Pacer swim teams topple Tualatin
The girls team steals a win with a victory in the final relay
Lakeridge's swim teams racked up more victories last week with the girls team edging out a very strong Tualatin squad 88-82 to stay unbeaten on the year. The boys team cruised 113-57 as the squads gear up for the final meets of the season before districts and state.
The girls meet lived up to its billing and wasn't decided until the final race. Lakeridge got on the board first with a win in the medley relay.
Sonya Ahmadyar then won by more than five seconds in the 200 freestyle, coming in with a time of 1:59.75.
Brynne O'Shea then captured the individual medley in a time of 2:18.82.
After Tualatin picked up its first victory of the meet, Mara Newman scored a victory in the 100 butterfly in a time of 59.82 seconds.
Tualatin then went on a run, winning the next three races including a victory in the 200 freestyle relay.
Lakeridge answered with a 1-2 finish by Newman and O'Shea in the 100 backstroke with Newman winning in 59.23 seconds.
But, after Tualatin won the breaststroke, the meet was tied at 78-78 heading into the 400 freestyle relay.
It would also be one of the more exciting races of the night as the team of Newman, Ahmadyar, Dorothy Wang and Katie Manzione fended the Timberwolves off and won by just over a second in 3:45.95.
For the boys, there was far less drama. The Pacers took first and second in the medley relay and were off to the races.
Liam O'Shea and Max Swaim finished 1-2 in the 200 IM with O'Shea winning in 2:10.23. Zach Wyman then won the 50 freestyle in 23.84 seconds, followed by a victory from Matt McComish in the 100 butterfly in 58.66 seconds.
Wyman would then win again in the 100 freestyle, taking it in 53.92 and, after a win in the 200 freestyle relay, CJ Hansen won the 100 backstroke in just under a minute.
O'Shea scored his second victory of the evening in the 100 breaststroke in a time of 1:11.19 and Lakeridge capped the day with another 1-2 finish in the 400 freestyle relay.
