We are just over halfway through the swimming season as the Metea Valley Mustangs host a matchup with the Naperville North Huskies.

200-Yard Freestyle

Next up is the 200-yard freestyle where both North’s Klara Gilvydis and Metea’s Amanda Schmitt get off to great starts. The swimmers approach the finish neck and neck, but it’s Schmitt who picks up the win by less than a second at 2:02.97. Gilvydis clocks in at 2:03.52.

200-Yard Individual Medley

We go to the 200-yard individual medley where it’s a good start from lanes 4 through 8. As the race continues, though, North’s Melissa Patterson takes a big lead and eventually wins with a time of 2:17.17 and gives North its first victory of the night.

50-Yard Freestyle

Onto the 50-yard freestyle, North’s Reagan O’Malley is fast off the blocks. The final leg is very close between lanes 3 through 5 and it’s Metea’s Sarah Voakes who stretches and gets the win by a matter of inches! Her time of 26.52 beats out teammate Molly Schalk at 26.76 and Sara Rossi at 27:93.

100-Yard Butterfly

Now at the 100-yard butterfly, Metea’s Leslie starts the race at the front and she never looks back. She finishes at 59.97 and is followed up by Patterson of North at 1:01.93.
