Despite juggled lineup, Norwich cruises past SV

Girls’ Swimming

Norwich 97, Susquehanna Valley 83

NORWICH – Few of Norwich’s swimmers were entered in their best events, but that mattered little Friday night against visiting Susquehanna Valley.

Five Tornado swimmers beat previous-best times, said head coach Kevin Diefenbacher, and the Sabers had just two wins, one of those coming in diving where the host club did not have an entry.

“The main thing in a meet like this is to find out how far our depth goes,” Diefenbacher said. “We move swimmers around to off events, and then we can find out if we can use them there if necessary.”

Marybeth Ward, Erin Gawronski, and Ravyn Benedict won two individual events apiece. Danika Tworkowsky and Alexis Laundry also captured an individual event.

Norwich (4-1) remains at home for its next meet as it hosts Chenango Forks Wednesday.

Chenango Forks 90, Greene 89

CHENANGO FORKS – Chenango Forks captured the final two events including the 400 free relay to end the meet earning a one-point win over the visiting Trojans Friday night.
