Swim teams win three-way meet against Philomath, JC

Down one of its leading swimmers, the Sweet Home boys swim team still pulled off a pair of victories over Philomath and Junction City Friday at home.

Sophomore Jayce Calhoon had his appendix removed the day before the meet, which left the Huskies shorthanded.

“Hopefully he will be back to play a major role at the district meet,” said Coach Doug Peargin. “I told the team before the meet (that) we’ve been sick an we’ve been hurt, but this is where team depth and endurance come into play. If everyone can place in at least one event, we can still win. That’s why they call us a team.”

It worked for the Huskies, who still won every event except the two Calhoon was scheduled to swim, the 100 freestyle and 100 breaststroke. Sweet Home scored 71 points to 60 for Philomath and 17 for Junction City.

The girls also won, with six first-place finishes, to score 71 points as well. Philomath had 64 and Junction City scored 32.

Brinden Sanders, Kieran Schaefer and Sara Rosa each won two individual events, while Jonathan Lemar, Michael Simmonds, Sami Webb and Faith Helfrich won individual events.

Sweet Home had 13 personal bests on the day, Peargin said.

The Huskies have two meets left before Districts on Feb. 8-9 at South Albany Aquatic Center. Sweet Home will swim Saturday at the Albany Invitational.

“This has been a fun season with a bunch of great kid,” he said. “We’re really looking forward to the district championships.”
