Arabians splash past Indians twice


The Lady Arabians’ squad was just as dominant, but there were several competitive events against the young Anderson team. The 200-yard medley relay team of Rebekah Monnier, Madison Kordes, Micalah Booher and Breanna Oaldon led off the night with a nearly 2-second win over Anderson’s Aspen Bond, Hannah Boerner, Alexa Bramwell and Ashley Lashbrook.

Pendleton had an individual winner in all 11 events but Anderson had a second place in 10 of them. “We swam very well, it’s the first meet this year we did not look afraid when we were behind,” said Anderson girls coach Dave Renz. “I told them before the meet, I don’t care what the score is, I expect you to fight and compete, drop time and go after it and I thought they did that for the most part. I was pleased with the competitiveness.”

Maydak was just as happy with his squad, especially after being a little disappointed in times from Tuesday’s meet with Liberty Christian. “This is our last meet before heading into winter break,” said Maydak. “I warned them that tonight’s results will have a reflection in how hard practices will be during the break. I think they responded well, I was really happy with our times tonight, we had a lot of personal bests.”

Individually, Maydak praised Madison Brand and Madison Kordes. “Both Brand and Kordes swam out of their minds tonight,” Maydak said. Kordes won the 200 freestyle by 7 seconds and bested Boerner by three ticks in the 100 breaststroke, while Brand won both the 50 and 500 freestyle events.

In the girls diving competition, PH’s Taylor Fiew finished with 234.55 points while teammate Kylee Lloyd scored 172. On the boys side, Pendleton’s Dylan McCammon scored 308.4 points with several impressive dives. Mats Klink had 161.65 points and Anderson’s Bryant Swinford had 155.20 to place third.

Pendleton is now 8-1 and will face Delta on Jan. 9. Anderson is 2-3 and will be in action again on Jan. 11 in the North Central Conference meet.
