WESTBROOK – Westbrook High defended the Class B girls swim championship Monday here at Daven Pool, withstanding an Old Town High quest. Westbrook scored 225 points while Coach Doug Springer’s OT Indians scored 205 points.
Other team scores included: Mount Desert Island 186, Morse of Bath 150, Waterville 94, Boothbay 93, Orono 81, Greely of Cumberland Center 72, Freeport 62, Mount Ararat of Topsham 42, Falmouth 41, Camden-Rockport 40, Wiscasset 27, Traip Academy of Kittery 26, McAuley of Portland 14, Waynflete of Portland 11, Yarmouth 6, Belfast 6 and Messalonskee of Oakland 4.
The meet produced several of the season’s fastest racers. Gillian Beamer of MDI was voted the meet’s outstanding swimmer following her record swim of 1:09.0 in the 100 breaststroke and her 2:12.1 in the 200 individual medley.
Beamer also joined her teammates Megan Smith, Erin Fisher and Nellie Fox in the 400 freestyle relay for a meet record of 3:49.7. Fox, Beamer, Fisher and Corbett touched in 1:45.3 for a meet record in the 200 free relay.
Freeport’s Carrie Swan sprinted to meet records of 24.9 in the 50 free and 54.7 in the 100 free.
Orono’s Stephanie Ford closed her Red Riot swimming by claiming first place in the 200 free and the 500 free while the young Indians led by Mimi Ahn, Heather Clement, and Stacy Bloemen almost upset the Blue Blazer squad. However, Westbrook’s ability to final in both the 100 back and the 100 breaststroke proved too much for the Inadians to overcome. School Swimming
