Lakeridge swim teams earn a split with Canby in dual meets
Lakeridge's swim teams got a stiff test from Canby in a league dual meet last week.
The Pacer boys came away with a 104-66 victory while the girls were edged out 86-84.
The girls meet came down to the final race with Canby's 2-3 finish in the 400 freestyle relay providing enough of a margin to win.
Lakeridge won the majority of the events but the Cougars' depth allowed them to rack up points.
Brenda Cha scored an easy victory for the Pacers in the 200 freestyle and Lakeridge picked up a 1-2 finish in the 200 individual medley with Noelle Foden-Vencil edging out teammate Katie King.
Cha scored her second victory of the night for Lakeridge in the 100 butterfly, winning by more than four seconds.
It was another 1-2 finish for Lakeridge in the 500 freestyle.
Foden-Vencil won the event in 5:30.24 while Madeline Hummel took second.
King picked up a victory with an impressive showing in the 100 breaststroke, beating out Canby's top participant in the event by more than 10 seconds.
However, Lakeridge trailed by four points heading into the final event.
The Pacers won the 400 freestyle but Canby's second and third place finish picked up enough points to fend Lakeridge off.
The Lakeridge boys team won all but one event against Canby. The team swept the relays and had a handful of 1-2 finishes.
Claudio Quintana scored a big win for Lakeridge in the 200 freestyle while Matt Berman cruised to a 10-second victory in the individual medley.
John Moon scored an impressive victory in the 50 freestyle and was then right back in the pool where he finished second in the 100 butterfly behind teammate Aaron Reynolds.
Quintana and Matt White went 1-2 in the 500 freestyle while Berman scored his second individual win of the evening in the 100 backstroke.
That was followed by White's victory in the 100 breaststroke.
Lakeridge would cap the evening by placing first and second in the 400 freestyle relay.
The Pacers will take on Oregon City today (Thursday).
