Saturday was a big day for the Mariemont Warrior Girls' sports. The Warriors won two outright league championships in one day! The basketball team had clinched at least a tie, but won the title outright with a 10 point win over Madeira. Later in the day, the swimming/diving team won their 3rd straight league title. I have been with the website since its beginning in 2006. To the best of my knowledge, no school has ever won two league titles in one day. More details on both of Mariemont's championships are under the swimming/diving story and the weekly update.
The league swimming and diving championships were held Friday & Saturday. The diving finals on Friday were held at Mariemont High School. The swimming finals Saturday were held at Powell Crosley YMCA. Ten league swimming records were broken on Saturday, one of the largest numbers in one year since the league championships were first held in 2000.
Mariemont has been strong all season and continued that way winning the league title. It was the 3rd in the row for the Warriors, 5th out of the last 7 years, and 7th overall. Mariemont had 393 points, 99 points over 2nd place Indian Hill. Wyoming was 3rd with 257 points. Taylor was 4th, Madeira 5th, & Finneytown 6th. Four girls' records were broken, three of them by Indian Hill senior Devin Landstra. Landstra won the 50 freestyle in 24.46. The previous record of 24.58 was held by Alexandra Tracy (Indian Hill) in 2013. Landstra won the 100 backstroke in 58.70 breaking Elizabeth Drerup 59.23 in 2013. The Indian Hill 200 Medley relay of Landstra, Drerup, Libby Miller, & Bridget Pavick set a record with a 1:52.12. The previous record of 1:52.37 was held by Indian Hill in 2013. Both Landstra & Drerup were also on that team. The 4th record was set by Isabelle Murray of Taylor in the 100 butterfly. Murray's time was 56.80 bettering the previous record of 57.63 by Amanda Smith of Indian Hill in 2007. Murray won her race by seven seconds over second place. In the closest race of the meet, Drerup won the 100 freestyle in 54.79, .04 over 2nd place Cora Dupre of Mariemont. Abby Rapien of Taylor was a double winner. Rapien won the 200 freestyle (1:57.32) & 500 freestyle (5:12.81). Champion Mariemont had four event winners. Leah Dupre won the 100 breaststroke in 1:08.44. Broke Woellert won the 200 IM in 2:16.75. The Freestyle relay of Leah Dupre, Cora Dupre, Lainey Newman, & Rachel Munschauer was 1st in 1:42.02. The 400 Freestyle relay Woellert, Munschauer, C. Dupre, & Kate Overbey was 1st in 3:43.40. Freshman MaKenna Hack of Indian Hill won the 1 meter diving competition with 207.00. That was .90 points better than 2nd place Violet Robinson (Indian Hill). Devin Landstra was the CHL Swimmer of the Year. Emily Hardy of Indian Hill was the Coach of the Year.
Wyoming continued their dominance of league boys' swimming & diving. The Cowboys won their 10th league title in a row. In the 17 years of CHL swimming & diving championships, Wyoming has won 14 of 17 league titles. Their current streak is tied with Reading wrestling for the 2nd longest and is tied for 5th longest in league history. The Cowboys had 357 points. Mariemont was 2nd with 302.5 points and Madeira was 3rd with 255 points. Indian Hill was 4th, Finneytown 5th, & Taylor 6th. Six league records, four in individual events and two in relays were set. Carson Burt of Wyoming was part of three of those records. Burt finished 1st in the 200 freestyle in 1:44.90 The previous mark of 1:44.96 was held by Eric Lethander (Wyoming) in 2012. Burt also set a record in the 500 freestyle with a time of 4:38.14. The previous mark of 4:38.65 was set by Jonathan Rutter (Wyoming) in 2014. Burt's record is more amazing in that he won by 46 seconds over 2nd place! Burt, Christopher Rutter, Phil Brocker, & Connor Williams place 1st in the 400 Freestyle relay with a record time of 3:14.94. The previous mark of 3:15.79 was set by Madeira last year. Rutter was a double winner in the 100 breaststroke (1:00.78) & 200 IM (1:58.89). Alex Fortman & Jacob Waters of Madeira got into the record book in two events each.
