Four Grandview swimmers each nab two victories against visiting Tarpons

GRANDVIEW - The brother and sister tandem of Fabian and Cassandra Ruiz, as well as Grandview teammates Tavian Valenzuela and Dominic Garza each came away with a pair of victories in the individual events against the visiting Toppenish Tarpons last night.

As expected, the always tough Tarpons made off with a relatively easy win against the Neptunes, 521-273. For Grandview, Thursday's loss dropped the summer swim club to 2-8 in league play.

The Neptunes, however, showed some grit in several of the competitions. The most exciting battle of the night came in the girls 16&U, 50-meter breaststroke race. The top four swimmers all finished within less than a second of one another. Leading the way in the sprint was the Toppenish duo of Alexis Medelez and Katie Klingele, one-two with clockings of 31.36 and 31.82 seconds, respectively. Grandview's Tawnya Francis and Samanta Castaneda pushed the two Tarpons all the way, though, finishing just an eye-blink behind them with times of 32.05 and 32.34 for third and fourth-place honors.

The closest race of the night occurred in the boys 12&U, 40-meter freestyle. Toppenish, again, came out on top in this barn burner, but only eight one-hundredths of a second separated Tarpon Nathan Koerner and Grandview's Maurice Prieto.

It was nearly as tight a race in the girls 12&U, 40-meter freestyle. Ariana Regimbal of Toppenish sprinted the length of the pool in 26.19 seconds, but just two-tenths of a second back with a clocking of 26.39 was Grandview's Areesa Trevino.

The margin of victory was just two-tenths of a second, as well, in the girls 10&U, 40-meter butterfly. This time, it was Grandview prevailing in the photo finish, as Cassandra Ruiz hit the finishing wall in 34.48 seconds, compared to the runner-up time of 34.68 seconds recorded by Toppenish's Janealle Sutterlict.

Ruiz, it turned out, was one of four Neptunes who notched a pair of individual race victories against Toppenish. Besides the 40-fly, she was victorious in the 40-breaststroke, too.

Her older brother, Fabian Ruiz, was a two-time winner at boys 16&U. His victories came in the 40-meter fly and free.

Valenzuela, a boys 12&U competitor, got two wins for the Neptunes in the 40-meter breaststroke and the 160-meter individual medley.

The one other Grandview swimmer to nail down two victories in the individual events was Dominic Garza at boys 18&U. His first-place finishes came in the 40-meter breast and backstroke races.

All told last night, the visiting Tarpons won 55 of the 74 events that were staged.

Toppenish's leaders included Alexis Medelez (girls 16&U) and Katrina Johnson (girls 14&U), each of whom won four of the five events in their respective age divisions.
