Dual champs back it up at district swimming
MHC district champions
|Boys â€” Clackamas|
|Girls â€” Oregon City|
There were no surprises during the team trophy presentation at Saturday's Mount Hood Conference district swim meet.
The Clackamas boys backed up their perfect run through the dual season by coming in more than 100 points ahead of runner-up Central Catholic in the district tally. The Cavaliers reached their 372-point total by putting multiple swimmers into the championship finals in all but two individual races. That included three swimmers in each the 500-yard freestyle and the backstroke.
David Douglas senior Izaya Owotor swept the freestyle sprints, highlighted when he reached the wall 0.11 hundredths ahead of Central Catholic's Jack Ivory in the 50 free.
Reynolds junior Jordan Convery was also a multi-event winner in the 200 medley and 500 free, while Oregon City's Brian Frazier won the 200 free and breaststroke to finish atop the power points tally on the boys side.
Regular-season champion Oregon City won the girls team title by 40 points over runner-up Clackamas, powered by two wins in the day's first three events. Centennial junior Jamie Stone swept the freestyle sprints and finished as the high scorer on the girls side.
