Corry swim coach Ryan Lawrence was figuring out the boys score before and after every event.
He knew every place, and every point would be important.
When Evan Melnichak won Thursday’s diving event, the Beavers pulled within one point of the lead.
When Kyle Labowski took first in the 100 butterfly, CAHS took the lead. But it wasn’t until Eric Matteson and Parker Brown went 1-3 in the 100 breaststroke that the win looked possible.
The Beavers wrapped it up winning the closing 400 free relay with Labowski, Melnichak, Brandon Dreese and Brent Benedict.
In the end, Corry bested General McLane, 92-81.
“What an exciting meet,” admitted coach Lawrence. “There were plenty of career best swims. There were a large number of exciting races, not just for first but the much-needed seconds, thirds, fourths and fifths.
