St. Helens swim teams torpedo visiting Rex Putnam

Boys win every event, girls all but one in dual meet
by: John Brewington PRECOCIOUS FROSH—St. Helens’ Jonathan Prevish has added some firepower to the Lions’ swim team this season.

he St. Helens swim teams dominated visiting Rex Putnam on Thursday-the boys and girls winning 21 of 22 events.

The St. Helens boys would post a convincing 129-36 victory, while the girls picked up their first win, 117-49.

The boys won all 11 events and swept five, including a 1-2-3 in the 400 relay. They were first and second in two others.

Individually, just about everyone scored points in the meet. Jonathan Prevish and Andrew Collson may have had the best day overall-each swimming on two winning relay teams, and winning two individual events. Prevish, a freshman, won the 200 individual medley and the 100 butterfly. Collson added individual firsts in the 50 free and 100 free. Other individual firsts were recorded by Will Lawrence in the 200 free, Austin Sandford in the 100 backstroke, and Luke Haresnape in the 100 breaststroke.

The girls showed improvement in the meet with their win, but don't have as much depth as the boys. They, too, won all three relays, and had a one-two in the 400 free relay. They only lost one event, but had just one race with a one-two finish, and no sweeps. Brook Hopkins won the 200 individual medley and 100 back, while Emily Spears was first in the 50 free and the 100 free. Ashley Stewart took first in the 100 fly and Torin Edwards won the 500 free. Jackie Prevish took first in the 100 breast.

St. Helens will train over the holidays but does not have another meet until they travel to Parkrose on Jan. 5.
