Pacer swim teams win first league meet

Lakeridge cruises to a pair of easy wins over Clackamas


The Lakeridge swim teams steamrolled Clackamas in their first dual meet last week. The Pacer boys and girls each won handily with the girls tallying a 111-59 win and the boys winning 99-70.

In the girls competition, Lakeridge took first and second in the medley relay with the No. 2 team edging out Clackamas' top squad by less than half a second.

Lakeridge then swept the 200 freestyle with Brenda Cha winning handily followed by Cristal McAninch and Lisa Douglas.

Cha was then quickly back in the pool for the individual medley, which she won easily in a time of 2:20.56.

Rowan Hauber tallied a dominating win in the 50 freestyle, touching the wall in 26.41 seconds, more than four seconds in front of her closest competition.

McAninch and Madison Canelis finished 1-2 in the 100 freestyle with McAninch winning in 1:01 flat.

It was another 1-2 finish for the Pacers in the 500 freestyle. Sonya Ahmadyar won in 5:31.75 seconds and Hauber took second.

The Pacers would also claim the top two spots in the 200 freestyle relay, showcasing the team's terrific depth.

Ahmadyar would win her second event of the day in the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:11.63 and Lakeridge's team of Noelle Foden-Vencil, McAninch, Douglas and Canelis would wrap up the meet with a victory in the 400 freestyle relay.

For the boys, the Pacers were edged out in the opening medley relay and Clackamas tallied wins in both the 200 freestyle and the individual medley. However, Lakeridge picked up key points with second and third place finishes in those events.

The Pacers picked up their first win in the 50 freestyle, led by Joey McCommish in 24.83 seconds, edging teammate Jeremy Ackerman.

Sam Swaim then picked up an impressive win in the 100 butterfly in a time of 1:01.41 in a tight finish between the top three competitors.

In the 100 freestyle, Zach Wyman tallied a victory for Lakeridge in 55.88 seconds while McCommish took second.

Liam O'Shea and Max Swaim went 1-2 in the 500 freestyle with O'Shea winning in 5:03.96 seconds.
