- August 8, 2012 SPORTS Page 17 Young Sweet Home Swim Club athletes place well at state By Bruce Davis For. The New Era The Sweet Home Swim Club has been busy training and com- peting in long course, 50-meter or Olympic-sized swim pools, since the voters of Sweet Home passed the local option levy in May. Most recently, several swim- mers competed in championship meets. Megan Hagar, 10, got things started off with a strong showing . at the Oregon Swimming 10 & un- der championships July 14 and 15. Megan competed in Beaverton at the Tualatin Hills Aquatic Center against the best 10-year-olds in the state. On the first day of the meet, she finished eighth in the 200 me- ter freestyle, ninth in 100 meter butterfly, and seventh in the 50 me- ter backstroke. Day two brought strong performances in the 50 me- ter freestyle, in which she finished sixth, and fourth-place finishes in both the 50 meter butterfly and 100 meter backstroke. The following week, July 19- 22, six swimmers competed in the Oregon Swimming 11 & over championships at Mount Hood Community College. Lauren Yon, 12, placed sev- enth in the 200 meter individual medley, fourth in the 50 meter breaststroke, third in the 100 me- ter breaststroke, and seventh in the 400 meter freestyle. She also com- peted in the 200 meter breaststroke and 400 meter individual medley, but did not place in those events. Mia Davis, also 12, competed in the 200, 400, and 800 meter freestyle events, as well as the 100 backstroke and the 100 and 200 meter butterfly. Though she did not place in the top eight, Mia had several best times including a 10-second drop in the 400 meter freestyle. Lucia Davis, 13, competed in the 50, 100, and 200 meter free- style events. After finishing tied for sixth in the morning prelimi- naries in the 50 freestyle, she and Coach Junia Calhoon chose for her to not Compete in the final of that event. Lucia later finished second in the 100 meter freestyle and was the 13-year-old girls state champi- on in the 200 meter freestyle. Makayla Nelson, also 13, placed fifth in the 100 backstroke, MeganHagar third in the 400 freestyle, seventh in the 200 backstroke, and seventh in the 200 freestyle. She also com- peted in the 50 and 100 meter free- style events. Rawlins Lupoli, 12, compet- ed in his first state championship, swimming the 100 meter breast- stroke. The younger swimmers were joined by 17 year old Naomi Gunselman and her 19 year old brother Gabriel (Gravy). Naomi competed in several events, but was hampered by sickness. Gravy competed in his last swim meet and was greeted by his teammates and family with hugs and words of thanks for being an outstanding teammate and mentor after finish- ing his final swim. Lucia Davis was back swim- ming at the Mount Hood pool the following week competing in the Speedo Western Section Sr. Cham- pionships. The meet is open to swimmers of any age from Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Hawaii, Wyo- ming, Montana, Colorado, Idaho, Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona. She swam in the 200, 400, 800, and 1500 meter freestyle events. Though she did not make finals in any of her events, she got best times in the longer three events. The swim club will be taking the month of August off, returning to practice Sept. 4. A team try-out will be held shortly after the team returns to training, or people interested can stop by a practice at the Sweet Home Community Pool for infor- mation about the team.
