Towanda boys, girls swimming and diving top Sayre
TOWANDA - The Towanda girls trailed 70-61 with just three events left on Tuesday, but a strong performance by Morgan Dreisch, Sarah Lamphere and Ronnie Black pulled them within one after the 100 back and Towanda had a strong showing in the breaststroke to get a 97-79 victory.
"The meet came down to the very end and our girls managed to get the win," Towanda coach Mike Locke said. "I am very happy with their performance."
The boys picked up a 112-68 victory.
"The boys meet had some close and exciting races tonight," Locke said. "I believe that some of the guys are finding out that hard work and paying attention to details can really pay off. Tonight, some of the guys tried new races and other guys tried new techniques with good results from both.
