Cheney sinks Sunnyside swim team

YAKIMA - The Sunnyside High School girls swim team met Cheney last night at Lions pool, losing 113-37.

"We did well but had some mental and technical errors that hurt us," Sunnyside Coach Scott Southard said.

Cheney ended up winning every event.

In the 200 medley relay, Bailey Morris, Julianna Robert, Megan Razey and Brittany Bonilla came in third with a time of 2:39.17 for the Lady Grizzlies. They were well off the mark of 2:12.04 by Alexa Landreaux, Morgan Landreaux, Krystal Spinarski and Haley Pitts of Cheney.

Sunnyside's Rachelle Durfey finished second in the 200 free, finishing in 2:28.76. Teammates Hannah Glockner and Morris took fourth and fifth, respectively.

Bonilla and Robert took fourth and fifth place in the 50 free with Bonilla having a time of 36.40 and Robert swimming a 39.32 time.

Katie Knee of Sunnside barely missed winning the 100 free. Her time of 1:00.14 was second to Alexa Landreaux's time of 59.55.

"Katie should have won that race easily," Southard said. "Katie's our best swimmer and she's got a pretty darn good stroke."

Knee was winning head to head but her turns were terrible, he added. That's where she lost the race and her turns are something we need to work on, said Southard.

Razey took second in the 500 free with a time of 7:20.28, followed by Glockner's time of 7:41.34.

"I liked the way Razey swam in the 500," Southard said. "The 500 is a little outside her comfort zone but she did well. I was really happy with her effort."

In the 200 free relay Durfey, Knee, Bonilla and Robert placed third with a time of 2:13.74. Cheney came in first with a time of 1:55.66.

Sunnyside's Morris grabbed third place honors in the 100 backstroke with a time of 1:24.88.

Durfey came in second in the 100 breaststroke. Her time was 1:21.38 while Razey finished fifth with a time of 1:32.51.

Cheney won the 400 free relay in 4:26.62 while Knee, Durfey, Glockner and Razey placed second in 4:33.54.

"Razey was really good on that relay," Southard said. "She swam four events and this was her last one. She was tired but probably swam the hardest on that relay. I'm very proud of that," he added.

The Sunnyside's next meet will be the Mukilteo Invite in Federal Way tomorrow.
