For the first time since 2004, the Mustangs bucked the Bison.
Rolling Meadows’ girls swimming team pulled out a 98-87 victory over visiting Buffalo Grove on Thursday, the first time in eight years that’s happened.
Buffalo Grove had multiple winners in Veronika Jedryka (200 free, 100 free) and Margaret Lotzer (200 IM, 100 fly), but Rolling Meadows showed an edge in depth.
Such as in the 100 butterfly, where Bailey Rowley and Meaghan O’Brien finished 2-3 behind Lotzer in season-best clockings of 1:05.
Jessica Dykstra won the 50 free (26.13) and Rolling Meadows took top honors in the medley and 400 free relays in addition to getting a 1-2-3 sweep in diving.
Palatine d. Conant: Junior Amy Zahn and freshman Lily Zahn finished 1-2 in the 100-meter butterfly and also had legs on the winning freestyle relays as the host Pirates won a competitive MSL West dual 107-79.
Amy Zahn also took top honors in the 200 free and 100 fly, while Lily Zahn won the 100 free. The Pirates also had individual winners in Kristin Anderson (50 free), Megan Bourn (diving), Tess O’Brien (100 back) and Mathilde Mogensen (100 breaststroke). Junior Laura Mayer was second in the 200 IM and 400 freestyle behind Conant sophomore Allison Cicero.
Maine West d. Maine East: Rachel Lunkes won the 50-yard freestyle and the 100 free, Bailey Guenther won the 200 IM and the 500 free and host Maine West took top honors in the first two relays in a 105-73 victory over Maine East.
Barrington d. Schaumburg: The Fillies produced another dominant effort in a victory over the host Saxons. Barrington swept the relays and had individual winners in Emma Barnett (200 IM, 100 back), Emma Toth (200 free), Andrea Vega (50 free), Tiffany Soto (diving), Gabby Claborn (100 fly), Lisa Danhauer (100 free), Kael Ragnini (400 free) and Olivia Hoffman (100 breast).
Prospect d. Wheeling: Wheeling sophomore Theresa Godlewski won a tough back-to-back with victories in the 100 fly and the 100 free, but the Knights earned a 113-73 victory.
Macey Berkley (200 free, 100 breast) and Niki Neumann (200 IM, 500 free) were double individual winners for the Knights, and sophomore Dana Liva scored 247.40 to win diving.Copyright © 2013 Paddock Publications, Inc. All rights reserved.
