Waves and Mariners both improve to 2-0

Villa Park beats Glendale Heights; Lombard defeats Addison

The Lombard Waves and Villa Park Mariners both moved their 2018 DuPage Swim and Dive Conference records to 2-0 with recent home victories. The Mariners jumped to 2-0 with a 447-180 win over Glendale Heights on June 13 at Jefferson Pool. The Waves raised their record to 2-0 by defeating Addison 384-237 on Saturday at Paradise Bay Water Park.
The Waves opened their season with a 393-191 over the Wood Dale Water Rats in Wood Dale on June 6. On that same evening, the Mariners defeated the Bloomingdale Barracudas 362-289 in a meet at Jefferson Pool.
The Waves and Mariners were supposed to square off in a June 9 meet in Lombard, but that competition was washed out by heavy rain.
Villa Park swimmers who posted three individual victories in the meet against Glendale Heights included: Ian Mueller (9-10 boys), Filip Palutkiewicz (11-12 boys), Grace Roucka (15-18 girls) and Jack Burns (15-18 boys).
Lombard’s list of three-time individual champions on Saturday included: Alyssa Bylsma (8-and-under girls), Luke Schwarz (8-and-under boys), Avery Schwarz (9-10 girls), Lillian Vish (11-12 girls), Thomas Florey (13-14 boys), Lydia Gruenwald (15-18 girls) and Daniel Bajda (15-18 boys).
The Waves and Mariners swim in the conference’s Red Division. Bloomingdale and the Hanover Park Sailfish are also members of the Red Division this year.
The Waves and Mariners will both conclude the season at the Red Division “A” Meet in Bartlett on July 28.
