The Ripon Sea Lions and Manteca Dolphins were once again chasing the Turlock Sea Dogs this past Saturday, as they finished second and third, respectively, in the Sea Dog Invitational at Pitman High.
Turlock captured its third invitational title of the season with the Mid-Valley Swim League Championships still remaining. The Seadogs racked up 1,332.5 points against the 927 from Ripon and 786 from Manteca.
The two local clubs had their fair share of highlights, however, as both came away with several new meet records and individual high-point honors.
Manteca had five high-point champions, including two from the same division. Johnny Buonauro and Scott Tolman shared the 13-14 boys crown, and both were part of meet-record performances. They teamed up with Trevor Allen and Jacob Evans to clock record times in the 200-yard medley relay (1:54.70). The same quartet came up seven hundredths of a second short of tying the 200 free relay record.
Tolman, continuing his season-long dominance, set the meet standard in two individual events. He shattered the 27-year-old 100 individual medley record by more than 3 seconds in 59.35. His winning 50 breaststroke time of 28.54 is another new all-time meet low.
Both Tolman and Buonauro each won all three of their individual events, as did Ashlynn See in winning the 7-8 girls division title. Hayden Beier (7-8 boys) and Mallory Brubaker (11-12 girls) round out the Dolphins’ high-point winners. Delaney Brubaker (second, 7-8 girls), Austin Welch (third, 15-16 boys) and Jeremy Coronado (second, 17-18 boys) are other standouts of note.
Neither Rylee Beidleman nor Sydnee Vieira won the 9-10 girls high-point title, but they had a big day anyway.
Vieira was in on four record-setting efforts. Individually, she won the 50 backstroke in 35.33. Her 50 freestyle time of 30.26 bettered the previous best by two hundredths of a second, but she settled for second place. Vieira finished third in the division on points.
Beidleman is new Sea Dog Invitational record holder in the 9-10 50 fly, earning first place in 33.19. She and Vieira joined Hana Kamler and Amy Bacay to win the 200 medley relay in record time (2:28.46). Haven Fasani, Beidleman, Kamler and Vieira are the new 200 free relay record holders in 2:09.83.
Matthew Trejo came away with another first-place high-point trophy to go with the new 9-10 boys 50 fly record of 31.14. Amelia Trejo and Kailee Inderbitzen finished 1 and 2 in the 6-under girls point standings. Jacob Thompson triumphed in the 11-12 boys points race. Andria Martin and Chloe Winter placed second and third, respectively, in 13-14 girls. Josiah Scholten finished tied for third in 17-18 boys.
Lizzie Taggar placed third in 11-12 girls and was part of the record-breaking 200-medley relay quartet of Maddy Cannon, Janessa Inderbitzin and Elizabeth Wenner. They blazed to a time of 2:13.34.
Manteca will go head-to-head with Turlock this Saturday at Sierra High, while Ripon hosts the Ceres Dolphins and Oakdale Gators.
