The Capital City Swim League opened its season with two Saturday meets that yielded two very different kinds of results.
Defending league champions Catholic High and St. Joseph’s combined to score 900 points in the early morning meet at the Crawfish Aquatics Pool. Catholic won the boys title with 467 points, while SJA placed first in the nine-team girls division with 433.
The second meet ended with Dutchtown High edging Lutcher by two points, 244 to 242, to win the girls title. The LHS boys tallied 228 points to finish 24 points ahead of Zachary.
Catholic and St. Joseph’s won every individual event at the meet that included no relays and no 500-yard freestyle.
Caroline Beene and Jeanne Fredric were double winners for SJA. Beene swept the sprint freestyle events, winning the 50 in 25.01 and the 100 in 54.58. Fredric won the 200 individual medley (2:17.61) and the 100 butterfly (59.48).
Nick Seagraves, who won the 200 IM (2:05.41) and the 100 freestyle (50.06) was Catholic’s lone double winner.
There also were three double winners late morning meet. Dutchtown’s Lilly May led the Griffins to the team title by winning the 200 IM (2:29.07) and the 100 backstroke (1:07.94). Lutcher’s Janey Louque won the 50 (28.00) and 100 (1:03.24) freestyles.
The Dunham School’s Kirkland Mawae was the only boys double winner. He also won the 200 IM (2:07.42) and the 100 backstroke (59.22).
