Girls’ Swimming

Norwich 95, Whitney Point 74

NORWICH – Senior Savanna Keator crept up closer to the 200-yard freestyle record, and Norwich eased past Whitney Point for its second meet win of the season Tuesday.

Keator fell just eight hundreths of a second short off the school mark winning the 200 in 2:03.24. She also won the 100-yard freestyle, and teammates Makenzie Williams, Haley Chwazik-Gee, and Lauren Fitch had victories. “The girls swam really well, and we put them into different events to see their time,” said Norwich coach Amanda Downey. “We’ve been pushing Savanna really hard in the 200, and she wants that record really bad.”

Williams captured the 200 individual medley, Fitch the one-meter diving competition, and Gee grabbed a win in the 100 breaststroke. Norwich (2-1) is at Sus Valley Friday.

Greene 89, A/B-G/H/S/O 51

GREENE – Three Greene swimmers picked up their first varsity wins, and the Trojans evened their season record at 2-2 with a win over MAC foe Afton/B-G/Oxford/Harpursville.

Alison Norton and Rachel Paukett participated on winning relays for the first time, and Seana Farrow captured the 500-yard freestyle. “Each one of athletes puts in the same amount of yardage, and they should have the opportunity to swim in the pressure events,” said Greene coach Mike Platta. “This gives them a chance to prove themselves.”

Greene’s staples at the top, Helen Zaengle, Emily Dunckle, Katie Crowe, Leah Kazalski, and Katie Crowe also had wins.

Greene (2-1, 2-2) is at improved Sherburne-Earlville Tuesday.
