Tribe girls tops at Astoria meet; boys second

Lady Indians win their second straight meet

For the second week since the season started, the Scappoose Lady Indians swim team won their second big meet and the Tribe boys finished second.

The Scappoose girls scored almost twice as many points as second-place Astoria in the all-Cowapa League five-team Nygaard Invitational in Astoria. The boys were in second, just a few points behind Astoria.

'There were many personal records from almost everyone,' Scappoose coach David Richmond said. 'Especially impressive were: Anna Ford, PR in 200 free and 50 free; Erin Heath in 100 fly and back; and Ryan Rafferty who battled a sore elbow to PR in the backstroke.  Mary Rotter also had a 10-second PR in her 100 free. Jeremy Powell won his first ever event in an invitational in the 100 breast. The list goes on and on.' 

Richmond noted, 'Stefany Alvarez (a freshman) stepped up big in helping the team score. She won the IM and set a lifetime best in the 100 free by about five seconds.'

Scappoose has the Newport Invitational on Dec. 16, and then takes off from competition for the holidays. They are at the Cheese Relays in Tillamook on Jan. 6.
