Two more meet victories kept the Baldwinsville girls swim team undefeated as it matched the CNY Counties League’s other unbeaten side, West Genesee, stroke for stroke in the pool.
In last Tuesday’s meet at Nottingham against the combined Syracuse city squad, the Bees got two titles from Kaitlyn Martin on the way to a 94-84 victory.
Martin began her work in the 200 freestyle, where she held off teammate Samantha Sidorakis, 2:06.24 to 2:08.66, and followed it up by claiming the 100 freestyle in 59.31 seconds.
Emma Atkinson was busy, too. After teaming with Lauren Guild, Brooke Atkinson and Megan Eubank to win the 200 medley relay (2:10.21), she went to the 200 individual medley and won in 2:33.51, just ahead of Amanda Johnson (2:34.42) in yet another 1-2 B’ville finish.
Sidorakis pulled away to win the 100 backstroke in 1:05.80. Charis Parker, in 26.98 seconds, claimed the 50 freestyle ahead of Allie Connor (27.82 seconds). Marissa Foriero earned second place in the 500 freestyle in 6:12.88.
B’ville returned home Friday night to face Oswego, and it was more superior peformances on the part of the Bees, who made it 6-0 with a 55-38 romp over the Buccaneers.
Again winning twice, Martin edged Allie Connor in the 50 freestyle, 27.30 seconds to 27.51, but didn’t stop there, going to the 500 freestyle and claiming that event in 5:49.63 as Margaret Walsh (6:03.81) earned second place.
Charis Parker took on a larger role, too, starting when she teamed with Martin, Sidorakis and Connor to swim the 200 medley relay in a swift 1:59.54. Right after that, in the 200 IM, Parker prevailed in 2:20.71, later adding a title in the 100 breaststroke in 1:09.13.
In a unique 100 butterfly race, Connor and Atkinson had a dead heat, each finishing in 1:06.12, but Johnson was alone atop the 200 freestyle (2:12.99) and Sidorakis earned first in the 100 backstroke in 1:07.55. To close it out, Sidorakis joined Connor, Martin and Elena Margrey as B’ville, in 4:03.30, got past Oswego (4:04.56) to win the 400 freestyle relay.
All that was left, before the Oct. 17 showdown with West Genesee, was a meet this Thursday against Cicero-North Syracuse at the Le Moyne College pool.
