1F - December 26, 2012 SPORTS Page 17 Girls win swim invitational but third place boys lack depth 4L Memo to Sweet Home boys who can swim or want to learn: the Huskies need you. Boosted by the large and strong freshman contingent, Sweet Home's girls won their own invita- tional meet going away Thursday, Dec. 20, but the boys finished third behind Philomath and Central. The girls scored 103 points to 77 for Stayton and 46 for Philo- math, their closest competition in a meet that involved six teams that will be in the district meet. The boys finished with a victory in the 400 Freestyle Relay but no indi- vidual winners, scoring 60 points. Phitomath edged Central for first place, 78-74. "The numbers are hurting us in the guys," Coach Doug Peargin said. "The guys are lean. If they don't all place at districts, we're in trouble." With five of their eight swim- mers seniors, the future doesn't look too promising at the moment either. Peargin said it's never too late to start swimming. "I'll always take somebody,', he said. Meanwhile, the girls had three four-event winners in freshmen Es- tiler Gunselman and Makayla Nel- son and senior Naomi Gunselman, as the Huskies took first-in seven of the 11 events. Nelson swam the fourth-fast- est 200 (2:03.72) and 500 (5:33.34) freestyles in school history and Es- ther Gunselman's wins 100 Butter- fly (1:09.47) and 100 Backstroke (1:08.54) were lifetime bests. All three swimmers contributed to two relay wins each. "I'm surprised we're swim- ming as well as we are at this point in the season," Peargin said. "Es- ther's tearing it up. The younger girls are starting to pull points for US." Sweet Home will be back in action at the Stayton Invitational Thursday, Dec. 27, before hosting a three-team meet on Jan. 4.
