Haileigh Kenyon, the lone senior on the Perry swim team, went out in winning fashion Monday by speeding to victory in the 100 freestyle during a double-dual against Carroll and Algona at the MCB pool.

The 2015 regular season ended for the Perry swim team at the MCB pool Monday as the Jayettes hosted Algona and Carroll for a double-dual, in which each team is scored individually against both opponents.

Carroll, with many more swimmers than Algona and Perry combined, had little trouble in collecting wins of 72-20 over Perry and of 78-12 against Algona. The Jayettes came up just short to Algona, falling, 46-43.

The Jayettes saluted their lone senior, co-captain Haileigh Kenyon, during the meet. Kenyon, a long-time member of the summer swim team as well, went out in style with a 3-1 mark in her two individual swims.
