S'side Sharks clip Whales, 445-360

Sunnyside got the victories from its usual cast of top performers-Toni Castillo, Kaitlyn Broersma, Katie Knee and Jacob Hollander-but it was several other teammates who swung the outcome of the battle the Sharks' way last night.

A fired up Wapato Whales squad invaded the Sunnyside pool last night and gave the Sharks all they could handle. In the end, though, Sunnyside pulled out a 445-360 victory. Thursday's win upped the Sharks' Mid-Valley Summer Swim League record to 7-0.

The 85-point margin of victory was much smaller than the first time the two swim teams met earlier this summer in Wapato, when the Sharks won by 155 points.

One of the reasons Sunnyside prevailed last night was the strength of its relay teams. On the girls side, Sunnyside went 8-0 in the relay events. The Sharks split with Wapato, four wins apiece, in the boys relay races.

All told last night, Sunnyside won 27 of the 37 girls races. Castillo, Broersma and Knee accounted for 13 of those wins. Castillo and Knee won all five of the individual events in the girls 12&U and 16&U divisions, respectively. Broersma was a three-time winner in girls 14&U.

Although Castillo, Broersma and Knee inflicted the most damage against the Wapato girls, there were three other Sunnyside names that haven't made the headlines regularly who contributed mightily. Tiny Lyndsee Anderson, a girls 8&U competitor, won three of the four races in her age division. Teammate Natalie Hernandez snagged the other 8&U victory for Sunnyside. 14&U competitor Megan Tyler picked up two wins for the Sharks, as well.

On the boys side, it was Hollander who stood out from the Sunnyside pack last night. A 12&U swimmer, he snared half of the eight individual race victories claimed by the Sunnyside boys. Coming up with the other four individual race victories for the Sharks were three-time winner Jakob Anderson (14&U) and Christian Murphy, the winner of the 8&U 50-meter breaststroke.

Wapato won 25 of the 37 boys events last night.
