Pacer swimmers battle Sunset

Sunset features some of the states top competitors


The Lakeridge swim teams battled a very strong Sunset squad last week, getting a glimpse of some very stiff competition early in the season.

The Pacer girls more than held their own against the Apollos. Lakeridge got off to a strong start, winning the 200 medley relay handily.

Lakeridge picked up another victory in the 200 individual medley behind a strong swim from Rowan Hauber, who won in 2:14.21.

Brenda Cha also picked up an impressive win in the 100 butterfly, beating Sunset's top finisher by more than three seconds in 58.69.

In the 500 freestyle, Jordynn Canelis and Noelle Foden-Vencil took second and third, finishing less than two seconds apart from each other.

The Pacers also won the 200 freestyle relay in impressive fashion, taking it home in 1:46.19.

The Pacers' best showing came in the 100 backstroke where Lynette Daigo and Canelis finished first and second while Hauber picked up additional points with a fourth place showing.

Madeison Canelis and Sonya Ahmadyar then took second and third in the 100 breaststroke.

For the boys, Sunset proved to be extremely formidable, taking first and second in a handful of events.

Alex Schaffer took second in the 100 butterfly in 1:04.66 and Sam Swaim came away with a solid victory in the 500 freestyle, winning it in 5:42.08.

The Pacers' 200 freestyle relay team of Joey McCommish, Matt Berman, Matt White and Aaron Reynolds put up a strong fight, edging out Sunset's No. 2 team for second place.

Lakeridge will take on Oregon City tonight (Thursday) at the Oregon City pool.
