Valley Sports Report
TOWANDA — Seniors Jillian Shay and Kayla Hughey each recorded four second-place finishes to pace Sayre’s efforts in a 60-27 loss to Shamokin here Saturday afternoon in non-league girls swim action.
Shay finished second in the 200-yard IM in a district-qualifying time of 2:39.1. She also finished second in the 100-yard freestyle in a personal-best and district-qualifying time of 1:01.08.
Hughey finished second in the 50-yard freestyle in a time of 29.34 seconds, and freshman Elizabeth Boyle was fourth with a personal-best time of 33.16 seconds.
Hughey also finished second in the 100-yard backstroke in a personal-best time of 1:15.83, and senior Jordyn Maxim was third in 1:39.28.
“The backstroke is not a typical event for Kayla, and she was just shy of qualifying for districts,” said Sayre coach Carrie Wright. “We will be looking to pursue that qualifying time in the next few meets.”
Freshman Elizabeth Boyle finished second in the 200-yard freestyle in a personal-best time of 2:46.99, and freshman Ella Chilson was third in 3:37.72.
