For the second consecutive year, four pool records fell in Perkins’ sweep of Sandusky.

The Pirates scored a 136-67 decision in the girls meet, while the boys posted a 115.5-64.5 team victory Tuesday.

Blue Streak senior Gus Everson set three of the four records — breaking the 50-yard freestyle record twice.

Everson first broke the 50 freestyle mark in 22.07, then came back and bested that time while leading off the 200 freestyle relay with a 21.87. He also swam a pool-record 47.9 in the 100 freestyle.

Perkins senior Chris Waldock set the new mark in the butterfly, 52.0 seconds.

Both Everson and Waldock, who won the backstroke in 56.18, were the top performers Saturday at the Greater Buckeye Conference and Sandusky Bay Conference Swimming & Diving Championships.

The Perkins’ girls, winners of all 12 events, got a quartet of wins from Stephanie Gyurke — who set an individual pool record in the meet at Sandusky a year ago — and Kimberly Anglin, who teamed with Katie Quinn, Camille Cremean, and Emily Mariea to win the 200 medley relay in 1:55. The 200 freestyle relay of Chapman, Gyurke, Cremean and Mariea swam a 1:43.13 to win, and the 400 freestyle relay (Chapman, Anglin, Beth Gyurke and Stephanie Gyurke) tapped the wall as 3:50.35.

Stephanie Gyurke, the girls Most Outstanding Performer at SBCs, won the 200 individual medley in 2:14.56 and the backstroke in 1:04.15. Anglin won the 200 freestlyle (2:01.91) and 500 freestyle (5:20.70).

Four other swimmers had individual firsts for Perkins; Cremean won the butterfly (1:01.40), Mariea won the 100 freestyle (56.40), Quinn won the breaststroke (1:09.62), and Chapman won the 50 (25.54).

Kori Penrod of Perkins won the girls diving competition with 187.7. Chris Wiehe took the boys’ diving for the Pirates with a score of 158.4 points to win boys diving.

Michael Mulvin, Waldock, Jonathan Harris and Kevin Bressler won the 200 medley relay in 1:44.44, the 200 freestyle relay (Waldock, Kevin Ebert, Harris, Mulvin) were first in 1:30.96, and Ebert, Bressler, Kyle Lamarca and Mulvin won the 400 freestyle in 3:23.97.

Mulvin also won the 200 medley (2:03.91), Bressler won the 200 freestyle (1:56.31) and 500 freestyle (5:07.10), and Harris won the breaststroke (1:04.90).



Even as a Pirate fan, it was amazing to watch Gus Everson swim Tuesday night at Perkins.  It's not every day that you get to see someone break pool records of that long of standing.  Everson's time  in the 50-yard free style erased  a mark set 40 years ago in 1970 while his time in the 100 yard free style broke a record set in 1987.

It was also great to see the Pirates' Chris Waldock also set a new pool record in the 100 butterfly -- although that record was just a year old.

Great swimming all around!


Just like football...


Swimming is NOT just like football and thats why most of us enjoy the sport. 


I'll explain...I said the result...the RESULT...was just like football, not swimming itself.


You "ment" the result!  You didn't "say" the result.
