Swimmers kick off season at Rosenberg with wins

On Tuesday, Oct. 6, the Bay City High School swim teams traveled to Rosenberg for a tri-meet with Lamar Consolidated and Terry.

All swimming distances are in yards.

The girls came away with wins over Lamar (54-32) and Terry (59-27).  The ladies were able to sweep all three relays.

Lucy Frick (09), Megan Moya (09), Glory Vargas (12), & Makenzie Austin (10) took top honors in the 200 medley relay.

Moya, Adonaia Curtis (10), Suhana Khondker (09), & Austin touched first in the 200 freestyle relay.

Vargas, Frick, Curtis, & Khondker closed out the meet with a win in the 400 free relay.

Double individual winners for the girls were Vargas (200 individual medley & 100 butterfly), Frick (50 free & 100 backstroke), and Moya (100 free & 100 breaststroke).

The boys defeated Lamar (54-38) and Terry (54-39).

One-two finishes in both the 500 free and diving were the bright spots for the guys.  Blake Oros (10) took the 500 free, while Ashton Wallace (10) took the top spot in diving.

Relay depth made the difference for the guys, as the posted four (4) top-three finishes.

200 medley relay – 3rd – Jordan Wright (12), Matthew Brooks (11), Michael Vargas (10), Daniel Dye (11)

200 free relay – 2nd – Wright, Dye, Brooks, Chris Peralta (11)

200 free relay – 3rd – Gage Kolojaco (12), Jo Daniel Peralta (09), Ethan Yates (10), Oros

400 free relay – 2nd – C. Peralta, Dye, Oros, Vargas

"What a way to start the season! We were pretty thin on the girls’ side – with only six – but managed to rack up enough wins to take down those larger teams," BCHS swim coach Bob Button said. 

"The guys got their wins via depth.  Terry’s All-American senior, Dereck Montgomery, gave us some serious trouble.  That kid powered his relays to big wins and won individually in two of his off events.

"Our boys were able to pick up a lot of points with second- and third-place finishes, and that offset the top kids Lamar and Terry threw at us. Our combined scores had us with wins over Terry (113-66) and Lamar (108-70)."

"Our three divers, Ashton, Gage, and Ethan, already have their six-dive lists," said BCHS diving coach Clare Button. "We are building on skills from last year and are working toward their eleven-dive lists.  We anticipate sending all three to regionals this year."

Bay City is hosting Sweeny and Hightower this week. Only players and coaches will be able to attend due to COVID-19.
