AURORA – It was an eery feeling at the WV Aquatic Center on Thursday night. There were no fans. There was no cheering section. COVID-19 restrictions prevent any families and/or students from being spectators at meets. However, that did not stop the Warriors from putting on a show, as they defeated West Aurora, 132-60, in their season opener.
Waubonsie won 10 of the individual events, including four swimmers who won two events each. There were no relay events.
Amehia Selmon won the 50-yard breaststroke in :34.57 and the 100-yard breaststroke in 1:16.12.
Kylie Mears won the 50-yard butterfly in :27.27 and the 200-yard individual medley in 2:17.84.
Meredith Martens won the 200-yard freestyle in 2:12.36, followed by Madeline Zito (2:14.75) and Julia Buchenauer (2:16.22). Martens returned to win the 500-yard freestyle in 5:58.08.
Grace Bergman won the 50-yard freestyle in :26.83 and the 100-yard freestyle in :59.71.
In diving, Alexis Schiro placed first with a 163.15. Malak Abdalla (3rd) and Naddya Favela (4th) followed.
The Warriors host St. Charles East on Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. at the WV Aquatic Center. Fans can watch the meet on YouTube & WVTV.
