Lake Oswego swim teams each knock off West Linn

by: VERN UYETAKE Sarah Kaunitz scored two individual victories against West Linn, winning the 200 individual medley and the 100 freestyle.

Lake Oswego's swim teams picked up a pair of impressive victories when they took on West Linn in a dual meet last week.

The Laker teams each won handily with the girls topping the Lions 119-51 and the boys winning 98-72.

Lake Oswego's depth and individual talent was on full display all evening.

The girls got off to a strong start, winning the 200 medley relay. Then, in the first individual race of the night, Hannah Cutts and Rachel Braun finished 1-2 in the 200 freestyle with Braun barely touching out West Linn's Katie Cooper at the wall.

Lake Oswego scored another 1-2 finish in the 200 individual medley with Sarah Kaunitz winning the event and Madison Luick taking second.

It was a similar showing in the 100 butterfly. Abby Lyons won the event impressively with Luick close behind in second.

Kaunitz picked up her second individual win of the meet in the 100 freestyle, winning by nearly two seconds.

Cutts followed suit with her second win, taking the 500 freestyle by more than 25 seconds in a stellar time of 5:24.

Amy Chen and Irene Lee took first and second respectively in the 100 backstroke and the Laker girls had perhaps their most impressive showing of the night in the 100 breaststroke.

Lake Oswego went 1-2-3 in the event led by Catherine Yee. Lyons took second and Chase Jutzi finished third.

The Lake Oswego girls also swept all three relays in a very impressive showing after the break.

The West Linn boys gave Lake Oswego a bit of a challenge but the Lakers' depth was too tough for the Lions to overcome.

The 200 medley relay team of Wyatt Hayden, Luke Marshall, Daniel Chen and David Ainsworth edged out the Lions' top team.

Marshall and Austin Weng then scored a 1-2 finish for the Lakers in the 200 IM.

West Linn won a handful of events in the meet but Lake Oswego racked up points to bolster its lead.

In the 100 freestyle, Chen got payback for a close loss to the Lions' Brandon Brooksby in the 50 freestyle and beat Brooksby by two and a half seconds, finishing in 49.99.

Like the girls team, Lake Oswego swept all three relays.

Marshall scored a second individual win when he easily won the 100 breaststroke.

Lake Oswego takes on Jesuit tonight (Thursday).
