Anchored by their seniors, the Cavaliers boys defeated the Stallions 231-52, while the girls cruised to a 249-50 victory.

The Princess Anne boys had three swimmers who each won two individual events. Senior Daniel Arris won the 200 free (2:06.92) and the 50 free (24.47), while classmate Brandon Washington placed first in the 100 back (1:01.15) and 100 free (57.46). Junior Eric Fuhs won the 200 individual medley (2:17.08) and 100 breast (1:09.92) while also swimming for the winning 400 free relay team.

Sophomore Joshua Jung won the 100 fly (59.66) and swam on the winning 200 medley relay.

On the girls side, Princess Anne senior Shannon Lonergan (29.47 in the 50 free and 1:07.26 in the 100 free) and freshman Charlie Burt (2:30.90 in the 200 individual medley and 1:09.57 in the 100 back) were both double winners of individual events for the Dolphins. Lonergan also swam on the winning 200 medley and 200 free relay teams, while Burt also swam on the 200 medley relay.

Senior Emma Jennings won the 100 breast (1:25.34) and also swam for the winning 200 Medley Relay.

The Cavaliers won all 24 events and placed the top three finishers in 22 of them.

Princess Anne coach Jay Smith was happy to see his junior boys’ 400 free relay and his sophomore girls’ 400 free relay teams win their respective events against his other three classes.

“They all swam well,” Smith said. “It’s good to pit them against each other. It’s a way of keeping them in on the season relays.”

Senior Alden Ewell was Green Run’s top swimmer, finishing third in the 50 free (27.78) and fourth in the 100 free (1:03.54).

Princess Anne now has a three-week break before a championship-level competition meet on Jan. 9 — the Kecoughtan Invitational — so Smith said it’ll be crucial to balance rest and work until then.

“Now we go back to work,” he said. “It’s all about training through break now. We’ll get them rested, then get back at it.”
