Swim roundup: No. 9 Irvine girls upset No. 4 Edison

OCVARSITY.COM

Irvine's girls swim team showed Tuesday the type of depth that makes it a contender in one of Division 1's fiercest leagues: the Pacific Coast.

The No. 9 Vaqueros swept all three relays and received double-victories from Julia Wright and Kate Lee en route to a 146-135 victory against No. 4 Edison in a nonleague meet at the Woollett Aquatics Center.

The final tallies reflected eight-lane scoring -- two more than the regular dual meet - in a format that further challenges teams' depth.

Lee captured the 200-yard individual medley (2 minutes, 11.77 seconds) and 100 breaststroke (1:07.15) while Wright touched first in the 200 free (1:55.84) and 100 butterfly (1:01.44).

In the fly, Wright edged Edison newcomer Genesis Navarrete by about three-tenths of a second.

Irvine also received key contributions from Camille Ross, who finished second in the 200 free (1:59.68) and won the 500 free in 5:26.39. She also split a 24.59 anchor in the 200 free relay.

Ross surfaced again in the 400 free relay, pushing Irvine to the lead and setting the stage for Kaitlyn Tsou to anchor the Vaqueros to the victory in 3:40.10.

Taylor Newton swept the 50 (25.15) and 100 (54.26) freestyles for Edison.

In boys swim:

Edison 152, Irvine 134: The Vaqueros' Justin Hatch won the 50 free in 22.90, out-touching Edison's Dylan Nelson (22.93) and teammate Jacob Lee (22.96) in narrow finish.
