Bainbridge finished the season by soaking Bishop Blanchet 108-74 in girls varsity swimming & diving late last week at the Bainbridge Aquatic Center.

The Spartans claimed first place in seven races, as well as the 1-meter diving event.

While the Braves won the first varsity race last Friday, with a victory in the 200-yard medley relay, Bainbridge quickly took control to take the next two races, and then the three events following the 50-yard freestyle.

Amelia Kimball notched the inaugural first-place win for the Spartans against Blanchet.

She was first in the 200-yard freestyle with a time of 2:08.76.

Hannah Tonsmann then claimed first place in the 200-yard individual medley for BHS, with a winning time of 2:18.40 — more than 11 seconds in front of the second-place finisher from Blanchet.

Tonsmann also had another first later in the meet. She won the 100-yard freestyle in 56.15.

Bainbridge went 1-2 in diving, with Jackie Helmers nabbing first place with a finals score of 184.95, and teammate Bryn Tiernan right behind with 175.80 for second place.

Hannah Lee followed with a first in the 100-yard butterfly, winning in 1:05.83.

Blanchet forged wins in the 500-yard freestyle and the 200-yard freestyle relay, but Bainbridge answered with victories in the final three races of the meet.

Naomi Howard was first in the 100-yard backstroke in 1:04.46.

Zoey Ragan was second in the race for Bainbridge, with a time of 1:09.48.

Margaret Hayes had a state-championship qualifying time in the 100-yard breaststroke, winning the event in 1:07.44. The cutoff time for the 3A state championships is 1:09.10.

In the last race, the Spartan relay team of Tonsmann, Lee, Kimball and Howard also took first place.

The Spartans’ fabulous foursome won the event in 3:53.58.
