SYRACUSE – Wawasee couldn’t keep pace with Concord in a swim double for the Minutemen Tuesday at the Wawasee Natatorium. Concord took the boys dual 107-79 and the girls dual 125-61 in the Northern Lakes Conference matchup.
Wawasee, despite swimming Concord to 28 points on the boys side, won no events. But some head’s up races in the 200 and 500 with Jared Krugman, the 50 with Daegan Kingrey and diving with Brady Klaassen showed Wawasee could keep pace. Krugman was just a second off Kallaghan Findley’s pace in the 200, Kingrey was a stroke back of Will Harris in the 50, and Krugman and Matt Bond were level in the 500, Bond touching at 4:54.23 with Krugman just four-hundredths off on the touch.
Aaron Leas topped Klaassen in diving with 245.60 points, a 10-point cushion on the Wawasee senior.
On the girls side, Wawasee had Rileigh Atwood win both the 100 free (59.23) and the breaststroke (1:10.82), Atwood chased by Ali Haberman in the 100. Haberman would win the 50 free at 28.09 and Lily Tyler claimed the backstroke at 1:08.37. Ella Park was also involved in a tight race in the 500, landing third by less than a second behind Olivia Trout, who won at 5:36.17, Brooklyn Messenger at 5:36.38 and Park at 5:36.83.
Wawasee will host its Wawasee Invite this Saturday.
