Oak Hill easily swept to a 113-55 victory in the girls’ meet and 146-21 in the boys over Marion.

Ericka Ford and Hailee Scheffer each won two individual events to lead Oak Hill. Ford won in the 100 butterfly (1:09.56) and 200 individual medley (2:38.66), while Scheffer’s firsts came in the 200 freestyle (2:18.54) and 500 freestyle (6:04.05).

The Eagles’ Hannah Brown added a first in the 100 breaststroke (1:21.60) and Kierstin Wisner won the 1-meter diving as the only competitor. Emily and Melissa Ford and Brown were on two winning relay teams.

In the boys’ meet, Kegan Anderson, Chanse Mygrant, and Grant Brown gave Oak Hill three double winners. The Eagles won all 12 events.

Anderson’s wins came in the 200 individual medley (2:20.67) and 100 butterfly (1:00.36); Mygrant’s were in the 200 freestyle (2:09.18) and 500 freestyle (5:33.80), and Brown’s came in the 100 freestyle (:52.94) and 100 backstroke (1:01.29).

Foreign exchange student Jonathan Johansson won his first varsity race in the 100 breaststroke (1:20.70). Other individual winners were Austin Daugherty in the 50 freestyle (:25.34) and Justin Boldt in 1-meter diving.

“It was good to get back at it,” said Oak Hill coach Mark Yordy, whose teams had been off nearly three weeks. “Now, it’s a short trip to the sectional (Jan. 24).

“We tried a few different things, but most of our regulars were back in the water because they needed to get back at it.”

Marion had four boys competing against Oak Hill and Blake Beal and Aaron Manio were the top finishers with thirds in the 200 individual medley and 100 breaststroke, respectively.
