 232. The schools also finished 1-2 during the regular co-ed season.
