Returning to home waters was just what the Washington Swim Team needed to earn its first dual meet win over the season.

Washington (1-2) defeated Chesterfield Farms by a 393-162 final score to triumph for the first time this season.

“The meet went great,” Head Coach Jennifer Alferman-Molitor said. “The kids did amazing and they were very excited about our first win of the season. We worked very hard to fix the mistakes that hurt us the last few meets and it paid off.”

Washington had been close to winning in its first two meets. Washington opened the season with a 291-243 loss to Cherry Hills and followed with a 279-250 loss to Chadwick.

Washington remains home next Monday, hosting Bridle Creek in a 5:30 p.m. meet.

Prior to the meet, Washington honored the memory of longtime Head Coach Robyn Greer, who passed away in the offseason.

“We were also very glad to have an opportunity to pay tribute to Coach Robyn and to have her family with us for our first home meet without her,” Alferman-Molitor said.

Due to pool length, the teams did not swim individual medley races. However, fans were treated to a double helping of freestyle races.

The first eight races were double the normal length.

In the 9-10 age division, Aubrie Moreland won the girls race while Gabrielle Mattli was third. Ryan Hoerstkamp and Spencer Coates finished second and third in the boys 50-meter event.

The 11-12 and older divisions swam 100 meters.

Washington’s winners were Lily Harrell, Robert Halsted, Connor Kriete, Emily Moreland and Michael Matthews.

Stingrays taking second were McKenzie Dohm, Louie Eckelkamp, Emily Reuwer, Nick Sikes and Tara Nolkemper.

Placing third were Sarah Eckelkamp and Squire Holt.

In the regular-length freestyle races, Washington’s winners in scoring heats were Alexis Perriman, Ryan Hoerstkamp, Claire Van Biljon, Robert Hasted, Robert Weirich, Cassandra Halsted and Michael Matthews.

In the breaststroke races, Washington’s winners were Dani Benhardt, Natalie Alferman, Mason Kimminau, Abby Lynn, Derek Van Booven, Hannah Whitacre, Tara Nolkemper and Michael Finck.
