LOOMIS — The El Dorado Hills Tasmanian Devils swim team positioned itself one step closer to a perfect season after defeating the host Loomis Basin Dolphins last Saturday at Del Oro High 650-138.

Top Taz point scorers of the day were as follows: Katie Tadayeski, 10 points, 6 and under girls; Callahan McColley, 8 points, 6 and under boys; Alena Tadayeski, 10 points, 7-8 girls; Bryce Williams, 15 points, 7-8 boys; Alexis MacKie, 15 points, 9-10 girls; Patrick Sammon, 15 points, 9-10 boys; Catherine Wismar, 15 points, 11-12 girls; Curtis Seabourne, 15 points, 11-12 boys; Annalise Mullert, 15 points, 13- 14 girls; Terry Chen, 13 points, 13-14 boys; Sam Sruba, 13 points, 15-18 girls; Trevor Dong, 15 points, 15-18 boys.

Meets are organized into 83 events and teams strive to earn 5, 3, or 1 points respectively, by the top three swimmers in each event. Last season, the Taz designed an additional incentive for swimmers by awarding members blue, yellow or gold beads for achieving a personal best stroke time. Gold beads are awarded only when a time qualifies a swimmer for the Meet of Champions in August.

Twelve year-old JT Ross has collected 22 beads on his lanyard, five of them being gold.

“The one I’m most proud of is for the 50 yard butterfly. My personal best time so far is 30.98,” stated Ross.

The Taz will swim next against the College Green Gators July 12 in Sacramento.

The El Dorado Hills Tasmanian Devils and the College Green Gators share a deep history. Both teams were involved in the formation of the Suburban Swim League and are the only teams that have continuously been members of the league since its inception in 1967. The Gators will come into this contest with a 4-1 record.
