Pacer swim teams roll past Grant

The Lakeridge boys edge the Generals despite missing key contributors


Lakeridge's swim teams swept Grant last week in a pair of competitive dual meets. The boys, despite missing some top performers, tallied a 91-79 victory while the girls continued their dominance of the TRL with a 114-56 win.

In the boys meet, Lakeridge fell behind early but stayed close with its depth. Max Swaim, Alex Schaffer and Sam Swaim finished 2-3-4 in the 200 individual medley to pick up key points before the Pacers picked up their first win of the day.

In the 50 freestyle, Zach Wyman cruised to a two-second victory, winning in 24.88 seconds.

After a 2-3-4 finish in the 100 butterfly by Jeremy Ackerman, Sam Swaim and Jackson Waster, Wyman won again, this time in the 100 freestyle in a time of 56.07 seconds.

The meet turned in the 200 freestyle where Lakeridge finished first and seocnd. The team of Ackerman, Wyman and both Swaim brothers won in 1:41.80 while Joshua Lee, Nick Neville, Matthew Lautze and Owen Hart scored a crucial second-place showing.

Schaffer and CJ Hansen went 2-3 in the backstroke while Max Swaim and Hart did the same in the breaststroke. That all but sealed the win for the Pacers who would wrap up the evening by going 2-3 in the 400 freestyle relay.

For the girls, the Pacers opened the meet by taking first and second in the medley relay, followed quickly by a 1-2 showing from Rowan Hauber and Jordynn Canelis in the 200 freestyle. Hauber won the event in 2:04.62.

In the individual medley it was Keaton Blovad winning, followed by Dorothy Wang in second. Cristal McAninch and Canelis then went 1-2 in the 50 freestyle with McAninch winning by six hundredths of a second.

Hauber, Noelle Foden-Vencil and Wang went 1-2-3 respectively in the butterfly, followed by Brenda Cha and Madison Canelis taking first and second in the 100 freestyle.

Blovad scored her second win of the meet in the 500 freestyle, winning in 5:21.80 seconds.

After another 1-2 finish in the 200 freestyle relay, Sonya Ahmadyar took home the 100 backstroke in 1:05.60 and, in the final individual race of the day, Cha cruised to a three-second victory in the breaststroke.
