Swimmers set 22 personal bests in home meet

Behind first-place finishes from Jayce Calhoon, Kieran Schaefer and Michael Simmonds, the Sweet Home boys defeated Central and Marist Friday in a home swimming meet.

“We had a real good meet to start the rest of the season with and came out of it with 22 PR’s,” Coach Doug Peargin said.

The boys scored 130 points, with Central second with 121 and Marist third with 61.

The girls got an individual first-place finish from Nichole Simmonds in the 500 freestyle and finished second behind defending state champion Marist. Marist had 122 points, Sweet Home 102 and Central 68. Simmonds also swam the lead-off leg for the girls winning team in the 400 freestyle relay.

“We knew the Marist girls would be really tough as they are defending state champs, but to come within 20 points of them meant that we swam real well,” Peargin said.

Sami Webb’s 2:!1.5 in the girls 200 freestyle ties her for the 10th fastest time in school history, he said.

Peargin said Central is “probably the most improved in our district” and he predicted the Panthers will be one of the top teams in the district meet.

Counting relays, Calhoon took individual first-places in the 200 freestyle and the 100 backstroke, plus contributing to wins in the 200 medley and 400 freestyle relays, while Schaefer added wins in the 50 freestyle, the 100 butterfly and anchored the 400 freestyle relay. Michael Simmonds won the 200 intermediate medley and swam on the winning 200 medley and 400 freestyle relays.

Peargin said newcomers to the team are starting to make noticeable contributions.

“We’ve always had talent that comes through for us from the veteran swimmers but now we’re also having some pretty competitive swims from the new people on the team,” he said.
