It’s senior night at the Waubonsie Valley pool as they honor the ones about to graduate as Naperville North takes warm up laps, getting ready for the conference dual.
Let’s start with the fastest race of the night with the 50 free. Naperville North’s Megan Simonson jumps out to the early lead and she’ll be able to hold on to it tapping in 24.86 seconds.
Let’s do a relay next, the 200 medley to be exact. Cameryn Schmidt diving in for the huskies for the second leg, giving them a strong breast stroke for Melissa Patterson to take over and maintain the lead during the butterfly. Final stroke and it’s Megan Simson who brings it home for north in 1 minute 51.52 seconds.
We cut the distance for the 100 fly. Kyle Mears from WV grabs the early lead and hangs on for a wire to wire win. A couple huskies, Hannah Wessel and Katelyn Chan, tap in second and third.
We round it out with the 100 yard free and Waubonsie’s Lauren Lee swims to the early lead. Coming down the stretch, Naperville North’s Kelly Zhou is pushing Lee but she is able to hold on for the win in 53.70 seconds but despite Lee coming in first, Naperville North would top the warriors on senior night 126 to 66.
