Marlins get split in recent swim meets

ROCKY McVAIGH/for the Van Wert independent

The Van Wert Marlins team sponsored by the YMCA of Van Wert County recently competed in a couple of swim meets.

On June 17, the Van Wert YMCA Marlins defeated the Kenton Swim Team by a score of 409-182. Then, on June 20, the Marlins traveled to Ada for a meet with Ada-Lost Creek Swim Club.  Van Wert dropped that meet 516-225 to bring the Marlins’ season record to 1-3.

Sam Easley (boys 13-14), Tyra McClain (Girls 8 & Under) and Emma Pollock (Girls 9-10), continued their winning ways by winning all of their individual events. Each has yet to lose an individual event this season. Also winning all of their individual events against Kenton were Eric Easley (3) and Dylan Neate (5).

Others with first place finishes were: Gracie Mull (1), Jamie Burenga (1), Daniel Miller (3); Katie McVaigh (2), Erin Miller (1), Risa Pollock (2), Becca Johnson (1), Hannah Stemen (3), Holly Hammond (1) and Evan Stant (2). All in all, it was a very impressive team performance with 42 of the 44 Van Wert swimmers scoring in at least one event.

At Ada, the main reason for the lopsided score was the fact that the Marlins weren’t able to field enough swimmers to compete in relays. The Marlins held their ground well in individual competition, but only swam two relays to Ada’s 20, which resulted in more than 200 giveaway points. Taking first place in all their individual events were Mull (5), Emma Pollock (5), Daniel Miller (4) and Neate (5).  Others finishing in first were: Luke Miller (3), McVaigh (2), Risa Pollock (1), Skylar Lehman (2) and Eric Easley (2).
