The Bay State's first family of swimming celebrated a championship weekend.

On Saturday, legendary Weston High mentor Pete Foley, in his 35th and final season as head coach, guided the Red Tide boys to their ninth straight Division 2 state title.

The following day his son Mike directed the Wayland High girls to their second straight Division 2 crown. (His father's Weston girls' squad finished third.)
