Pride girls use depth to dominate

The Leesville Road girls had seven first-place finishes Saturday, tallying a lopsided 720 points to claim the meet.

Behind Enloe was Sanderson with 281 for third. It was Leesville’s fourth consecutive Cap-8 win.

“We’ve been talking about the four-peat since the beginning of the season,” Pride coach Jack Rogers said. “They’ve been working hard. From top to bottom today, I think every single girls improved on their times. They picked a good day to swim their best.”

Leesville sophomore Grace Countie won in the 50-yard freestyle (23.36) and 100 back (57.30). She also anchored the 400-yard relay, which took first with a 3:39.31. The Pride swept the relays.

Ashley McCauley had victories in the 100-yard breaststroke (1:05.81) and the 200-yard IM (2:08.42). Elizabeth Gamble’s diving win added to the total.

“Teamwork is so easy with us. We all get along so well,” Countie said. “This does give us a boost of confidence. It’s kind of like a reassurance that we can do great things as a team.”
