Pacer swimmers top Canby heading into Civil War meet

The Lakeridge swim teams had little trouble with Canby in their final tune-up before taking on Lake Oswego to close out the regular season.

The Pacer boys won handily 95-75 while the girls were dominant once again 130-40.

The Lakeridge boys scored impressive victories, starting with the medley relay team of Alex Schaffer, Owen Hart, Jackson Waste and Max Swaim, which won by more than a second.

Sam Swaim followed with a three-second victory in the 200 freestyle, finishing in just under two minutes.

Liam O'Shea then cruised to a win in the individual medley in a time of 2:09.43.

Canby then went on a run with three straight victories but Lakeridge then swept the 500 freestyle. O'Shea was untouchable, winning in a time of 5:11.97, followed by Waste and Matthew Lautze.

CJ Hansen scored a close victory in the backstroke, touching out Canby's top competitor in 1:01.52.

In the girls race, the Pacers were tough to handle again.

After a 1-2 finish in the medley relay, Jordynn Canelis, Kelley Manbeck and Bailey Morris claimed the top three places in the 200 freestyle with Canelis winning in 2:16.66.

Cristal McAninch won the 200 IM in 2:32.25, followed by teammates Madison Canelis and Lisa Douglas.

Rowan Hauber and Noelle Foden-Vencil went 1-2 in the 100 butterfly. Hauber touched the wall in 1:03.47 to win.

Douglas, Keaton Weil and Manbeck then swept the 100 freestyle with Douglas barely edging on Weil with a time of 1:04.43.

It was another sweep in the 500 freestyle, led by Brenda Cha in 5:46.27 in an event she doesn't often swim. Foden-Vencil took second and Dorothy Wang was third.

After another 1-2 finish in the 200 freestyle relay, Keaton Blovad scored a lopsided victory in the backstroke, winning in 58.99 seconds.

Wrapping up the individual events, Sonya Ahmadyar, Wang and April James swept the breaststroke.

Lakeridge will battle Lake Oswego tonight (Thursday) at 6 p.m. before readying for districts.
