SALAMANCA — Kayla Jackson qualified for the Section 6 meet in two events andthe  Salamanca Central School swimmers came up with 30 personal bests as the Warriors defeated Springville, 101-85, to remain undefeated on the year at 9-0.

Jackson turned in the first sub-six-minute effort of her career in the 500 freestyle, touching the wall in 5:58.60.

She also won the 200 freestyle in 2:11.80.

Jessica Fish added wins in the 50 and 100 freestyle while Abigail Meek met pre-sectional qualifying times in placing second in both the 50 and 100.

“The final score was a little surprising,” said Salamanca coach Laurie Lafferty-John. “We haven’t competed against Springville much over the last couple of years. The only time we swam in a dual meet with them last year was in their pool and they only have four lanes so it’s hard to get a reading on their depth.

“The fact that we were home in our (six-lane) pool was a big advantage.”

Heidi Frank won the 200 indidivual medley and 100 butterfly for Springville (6-2).

“I  am very pleased with our younger girls who continue to improve,” said Lafferty-John. “Courtney Sherwood comes to mind ... she’s an 8th-grader who every time she dives into the pool seems to shave seconds off her time. Another one is Marijayne Schwartz, a 7th grader. She is long and lean and is beginning to find her place as a valid point getter for us.”

OLEAN — Makayla Sargent continued to rewrite the Olean High record book, slicing  into the Huskies’ best effort ever in the 500 freestyle with a time of 5:06.98.

“It’s not different than any other meet for us,” said OHS coach Dan Brown. “Makayla had another spectacular race.

“Chelsea finally qualified for the 100 breaststroke in the Section 6 meet, something she’s been trying to do all season. And we had a great effort from Erin Kalsman in the 100 fly where she took over half a second off her previous best.”

Abby O’Brien (201.50 points) won the diving competition for Allegany-Limestone.
