“Recent weeks of training have been hampered by colds, flu and other illness, but these girls have not lost their competitive edge,” Chambersburg coach Donnie Miller said. “As our health improves, I am confident the team will add to their successes.”

Liz Terrazas (50 freestyle, 31.78, and 100 freestyle, 1:09.05) and Layne Rydbom (200 IM, 2:34.60, and 100 butterfly, 1:13.62) each won a pair of individual races for the Trojans (1-6, 1-5 MPC).

Emily Stroble also won the 400 freestyle in 5:08.45.

Chambersburg also won all three relays. Terrazas, Rydbom, Stroble, Alea Burkholder and Chace Johnson were each on two of the relays, and Jessica Ho and Audrey Kough also swam legs.

Miller said, “We recognized three seniors tonight (Stroble, Burkholder and Tiana Rivera) and all three had terrific competitions — all swam at least one personal best.”

Chambersburg 107, Mifflin County 0: The Trojans basically had a meet against themselves, because the Huskies had no entries. Some events were not run at all.

Individuals with single wins included Aidan McMillen (200 free), Gavin Vink (200 IM) and Jacob Shifler (100 free).

The only contested was the 200 medley, and the Chambersburg swimmers on the winning team were Pong, Johnson, Damien Kerami and DeAngelo Santamaria.
