Waves finish the regular season with two wins

Team posts 8-1 record in dual meets

The Lombard Waves swim team completed its regular season with a pair of victories last week. The Waves defeated the Roselle Racers 401-252 in a July 12 meet at Paradise Bay Water Park. Three days later, Lombard beat the Hanover Park Sailfish 447-208. Saturday’s win gave the Waves a final regular-season record of 8-1.
Lombard will complete its season with two upcoming DuPage Swim and Dive Conference meets. Some Waves will take part in this Saturday’s Red Division “B” meet in Addison. Other Lombard swimmers will finish the season by competing in the Red Division “A” meet at Paradise Bay Water Park on July 29. Lombard, Villa Park, Addison and Carol Stream are the four conference teams competing in the Red Division this year.
Lydia Gruenwald of the Waves won three individual events in the 13-14 girls division during the July 12 meet against Roselle. She won the 100-yard individual medley, the 50-yard freestyle and the 50-yard backstroke. She also swam on a pair of winning relay teams.
The two other Waves who won three individual events against Roselle both compete in the 15-18 girls level. Grace Schwieters won the 100-yard individual medley, as well as the 50-yard freestyle and the 50-yard breaststroke. Elissa Haake delivered first-place finishes in the 100-yard freestyle, the 50-yard butterfly and the 50-yard backstroke. The two girls also teamed up with Allyson Griffith and Mairead Van Santen to win two relay events against the Racers.
The Villa Park Mariners finished the regular season with Saturday’s 386-219 victory over the Wood Dale Water Rats in Wood Dale. The win gave the Mariners a final regular-season record of 3-6. Villa Park lost its first meet of last week, dropping a 435-214 decision at Carol Stream on July 12.
Jake Koterba of Villa Park won three individual events in the 9-10 boys level during Saturday’s meet. He won the 100-yard individual medley, the 50-yard butterfly and the 50-yard backstroke.
Audrey Morgan of the Mariners won the same three events in the 9-10 girls division.
Ian Mueller won two individual events for Villa Park in the 8-and-under boys level. Olivia Bernardi claimed two individual titles in the 9-10 girls level, while Annabelle Thompson earned a pair of wins in the 11-12 girls level.
Brandon Zamar of the Mariners won the 100-yard individual medley and the 100-yard freestyle races in the 11-12 boys division. DeAnna Tate of the 13-14 girls level provided two individual wins for Villa Park, as did Maggie Connelly in the 15-18 girls division. Jack Burns turned in two first-place efforts in 15-18 boys events.
