EL DORADO HILLS — The El Dorado Hills Tasmanian Devils swim team defeated the Folsom Sea Otters at the El Dorado Hills Community Services District swimming pool Saturday in the first dual Suburban Swim League meet of the season for both teams.

The final score was 650-138.

The meet started off strong for the Taz as they swept the 100 yard Individual medley, 100 yard free relay, and the 100 yard medley relay.

“I’m very excited for our first meet, and for our new swimmers. I just know we’ll continue to post some excellent times throughout the day,” Taz head coach Marc Brown said.

Brown believed his team would do well, despite facing some challenges.

“We should do pretty good today, although we are missing quite a few older swimmers due to graduation and other events,” he said

Top scoring Devils were: Katie Tadayeski, 10 points, 6 and under girls; Callahan McColley, 8 points, 6 and under boys; Kate Goff, 11 points, 7-8 girls; Bryce Williams, 15 points, 7-8 boys; Alexis MacKie, 13 points, 9-10 girls; Patrick Sammon, 15 points, 9-10 boys; Catherine Wismar, 15 points, 11-12 girls; JT Ross, 15 points, 11-12 boys; Payton Valencia, 15 points, 13-14 girls; Everett Forbes, 11 points, 13-14 boys; Sam Sruba, 11 points, 15-18 girls; and Jason Phen, 15 points, 15-18 boys.

This Saturday, the Taz are scheduled to visit the nearby Sierra Sharks
