As the weather starts to take a turn towards warmer conditions, under sunny skies the Oak Ridge Trojans hosted the Rocklin Thunder and Nevada Union Miners Friday in a dual tri-meet. The Trojans dominated in the pool with both the varsity boys as well as the girl’s team coming away with comfortable head-to-head victories against the Thunder and Miners, respectively.
Led by an impressive day out of Bryce Mefford, the Oak Ridge boys took down Rocklin 118-46 and easily outscored the Miners 131-13.
Bryce won both the 200 freestyle and 200 IM with ease, while Evan McCormick won two as well taking home the 100 free and 100 breast. Colby Mefford placed first in the 100 fly, Ben Dillard in the 100 back, and John Dutra in the 500 free.
The Lady Trojans also won both their meets, defeating Rocklin 94-68 and had no trouble coming away with a 120-31 triumph over Nevada Union. Oak Ridge finished with five first-place finishes on the girl’s team, coming from four different swimmers.
Jennifer Lathrop snagged two of the first place finishes with wins in the 200 free and the 100 free. The other three first places were earned by McKenna Harrop-St. John in 100 fly, Cassidy Jones in the 100 back, as well as Kylie McCormick in 100 breast.
Trojan teams won all three relay races.
