Winning every race to be won, El Dorado’s swim team out-swam visiting Galt Wednesday – the girls prevailing 134- 35 and the boys outscoring the Warriors 120-35 in the Sierra Valley Conference meet.

“We dominated every race,” said Cougar Coach Marc Hughes.  “We owned the pool!”
For the girls, double event winners were Marissa Garcia in the long distance freestyle events (200 free in 2:07.19 and the 500 free in 5:46.22) and Haley Owens in the 200 Individual Medley (2:22.39) and 100 back (1:08.34).
For the sprint events, Kaela Marcus brought home the 50 free in 28.37 and Shelby Ganzert took first in the 100 free with a time of 1:03.15.
As the Cougar crowd cheered and yelled, Ellen Tiedemann finished first in the 100 fly with a time of 1:08.09.  The 100 back was won by Haley Owens (1:08.34) and the 100 breaststroke was won by Kyle Covington (1:20.74).
Even though the girls weren’t swimming their preferred races, they had no problem winning each and every race.
“This is the third meet in a row where the girls have won every race,” Hughes said.
All three relay events took first place.  The 200 medley relay team of Marcus, Owens, Hannah Covington and Ganzert took first with a time of 2:06.91.  The 200 freestyle and 400 freestyle relay team of Rose Christeson, K. Covington, Garcia and Tiedemann brought home both victories with times of times of 1:48.72 and 4:00.49 respectively.
The Cougar boys were just as strong as the Cougar girls.
“This was the first time the boys started out strong, got the lead early, and held strong,” Hughes said.
Winning both individual events came from Mac Guinn ( 200 IM, 2:19.46 and 500 free, 5:15.89) and Daniel Pope who won back-to-back races in the 50 free (23.16) and 100 fly (1:04.47).   Helping the Cougars against  the Warriors were individual wins from the Matt Coen (100 free, 53.93), Will Meigs (100 back, 1:05.53) and Matt McNicholas (100 breast, 1:15.97).
