Truckee claws past Greenwave swimmers
April 16, 2013
It was a clean sweep for the Truckee swim team on Friday.
The Wolverines swam past Fallon as the boys lost 151-80, and the Lady Wave fell 140-106.
Truckee's depth was too much for Fallon as the Wolverines swept the boys and girls relay races. Lyndsey Thurston and Tina Anders placed 1-2 in the 50-yard freestyle, respectively. Thurston came in with a time of 28.91 seconds followed by Anderson at 29.44.
Sam Martin, meanwhile, was nipped by Brittany Percin in the 100 butterfly — 1:05.60 to 1:06.15. Martin, though, blew away the field in the 100 backstroke as she cruised to a nearly 14-second victory over Annie Kruck. Martin touched the wall at 1:07.53 followed by Kruck at 1:21.25.
Alex Lynch placed second in the 200 free with a time of 2:15.81. Lynch (1:02.02) and Thurston (1:06.45) and Sierra Bivens (1:11.33) placed second, third and fourth, respectively in the 100 free. Lynch narrowly lost to Amanda Nocick, who came in at 1:01.95.
Anderson (1:26.28) and Josie Bekiares (1:42.41) took third and fourth, respectively, in the 100 breaststroke.
