AC boys, SA girls win in county pool battle
BERNE—Two nearly identical scores were posted in swim matches between county rivals Adams Central and South Adams Tuesday night at the SA pool with the Adams Central boys team earning a 111-61 triumph while the South Adams girls raced to a 109-60 victory.
In the win for the AC boys, Gavin Kaehr recorded two new Adams Central school records in the meet. Kaehr notched a 2:18.40 swim in the 200 IM to win that race by over eight seconds. He had respective splits of :26.85, :35.63, :42.73, and :33.19 for his new mark.
Then later in the meet, Kaehr was the only swimmer in the 100 butterfly field to break the 1:00 barrier with a flat :59.00 clocking for another new AC school mark. He was the winner of that race as well by over six seconds.
Overall in the boys meet, AC had eight wins to four for the Stars and the Jets claimed all three relay events along with the diving.
The girls meet found a pair of double individual winners for South Adams. Talented freshman stroker Cady Farlow notched her wins in the 200 IM in 2:25.60 (an astounding win of nearly 20 seconds) and in the 100 breaststroke at 1:13.63. Kara DeLong also posted two victories as she easily beat the 100 freestyle field in 1:01.59 and then took the 100 backstroke competition with a 1:06.37 effort, a win of over 12 seconds.
