Sarah Helton, Ryanne Vance and Ally Robertson each won two individual events for North, with Helton taking the 200 Individual Medley and 100 Breastroke, while Vance won the 50 Freestyle and 100 butterfly and Robertson coming up triumphant in the 100 Freestyle and 100 Backstroke. The trio then teamed with Olivia Seefeldt to win the 200 Medley Relay.

Teammate Alexa Acuna finished up the wins for North as she swam her way to the 200 Freestyle crown.

 For Memorial, Kelsey Kersgieter took second in the 200 Individual Medley and  Santa Fe’s Riley Powelson finished as the top scorer for the Lady Wolves as she picked up a silver medal in the 100 Butterfly.

In boys action, No. 3 Edmond North topped Jenks, while the fourth-ranked Trojans did muster a victories over fifth-rated Memorial and unranked Santa Fe. Garrett Duncan and Joe Short each won two events for the Huskies as Duncan took the 200 Individual Medley and 100 Breastroke while Short won the 100 Butterfly and 100 Backstroke. They were also members of the winning 200 Medley Relay along with Zack Padgett and Matt Baier, and the 200 Free Relay along with Alan Tran and Padgett. Tran was a double-event champion as well as he took the 200 Freestyle and the 500 Freestyle.

Memorial’s Francisco Ochoa won the 100 Freestyle and then got with fellow Bulldog Jonathan Ye, Tory Scott, and Bennett Cook to win the 400 Free Relay.

The top placer for Santa Fe was Eric Williams, who finished third in the 50 Freestyle.

“We really needed a meet like this,” said Edmond’s head swimming coach Steve Riggs. “We have had so few meets this year and racing a team like Jenks gave us a clear picture of where we are and what we need to be doing as we get to the championship part of the season.”

North and Santa Fe will compete in the Metro Conference championships Tuesday at OCCC with Memorial racing in the Mid-State Conference meet on Thursday.
