LIZTON — Both Sagamore Conference swimming and diving teams knew what to expect after seeing each other last Saturday.
The results were Lebanon beating Tri-West in both the boys’ and girls’ events. The Tigers won the boys’ 101-83 and the girls’, 128-55.
For the Bruins, the results were satisfactory considering its fifth and seventh places at conference compared to the first and third of Lebanon.
“Overall, we were pretty pleased,” Tri-West coach Jeff Sankey said. “We’ve got a lot of girls that are sick right now, we’ve got a lot of girls who are hurt right now.
“Numbers-wise, we are hoping to have everybody healthy by the time sectionals roll around. Lebanon is a huge team, size-wise for us to compete with in both boys and girls.”
Coming off a great performance at conference, Lebanon continued it’s high performance.
“We placed pretty well,” Lebanon coach Michael Dollens said. “We had a chance to change our events from conference because they don’t like to swim the same events all the time, it gets stale. So we changed up our lineup a little bit and some of the kids responded really well.”
With the two teams having just met at conference, the squads knew what they were going up against.
“There not a lot of secrets, you know who they have and we knew they had really good diving so we knew what was going to happen,” Dollens said. “Most of these dual meets you know who the winner is going to be.”
Bruins sophomore Madison Jones repeated her wins at conference by taking home individual victories in the 200 free and 100 fly.
“Those are sort of her two events right now,” Sankey said.
Tri-West senior Sydney McCalley won the 100 breaststroke and was one second off of her school record time.
