With Grant in town for a swim meet at Arroyo Pool on Wednesday, the question wasn’t if the Davis High boys and girls would prevail. It was by how much.
The answers? The Blue Devil boys crushed the Pacers 140-13, while the DHS girls posted a 103-16 victory.
For the local boys, Connor Stapleton picked up individual wins in the 100 and 200 freestyle, helped the 200 free relay squad touch first, then teamed with Bradley Nicholson, Zac Anderson and Andrew Block to capture the 200 medley relay.
Those three each had individual victories of their own as Nicholson won the 200 IM, Anderson took the 100 butterfly and Block outlasted his competition in the 500 free.
Block also was on the winning 200 free relay squad, with Wyatt Millstone and Ujifusa, and teamed with Ujifusa, Nicholson and Owen Yancher to capture the 400 free relay.
Garrett Fisk (50 free), Alex Borowsky (100 backstroke) and Graham Fullerton (100 breaststroke) completed the Devil sweep of individual events.
The Davis girls matched that effort with first-place finishes in every events, as Colby Stapleton (200 IM, 100 back) and Kim Zhu (100 free, 200 free) won two events each. Colby Stapleton added wins in the 200 medley relay (with Julianna Chan, Alyssa Alvarez and Alice Renaud) and 400 free relay (with Alvarez, Renaud and Zhu).
Renaud grabbed a victory in the 50 free, Chan prevailed in the 100 breast and Mara Dominguez touched the wall first in the 100 fly and joined forces with Monica Ferrera, Haley Blackwell and Francisca Echiburu to win the 200 free relay.
