Swimming - 2004

JON PESANSKY graduated from Corning West and swam for the Corning District Hawks for only two seasons, but they were outstanding seasons. Jon originally tried out for the swim team as therapy for his knees between track and cross-country seasons. He turned into an All-STC performer in a hurry. As a junior he was all league in the 200 freestyle, 500 freestyle and 400 freestyle relay team. As a senior, Jon was all-league in the 200, 500, 400 relay and 200 relay, all in freestyle. Along the way he set pool records at Canisteo, Horseheads, Bath, EFA, Elmira Southside and at Corning East. His performances qualified him for the state meet as a junior and senior. He then attended Hartwick College and made four strong appearances in the UNYSCSA Conference Championship meet.
