The Edmond North boy’s swim team made it look easy as they swept rivals Memorial and Santa Fe for the city championship at Oklahoma Christian University Monday night.
The Huskies finished with 513 points, Memorial was second at 350 and Santa Fe rounded out the group at 196. The North boys and girls also combined to win the overall city title by a 92-point margin over Memorial.
“North is very good team and Memorial is not as deep so we pretty well knew the score would be like that,” Edmond swim coach Steve Riggs said. “The idea was to get good races and we got good swims out of all three schools, but it wasn’t real surprising.”
Sean Simpson, Dylan Anderson and Ford Parsons each won a pair of individual events for the Huskies. Simpson won the 100-meter Butterfly and 100 Backstroke, Anderson took titles in the 500 Freestyle and 100 Breaststroke and Parson won both the 50 and 100 Freestyle.
“Dylan Anderson’s 500 was real good that was his best time without a lot of competition,” Riggs said. “He’s really come on in the last month or so and he’s making it more difficult on me as far as what to put him in at state because he’s doing well in so many different areas.”
The trio also helped North win all three relays. Simpson and Parson teamed up with John Alba and Brian Hughes to win the 200 Medley Relay. In the 200 Freestyle Relay it was Parsons, Alba, Hughes and Ulises Serrano, while Simpson and Anderson joined Joshua McPherson and Zane Gray joined to win the 400 Freestyle Relay.
Other individual winners for North included McPherson, who won the 200 Freestyle, Dane Wind, who took first in the 200 IM.
Memorial earned a pair of second place finishes from Trent Bozeman in the 200 IM and Nick Welch in the 100 Butterfly. Leading the way for the Wolves were Colton Laramore and Daniel Stein, who each earned third-place finishes. Laramore was third in the 200 Freestyle, while Stein took bronze in the 100 Freestyle.
All three schools return to action next week for their conference meets. Both the Mid-State and Metro Conference meets are set for Feb. 5-6 at the Oklahoma City Community College.
