The Perry girls swimmers returned to their home pool for the first time in almost a month Tuesday when they hosted Newton and Oskaloosa for a double-dual. The format used called for each team to be scored against each opponent separately.
Newton (who shares with both Colfax-Mingo and Pella) topped Perry, 64-30, and Oskaloosa, 83-11, with Perry a 57-35 head-to-head winner over Oskaloosa.
Perry was third against Newton and second to Oskaloosa in the 200 medley relay, with Vivian Gonzalez, Anna Ridnour, Sarah Vaughn and Amanda Holwegner touching in 2 minutes, 21.43 seconds.
The Jayettes were second to Newton and topped Oskaloosa in the 200 free relay as Ridnour, Holwegner, Abby Herman and Dannah Karolus combined to finish in 2:00.89. The Perry quartet of Vaughn, Gonzalez, Karolus and Breanna Penenger were 2-1 (against Newton/Oskaloosa) in the 400 free relay with a clocking of 4:26.92.
Penenger won the 200 free in a personal-best 2:13.56, with Avery Miner 3-2 in 2:35.58 while Karolus was 2-1 (2:39.9) and Ridnour 3-2 (2:44.55) in the 200 individual medley.
Herman had a personal-best (PB) time of 29.41 to tie for second against Newton and beat Oskaloosa in the 50 free, with Holwegner third to Oskaloosa in 31.21.
Karolus was 2-1, in 1:13.91, and Gonzalez 3-2, in a PB of 1:25.31, in the 100 butterfly, with Herman 2-1 in a PB of 1:06.48 while Miner was second to Oskaloosa in the race in 1:11.53.
Penenger touched with a season-best 6:01.54 to place 2-1 in the 500 free, with Vaughn tallying a PB of 6:13.61 to place 3-2 in the event.
Gonzalez was third against both visiting teams in the 100 backstroke with a time of 1:19.12, with Ridnour 2-1, in 1:26.01, and Holwegner second to Oskaloosa, in 1:31.84, in the 100 breaststroke.
Perry also received a PB from freshman Shekynah Haworth, who posted a 1:44.69 in the junior varsity 100 backstroke.
The Perry swimmers will not see competition until Tuesday, when they will join Oskaloosa and Williamsburg for a meet in Grinnell. Perry will then visit Des Moines North Oct. 5.
