Sea Dogs fry Fighting Fish

By Eli Hurwitz

The Yellow Springs Sea Dogs swam strongly against the Forest Ridge Fighting Fish. It was easy to see the Sea Dog teamwork in the meet’s relay events; the Sea Dogs won 11 of the 16 that they swam. Aman Ngqakayi not only won three races in his age group, but he also swam with the 15-and-over medley relay team in their winning race. Brothers matched sisters at this meet, as Emma Reed and Youssef Reed, Evalynn Orme and Theon Orme all brought home five ribbons apiece for different events. Amélie Maruyama continued her winning streak in the girls six-and-under events, winning two first-place ribbons. Sam Lewis quickly swam to a freestyle victory in the boys six-and-under race. Now that we are in the middle of the season, the swimmers are getting faster at all of their events. Zoey McKinley swam her 200-meter individual medley 10 seconds faster than her best time. Fatou Reed, who swam her first event two weeks ago, has sped her 25-meter freestyle swim 10 seconds faster. At the end of the meet, our young villagers swam so fast the sun was still shining on them at the end of a wonderful meet.
