In the last home meet of the season, the Richmond Red Devils Women’s team took on Arsenal Tech and East Central this past weekend in a double dual meet.
Mercifully defeating the Titans of Arsenal Tech, the Lady Devils looked to climb their way to first over East Central led by best times put out by Desteny Casanova (33.69), Summer Stephens (38.22), and Rachel Schweppe (38.88) in the 50 Freestyle while Junior Amanda Wolfe was able to secure a clutch, first place swim at a time of 29.60. The 100 Freestyle saw more best times put out by Stephens at a 1:30.36 and Casanova at a 1:16.67; along with personal bests by Savanna Blair, who grabbed a first place finish at a 1:04.58 and Sophia Laughlin-Foster at a 1.20.85. Blair saw another personal best in the 100 Backstroke securing a time of 1:13.71 while Senior Lauren Carr was able to bring home a best time of 1:23.34 and dominating first place finish in the 100 Breaststroke.
The Lady Red Devils closed out their last competition of the season at Tiano Pool with a score of 34-68, falling to the Trojans.
However, the Devils now seek to close out their season on the road with one last victory over Hagerstown on Thursday the 23rd before they begin their final preparations for Sectionals, which lies just weeks away.
