Both the girls’ and boys’ Vikings Swim Teams won a dual meet at Bellevue East on January 9. The girls outpointed the Chieftains 99-62. Big drops in time were produced by Zoe Gregorio, Gabby Push, Sam Hausman, and Julia Haas in the 100 Freestyle. Julia also posted a big 2.84 second improvement in her 50 Freestyle. Ann Fox, Teresa Gibbons, and Isabel Kolb went 1-2-3 to sweep the 200 Freestyle.
The Vikings boys’ 94-81 victory was aided by a mix of veterans and first-year swimmers dropping time. Jack Hinsley improved his 200 Freestyle by 6.23 seconds, an event won by Lee Yoder with a season-best time. Liam Murray and Nate Schlader posted personal-best times in the 100 Freestyle.
The Vikings compete next this weekend at the Skutt Catholic SkyHawk Invitational at Ralston High School on Saturday morning, January 13. Six Viking seniors will be recognized at the last home dual meet of the season at McMillan Middle School next Tuesday at 5:00 p.m., when the Vikings host Omaha Northwest.
