When its trip through the CNY Counties League was complete, the Baldwinsville girls swim team stood at 3-4.
The Bees’ attempt at gaining a winning league mark ran into turbulence in last Wednesday’s regular-season finale at West Genesee. The Wildcats, who finished first in the league, moved to 7-0 by beating B’ville 96-81.
And this came despite some early success in the Bees’ races. Kaitlyn Martin tore through the 200 freestyle in a winning time of 2:07.80, while Margot Courtois stepped up and claimed the 100 butterfly in 1:07.16.
Later in the meet, Samanda Sidorakis won the 100 backstroke (1:07.91) and Charis Parker claimed the 100 breaststroke in 1:12.80. Martin, Courtois, Elena Margrey and Amy Sidorakis needed 4:06.41 to win the 400 freestyle relay.
WG prevailed by taking two of the three relays and seeing two of its swimmers earn a pair of titles. Olivia Castro won the 50 freestyle (26.68 seconds) and 100 freestyle (58.01 seconds), with Kim Pedrotti first in both the 200 individual medley (2:23.76) and 500 freestyle (5:33.08).
B’ville will now get set for this week’s Section III championships, which run Wednesday through Saturday at Nottingham High School.
