Tarheel Swimming Association

Mingo Creek, Wendell remain unbeaten through week two

From staff reportsJune 25, 2013 

— Three of the four local Tarheel Swimming Association teams posted wins in meets that were completed Wednesday due to the severe weather that crossed the area last Tuesday.

The Mingo Creek Rays (2-0) pulled a 263-249 upset as they hosted North Hills (1-1). North Hills, a Division 4 crew with 239 swimmers on its roster, nearly doubled Division 5 Mingo Creek in team size.

Full results from Mingo Creek’s win were not available at press time.

The Planter’s Walk Piranhas (1-1), also a Division 5 team, hosted Black Horse Run (0-2) and witnessed no surprises as they stroked past the Division 6 Mustangs, 300-213.

Triple winners for Planters Walk were Marie Rashleigh and Kelsey Moore (freestyle, breaststroke and butterfly), and Liam Givens-Keatley, Kelly McCue and Robert McCue (freestyle, backstroke and butterfly). Piranhas picking up two wins were Regan Eatman (freestyle and backstroke), Teagan McNeil (backstroke and butterfly), and Dax Hardy and Brenna Hardy (freestyle and butterfly).

The Planter’s Walk team set several pool records on the way to the win.

The 9-10 boys team of Dax Hardy, Jackson Beam, Luke Peters and Ethan Robinson set a new pool record in the freestyle relay with a time of 1:04.25. The 11-12 boys team of Ben Rashleigh, Keegan Sonye, Evan Peters and Givens-Keatley answered with new records in the medley relay (2:10.88) and freestyle relay (1:52.91).

Givens-Keatley also notched pool records in each of his three individual wins – in the freestyle (26.28), backstroke (30.75) and fly (29.12) events.

The Wendell Waves (2-0) stayed perfect on the season with a 244-157 win over Raleigh Racquet Club (0-2). Wendell swims out of Division 9, while Raleigh Racquet is a Division 10 team.

The Waves’ triple winners were John Riddle (freestyle, backstroke and butterfly) and Nicki Riddle (backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly). Double winners for Wendell were Mason Hetzell and Deana Ayscue (backstroke and breaststroke), Caroline Duttman (freestyle and butterfly), and James Riddle (backstroke and butterfly).

The Division 10 Zebulon Dolphins (0-2) ran into choppy waters swimming against a Division 8 opponent on the road. Carlyle & Chatsworth (2-0) defeated the Zebulon team 330.5-125.5.

Zebulon had a pair of triple winners in the meet – Avery Thomas (freestyle, breaststroke and butterfly) and Julia Wrenn (freestyle, backstroke and butterfly).
