Laker swimmers down West Linn
Lake Oswego handled West Linn swim teams last week, with girls prevailing 93-77 and the boys rolling 124-44, setting up an exciting Civil War meet to close out the regular season.
The Laker girls endured a good battle from the Lions. After dropping the medley relay, the Lakers quickly made up points with a 1-2-3- finish in the 200 freestyle. Lauren Wagner won in 2:06.85 seconds, followed by Madeline McMurray and Mikayla Mathison.
In the individual medley, Abby Lyons and Emi Ampo took second and third.
The Lakers scored another win in the 100 butterfly with McMurray winning in 1:07.63.
Yifan Mao and Mathison took second and third in a competitive 100 freestyle and Wagner scored another victory for the Lakers in the 500 freestyle, cruising to victory in 5:45.98.
The Lakers won a tight 200 freestyle relay as well, led by strong swims from Madison Goodall, Ampo, Mathison and ZiYe Oldham.
In the 100 breaststroke, Lyons and Jeske Paanakker finished second and third as did Lake Oswego's top two 400 freestyle relay teams to round out the scoring for the Lakers, whose large team was too much for West Linn to handle.
That was the case in the boys meet as well.
Lake Oswego's medley relay team of Austin Weng, Logan Kojiro, Edward Kang and Lucas Rodgers won by nearly 10 seconds. In the individual medley, Kang won handily in 2:02.14 and teammate Daniel Kwon took second.
Lake Oswego took 1-2-3 in the 50 freestyle with Weng winning in 24.27, followed by Rodgers and Jordan Leis.
It was a 1-2 showing in the 100 freestyle as well. Ryan Sklar won in 53.62, followed by Ryan Washburne.
Marco Wolmarans was edged out in the 500 freestyle by half a second and took second, followed by Andrew Goodall in third.
Lake Oswego went 1-2 in both freestyle relays to rack up more points and Kang cruised to his second win of the day, dominating the backstroke in 56.98 seconds, his best time of the year. Weng and Washburne took second and third in that event.
The Lakers would also sweep the breaststroke. Kojiro won in 1:05.86 while Rodgers and Leis took second and third.
The Lakers will square off with the Pacers tonight (Thursday) at 6 p.m. at the district pool.Add a comment
