The Fenwick swim team won all three relay events and also claimed three individual races en route to defending its own invitational with a score of 544 on Saturday.
Crosstown rival OPRF, who earlier in the week lost a dual meet to the Friars 132-53, finished fifth by scoring 212 points. Loyola (406), St. Charles North (356) and Sandburg (341) checked in at spots two through four, respectively.
St. Charles North’s Monica Guyett (200-yard freestyle, 500-yard freestyle) and Loyola’s Evan Swenson (50 freestyle, 100-yard breaststroke) were the only multiple individual event champions at Fenwick, powering the North Stars and Ramblers to strong team results.
Diver Michelle Kalupski set the tone for a successful afternoon for the Friars when she took top honors, scoring 371 off the platform. Teammate Ann Mullen took sixth (274.20) in diving. The other individual winners for Fenwick included Paulina Kaminski in the 200 yard IM (2:10.22) and Mimi Schneider in the 100 yard freestyle (52.40).
The Friars’ considerable depth was on display in the 100-yard breaststroke and 100-yard butterfly as three swimmers garnered top five showings in both events. In the 100 breast, Kaminski (1:07.02), Genevieve Curry (1:09.27) and Nora Gartland (1:09.31) finished two through four behind Swenson. Kierston Farley Sepe grabbed second place in the 100 fly at 59.53, while teammates Katarina Kunz touched the wall at 1:03.22 (fourth) and Katie Vulich at 1:03.24 (fifth). Fenwick swam well in the 100-yard backstroke as well with Farley Sepe clocking in at 1:00.72 for third and Maggie Sheean 1:01.09 for fourth.
Other strong performances included Colleen Barron’s fourth place finish in the 50-yard freestyle at 25.31, and Grace Gibbons placing fifth in the 500-yard freestyle (5:25.78) and sixth in the 200-yard freestyle (2:01.34).
The Friars dominated the relay races. In the 200 medley relay, Sheean, Schneider, Genevieve Curry and Barron touched the wall at 1:48.82 for a victory, while the quartet of Kaminski, Barron, Adelaide Curry and Schneider claimed the 200 free relay at 1:39.15. The same group captured the win in the 400 free relay, posting a 3:36.54.
Oak Park-River Forest also enjoyed a productive afternoon at the invite. Allana Dassoff finished fourth in the 100-yard freestyle with a time of 54.53 seconds, and Faith Lewis took sixth in the 200-yard IM in 2:18.73.
“We saw some tired swims Saturday [at Fenwick] but as a team I’m proud of how well they carried themselves,” said OPRF coach Clyde Lundgren. “We have an eye towards the end of the season, and I think this week we took steps towards reaching those goals while taking care of what’s right in front of us. I’m excited to see their work pay off.”
