Cascade, Tri-West spilt dual meet

CLAYTON —  With sectionals just around the corner, the Cascade and Tri-West boys’ and girls’ swimming and diving teams spilt the dual meet Thursday night.

The Tri-West boys won 93-71 and the Cascade girls won 117-63.

These teams will compete against each other again at sectionals.

“It was a nice little sectional preview and that’s a tough sectional to begin with,” Tri-West coach Jeff Sankey said. “When you look ahead to that sectional meet at what schools are comparable to us in size, certainly Cascade fits into that category. To come in here and for the boys to beat them, it gives you a good feeling about their reasonable prospects at sectionals.”

Cascade coach Paul Williams said he was pleased with his nine boys’ times.

“They just battle every day,” Williams said. “I’m tickled to pieces the way they approach a swim meet. We dropped the meet but their times were good and we’re going to be good at sectionals when we get into the individual and relay events.”

It was the final meet for the girls before sectionals begin and the Cadets put on a solid performance.

“Really proud of the girls,” Williams said. “They’re gearing down for the sectionals but I was pretty pleased with the way they swam. It was senior night, so everyone was pretty pumped up and emotional. Overall, we had some great swims and some great times.”

Illness and injury continue to pile up for the Bruin girls, but Sankey said he was happy with their effort.

“It’s a point here, it’s a point there, where if you pick them up the meet swings a different way,” he said. “We’ve got a week now to sort of lick our wounds and hopefully have everybody going for next Thursday.”
