Hello! Let's say I comment a contest or competition. Then, someone asks me who took what place, and I reply, "X was first, and Y was second."

Is it grammatical to reword the answer as follows, "X was first, and (the) second was him (pointing my finger at him)." Should I put "the" before "second"?

I know that "X was first, and he was second" sounds better, but I'd like to know if my rewording is correct.
