14.  That is now the number of consecutive league championships that both the girls and boys swim and dive teams have won.  Saturday night at the Miami Rec Center the boys easily outdistanced Little Miami by 140 points to capture the SWOC title.  On the girls side, the much hyped Ross team felt short in their quest to upset Talawanda as the girls beat them out by 61 points, after only being seeded first by a mere 9 points.  Both Ben Crowder and Maren Patterson were named SWOC Athletes of the Year in Swimming and Diving as they both won two individual events and also both swam on two relays that finished in first.  For the boys Blake Madden also won two events and John Anzano and Sam Hool each won one.  On the girls side additional first place finishes were picked up by both Addie Lehman and Mercy Patterson.  A number of league records were also set at the meet Saturday night.  The girls 200 Medley Relay team of Mercy Patterson, Maren Patterson, Kenna Mondello, and Mary Kate Huddleston broke the league record, while the girls 200 Free Relay team of Mercy, Maren, Kenna, and Hannah Lippincott also broke the league record.  Individually Addie Lehman broke the girls diving league record, Sam Hool smashed his own league record in diving, and Maren Patterson broke the league record in the 100 Free.  The swim and dive teams will now begin their state tournament run with the Sectional meets this week.  Diving will be during the week at Miami and swimming will be over the weekend at St. Xavier.  Congratulations to ALL members of the swim and dive team for keeping the dynasty that is Talawanda Swimming and Diving alive.
