Youth roundup: Monster improvements by local swimmers

By
From page B8 | July 05, 2013 |

Late last month, the Davis AquaMonsters youth swim team sent a small contingent to Rocklin. Though the larger host squad got the win, many of the local swimmers set new best times or posted strong individual wins.

The Davis boys’ 200-yard medley relay team in the 15-18 event got speedy performances from Ben Hedman, Fernando Echeona, Henry Burke and Chris Irish to win its race handily, while Echeona added a victory in the 50 freestyle. Heldman took second place in the 100 individual medley then was third in the 50 butterfly.

On the girls side, the AquaMonsters 15-18 crew got points from Karenna Hunt (second place in the 100 free and 100 IM) and Fiona Buck, who swam to third in the 100 backstroke.

The younger AquaMonsters helped out as well, with Blake Fuchslin, Benjamin Feyrer and Remo Mann going 1-2-3 in the 6U boys 25 free race. Fuchslin also touched the wall first in the 25 back, a feat nearly matched by Carli Schulz, who finished second in the girls 6U 25 back.

When it came to setting new personal bests, the Davis group was paced by Fuji Guo, whose swims in the 9-10 boys 100 IM and 50 free were dramatic improvements.

A long list of other AquaMonsters followed suit, among them Maria Ardrade, Clara Ault, Zach Ayers, Alexa Bercutt, Christian Blair, Caroline Brennan, Molly Burke, Lucas Cardenas, Stella Cardenas, Lukas Crawford, Noah Crawford, Lindsay Dimitri, Erik Echeona, Linday Feyrer, Ada Freese, Ashleigh Hahn, Hawker Hechtl, Carson Lavellee, Chloe McClain, Maya McClain, Elle Motekaitis, Megan Mullin, Ryan Pheifer, Noel Riely, Keegan Ruiz, Skylar Schouten, Henri Schulz, Scott Soderquist, Vanya Soshnikov, Patrick Stodden, Jake Taylor, Lindsay Taylor, Audrey Teresi, Emma Teresi, Joshua Thompson, Mateo Thompson, Julia Thompson, Alexander Waterson, and Malaya Wright.

AquaStarz swimming

The Davis’ AquaStarz synchronized swimming team topped the rival Sunrise Swans in nearly every category in a recent dual meet at Rusch Park in Citrus Heights.

This is only the second time Davis has outperformed the Swans, who are always heavy favorites in league competition. But the AquaStarz, who have grown to become one of the largest in their conference, are quickly making their case to be considered just as powerful.

Davis came out on top in all four of the intermediate age groups and in two of the four novice groups. Davis swimmers Clara Riggle, Jessica Hughes, Madeleine Peauroi, Tess Van Schoor and Mia Unger swept the first five places in the intermediate 15-16 grouping, and were nearly matched in the intermediate 17-18 category with Alexandra Wong, Emma Meads and Molly Thomas claiming the first three places.

Other first-place AquaStarz finishes came from Joanna Hughes in the intermediate 11-12 event and Tara Christensen in intermediate 13-14.

In addition, Audrey Portello and Alexandra Barth took home the top two honors in the novice 8U group, a feat matched by Daryn Kuhlman and Kaz Angell among the novice 15-18s.
