Sunnyside swimmers drench Tarpons

TOPPENISH - The Sunnyside contingent of Katelyn Banks, Kalie Bestebreur, Summer Hazzard, Aidan Hudgens and Lindsay Schilperoort rang up a 65-0 scoring advantage in the girls 16&U division last night. The host Toppenish Tarpons were unable to recover, eventually falling to the visiting Sharks by a score of 474.5-328.5. Wednesday's swim meet closed out regular season play for the summer. The Sunnyside Rotary team, at 10-2, finished with the second best record - behind only the unbeaten Selah Dolphins. The Mid-Valley Summer Swim League championship meet, a three-day affair, gets underway this coming Friday in Selah. The Dolphins will be in search of their fourth consecutive championship meet crown. In besting the Tarpons last night, the Sharks took advantage of the chink in Toppenish's armor - namely, the girls 16&U division. Banks and Bestebreur rose to the forefront for Sunnyside. Banks emerged victorious in the 50-meter butterfly and 200-meter individual medley. Bestebreur won the 50-meter breaststroke and backstroke sprints. The other first-place finish at girls 16&U was claimed by Hudgens in the 50-freestyle. Sunnyside also received a big boost from its boys 10&U swimmers. With Myles Newhouse, Alex Alaniz, Logan Rodriguez and Austin Villanueva leading the way, the Sharks outscored Toppenish by a 62-13 margin in that age grouping. The Sharks were nearly as dominant in the girls 8&U age bracket. Behind the outstanding efforts of Chamelle Abringe, Tayler Bonzi and Alondra Trujillo, Sunnyside claimed a 40-11 scoring advantage against the youngest of the Tarpons. In probably the most anticipated match-up of the night - Sunnyside's Brittany Broersma going up against Toppenish's Alexis Medelez in the girls 18&U age division - it was the Tarpon who surfaced with the better results this time around. The two competitors are the league's premier swimmers for their age bracket. Broersma, besides helping Sunnyside's medley and freestyle relay squads chalk up wins last night, got the best of Medelez in the 50-meter breaststroke. She sprinted the length of the pool in 39.19 seconds, the clear winner over the runner-up Medelez by 2.34 seconds. Medelez, however, turned the tables on Broersma in the 50-meter butterfly, backstroke and freestyle races, relegating the Shark to second-place finishes. In the 'fly, Medelez clipped Broersma by exactly one second. Only six-hundreds of a second separated the two in the back. And in the free, it was Medelez winning by a margin of about a quarter of a second.
