Lorenzo Vaiardi

SALEM — Northeast Dubois boys swimming ran away from Salem in its Nov. 26 swim meet at Salem, thanks in large to part Lorenzo Vaiardi.

Vaiardi set two new school records at the meet when he swam a 1:01.92 in 100 Breastroke, and a 2:04.53 in the 200 Individual Medley.

The Jeeps bested the Lions as a team, 117-11. They won every male event they competed in, and were the only ones to compete in some of them. Members of the team competed against one another in relays and in backstroke and freestyle events. Trenton Harrison edged out teammate Preston Brinkman with a 2:17.07 time to 2:20.39 in the 200 Freestyle. Harrison also won the 500 Freestyle with a 6:22.33 time. Colby Stafford came out victorious in the 50 Freestyle and 100 Freestyle. Brinkman won the 100 Breastroke, while Ben Woods was the sole competitior in the 100 Butterfly.

Northeast Dubois could not, though, replicate that result in girls swimming. Salem won, 121-27. The Jeeps were not able to win any female events, but did have some finish in second place. Adelle Fravell swam a time of 3:08.17 in the 200 Freestyle, which was second only to Salem's Carlie Henry with a 2:53.45 time. Elizabeth Scheppers swam the 100 Backstroke. Her 1:32.19 time was second to Salem's Breanna Sumner and her time of 1:26.12. They also finished second with a 2:29.18 time in the 200 Freestyle Relay, which consisted of Fravell, Sabrina Dunning, Kendall Buechler and Jade Mundy.
