Warwick boys make history with win over Hempfield
Mark last Thursday’s date down.
For the first time in program history, the Warwick boys swimmers earned bragging rights against long-time power Hempfield, as they defeated the Black Knights 94-76 in their Section One opener at the Lititz recCenter.
For Ryan Mitchell and Warwick’s other seniors, they took advantage of their final opportunity to knock off the Hempfield boys, and Mitchell did his part with an individual win in the 100 freestyle in 51.37 seconds, in addition to competing on the first-place 400 free relay team (3:23.34). The loss dropped the Black Knights to 0-1 in league, 3-1 overall.
But junior Nick Beard was the Warriors’ (1-0 L-L, 4-0 overall) top-point scorer in the meet, earning two individual wins and helping two relay teams touch the wall with gold medals. In fact, he teamed up with Ian Harpel, Tyler Steudel and Seth Cagno to win the 200 medley relay in 1:45.79, putting the Warwick boys up early 8-6 and giving them a lead they never relinquished.
Then when Beard claimed the 200 I.M. in 2:03.56 in the third event of the meet, he helped the Warriors extend their lead to 28-18 and they never looked back.
The Warwick junior also finished first in the 100 breaststroke in 1:02.21, and when he anchored the 400 free relay to victory — a squad also consisting of Jonathan Zartman, Tim Griest and Justin Mitchell — the Warriors officially had their history-making win in the books.
Sophomore Jack Lance also chipped in with a win in the 100 backstroke (58.82), and sophomore Alex McCord added key points with a runner-up finish in the 100 breaststroke behind Beard.
On the girls side, Hempfield (1-0 L-L, 4-0 overall) managed to salvage a split, while also gaining a measure of revenge from last year’s loss to Warwick, defeating the Lady Warriors 94-76.
The outcome was up for grabs early on, with the teams locked in several ties. Hempfield, though, eventually went ahead to stay following the eighth event of the night — the 200 free relay, which they won in 1:43.05.
Overall, the Lady Knights took first place in six of 11 events, led by Val Urban, who registered a pair of individual wins.
Warwick (0-1 L-L, 3-1 overall) meanwhile, had its own share of double winners in the individual events, with senior Emily Cameron taking the 200 I.M. (2:05.22) and 100 backstroke (58.75), and junior Morgan Haney clinching top honors in the 50 free (24.43) and 100 free (53.68).
Those two were also members of the first-place 200 medley relay team, joining Maddie Schouten and Brianna Olivieri to claim first place in a time of 1:53.31. More SWIMMERS, page B-10
