Warren girls best Erie High

ERIE – The Warren swim teams traveled to Erie High on Monday, with the girls earning a 107-81 and the boys coming down to the final event, which was won by the Royals to edge the Dragons 85-82.

Coach Russ Beyer was pleased with a number of performances on both sides, starting with Emily Savedge for the girls.

She won the 500 free, swam a leg in the winning 200 medley relay and took second in the 200 IM, an event she is relatively new too.

“It’s an event she has only done a couple of times, and she had an excellent swim,” Beyer said. “Those are the things I like to see. Cassandra Guiffre had a good meet – she had a good split in the 200 free relay. It’s hard to spread them out sometimes. She swam three of the last five events and was up to the challenge. Same thing with Abbie Buerkle. She did some different events and did well.”

Lydia Latimer, Paige Johnson, Cara Anderson and Sabrina Johnson once again had strong meets for the Lady Dragons as well.

For the boys, Andrew Beyer, Cade Johnson and Stephen Ashbaugh all turned in big effort, with coach Beyer noting the performance of Tommy Rice.

“He dropped his time by three seconds in the 100 backstroke,” noted Beyer. “The kids stepped up and did a good job. It’s good to see that their hard work is paying off.”
