Fallon swimmers sweep Bishop Manogue

The Fallon swim teams swept Bishop Manogue on Tuesday in Carson City.

The boys won 109-97 while the Lady Wave picked up a 149-121 victory.

The girls squad won seven events led by seniors Tina Anderson, Sam Martin and Lyndsey Thurston.

Lady Wave senior Alex Lynch and sophomore Katrina Ward opened the meet by placing second and third, respectively, in the 200-yard freestyle.

Anderson picked up a win in the 200 individual medley (2 minutes, 46.17 seconds), while Thurston added a victory in the 50 free (29.09). Anderson also placed first in the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:26.45, while freshman Billie Snider (1:39.11) and sophomore Josey Moore (1:43.49) placed third and fourth, respectively.

Martin continued Fallon’s winning ways in the 100 butterfly (1:06.94), and Thurston added her second victory in the 100 free (1:04.33). Martin secured her second win with a dominating performance in the 100 backstroke.

She finished with a time of 1:06.32, while Cortney Gierke was second (1:27.60) and Ashley Kieszkowski was fourth (1:34.46).

Lynch nabbed her third second-place finish of the day in the 500 free (6:18.52), less than a second behind Manogue’s Hayley Brower. Fallon senior Lea Brown took fourth in the event with a mark of 8:09.18.

The boys, meanwhile, picked up four wins and overcame the disqualification of sophomore Kyle Grimes in the 200 IM.

Fallon’s depth in the relays proved to be the difference as the Wave were the lone team in the 400 free relay and placed second and third in the 200 medley and 200 free relays.

Nathan Hamry, Louie Mori and Garrett Snooks went 1-2-3, respectively, in the 200 free, while senior Keith Grimes picked a win in the 50 free (23.64). David Sandvig and Nathan Narag finished third and fourth, respectively, in the 50 free.

Hamry added a second-place finish in the 100 fly (1:17.70), and Grimes picked up his second win of the meet in the 100 free (54.13).

Kyle Grimes, meanwhile, rebounded in the 100 back (1:11.60) to take second.

The Greenwave’s next meet is at the Aqua 5 at 9 a.m. Saturday at Douglas.
