Riptides claim 22 first-place finishes

June 29, 2006

The Leavenworth Riptides are back in the water for another summer of swimming, and they're already piling up the first-place finishes.

The Riptides competed June 21 at Bonner Springs and piled up 22 first-place finishes. Lauren Jaqua and Ravyn Teeters led the way with four top finishes apiece. Jaqua was the individual champion in the 14-and-under girls' breaststroke and freestyle. Teeters won the individual medley and the backstroke. Both girls teamed with Kassidi Livingston and Greer Fisher to win the freestyle relay and the medley relay.

The 14-and-under girls proved to be the most dominating age class for the Riptides. In addition to their first-place finishes, Laqua and Teeters each added a second-place finish to their final prize cache. Jaqua was second to Teeters in the individual medley. Teeters was the runner-up to Jaqua in the freestyle. Plus, Livingston brought home fourth-place finishes in the freestyle and breaststroke and third in the individual medley. Fisher was sixth in breaststroke, seventh in backstroke and eighth in freestyle. Rachel Rice added a sixth-place finish in backstroke.

In the 6-and-under division, Alissa McCarter, Brian Lee, Ally Campbell and Charlie Peterson teamed to win the freestyle relay. In addition, Peterson won the boys freestyle and backstroke races. Campbell won the girls freestyle and backstroke.

In the 8-and-under boys division, Max Campbell won the freestyle and placed second in the backstroke and breaststroke. He also teamed with Elijah Wangerin, Ryan Jaqua and Logan Lee to win the freestyle relay. Abigail Eddy, Larkin Reilly, Briele Reese and Savannah Eubank teamed to win the 8-and-under girls freestyle relay.

Two 10-and-under boys relay teams earned first-place finishes. Paul Gilbert, Joseph Wangerin, Alex Elliott and D.C. Depaolis won the freestyle relay. Gilbert, Depaolis, Elliott and Jack Bresser then captured the medley relay championship.

Elijay Elliott, Jack Bresser, James Bates and Isaac Tisdel placed first in the freestyle relay in the 12-and-under boys division. Tisdel also placed third in three individual events. The 12-and-under girls were equally successful in the freestyle relay as Maggie Campbell, Ashley Dwire, Mariah Matthews and Lacey Knight placed first.

The 14-and-under boys freestyle relay team of Sam Metivier, Randy Harrison, Jordan Patzwald and James Morley placed first. So did the 18-and-under boys and girls combined freestyle relay team of Cody Byrns, Ali Roberts, Natalie Hall and Jessica Bradford. Hall also captured first-place finishes in the backstroke and individual medley. She placed second in freestyle and breaststroke.
