And it certainly came out the way Evergreen coach Jeanne Godaire had hoped as the Cougars outswam Valor Christian to capture the championship. Evergreen scored 176 points to Valor Christian’s 158. Third-place Littleton accumulated 128. There were no individual events in this meet.
Evergreen got the waves going right from the start, winning the 200 medley relay with a time of 1:58.47 to beat Wheat Ridge, 2:01.48.
Evergreen won the 200 breaststroke relay, once again beating Wheat Ridge, as the Cougars swam 2:17.49 to the Farmers’ 2:29.37.
Two meet records were recorded during the competition with Valor Christian winning the 500 crescendo relay in 4:50.58 and Golden taking home top honors in the 200 backstroke relay with a time of 1:58.97.
Golden’s record was accomplished by Sabrina Sabadeanu, Nina Moreland, Quinn Cusack and Lauren White. In the process, the Demons defeated Evergreen’s 2:09.36.
“We are just trying to get better in every practice,” said Cusack. “You just want to win rather than just go for records and this is just a great feeling.”
White had two previous races before joining her record-setting teammates.
“I just gave it my all,” White said. “What happens, happens. I’m a freshman and I’m learning the ropes to follow my team and see what they have to say to help me.”
The time was also unexpected from Moreland and Sabadeanu.
“We were not expected to break the record,” said Moreland. “You just want to grow. I’m really proud how we have been able to build our team over the years.”
“I’m really proud of my teammates and we have worked hard to get where we are,” Sabadeanu said.
