Lady Elks Win, Boys Take 4th at Waynesville Swimvitational

The Lady Elks put on a dominant showing at the Waynesville Swimvitational on Saturday, placing 1st out of 12 teams with an overal score of 108 points. Led by first place finishes in the 200 Medley Relay (Sara Gardner, Amy Barchek, Elizabeth Lewis, Kari Seymour) and the 50 Butterfly (Elizabeth Lewis), it was an overall strong showing in the water for the Elks. Sara Gardner (2nd Place 100 Backstroke, 3rd Place 100 Freestyle), Abby Gardner (2nd Place 50 Butterfly), Elizabeth Lewis (3rd Place 100 IM), Amy Barchek (2nd Place 100 Breastroke), and Shirley Jiang (3rd Place 100 Breaststroke) rounded out the group of Top 3 finishers for the girls at the meet. 

A smaller boys squad showed significant improvement since their first dual meet against Fairmont in late November. A 3rd place showing in the 200 Backstroke Relay (Robbie Cox, Alex Fleburg, Nolan Sablak, Will Huber) highlighted the boys meet, while Top 5 Finishes by Sean Dewalt (100 Freestyle, 100 Backstroke) and Kevin Fick (50 Breaststroke) helped a smaller boys squad place 4th out of 13 teams at the meet.
