EL DORADO — Host Union Mine fell to Cosumnes Oak last Wednesday in a Sierra Valley Conference swim meet. The Lady Diamondbacks lost 89-81 while the boys were defeated 105-65.
Swimming season-best times in her races, Union Mine freshman Caffrey Lynch took first in the 200 freestyle (2:14.67) and 100 backstroke (1:09.55).
“She swam very well and posted a new section cut in the 100 back,” D’back coach Steve Skidmore said of Lynch.
Other winning times came from Lauren Sanew in the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:31.09. The 400 free relay team of Kaitlin Watkins, Brionna Schafer, Lynch and Olivia Verbitsky finished first with a time of 4:22.49.
On the boy’s side, Grady Lynch swam to wins and season-best times in his events (200 free, 1:56.23) and 100 free (49.84). Jason Williams was a double-event winner in the 200 Individual Medley (2:15.54) and swam a lifetime best in the 100 butterfly (56.25).
The day ended with a very exciting 400 free relay race. The team of Lynch, Williams, Dominic Sanquinetti and Wyatt Hasemeier were out-touched at the finish by just a tenth of a second to conclude the meet against the Elk Grove area squad.
