Sprinters help East defeat Kapaun

East swimming coach Joe Hutchinson and Kapaun Mount Carmel coach Chris Erickson talked about the importance of several races before Tuesday's meet, but most specifically the 50- and 100-yard freestyles.

"The East girls are a very quick team and they provide great competition for our girls," Erickson said.

Kapaun's Sarah Clark won the 50 yard freestyle with Kaitie Shinsato and Kaylee Wheeler of East placing second and third.

In the 100 yard freestyle, Shinsato and Clark swapped places with Wheeler taking third place. Shinsato and Wheeler both swam legs on East's winning relay teams as well, helping East beat Kapaun 102-68.

"We're both teams with a lot of depth and it's extremely important for us to perform well against them," Hutchinson said.

Both teams have bigger goals in mind.

"We're looking to add as many state qualifiers as possible, but it'll be a challenge (facing a team like East)," Erickson said.

In the 200 individual medley, Kate Spitz came in with the fastest seed time, but Marisa Meyer of Kapaun edged Spitz by .21 seconds.
