The Barracuda swim team hosted its second and final home meet of the season this past Friday at the Riverbank Community Pool, welcoming in their opponent, the Pirates of Patterson.

With only two remaining active teams of similar size in the region, the swim schedule included only two home and two away meets this season for the Barracudas, all with the Patterson squad. A pick-up meet against a Modesto team originally scheduled for this Friday has been canceled, so the Barracudas finish out their season next week, July 29, at Patterson.

Last week, the Riverbank team was pretty successful in its home pool. Although team totals were not reported, some individual times and places were available.

In the 10 and under 100-yard medley, Riverbank came in first. In the 100 IM for 11-12 year olds, Riverbank also placed first.

In the IM for 13-18 year olds, Ken Miyakawa was first with a time of 1:09.84, while John Nunnally came in second at 1:18.91.

For the 8 and under 25-yard butterfly, winner was Katherine Magana with a 26.85 time, and in the 9-10 year olds ‘fly, Nick Wilmont finished first at 18.5 seconds.

Also, 8 and under 25-yard backstroke saw Adrianna De Rollo come in first at 27.71. Gavin Guevara finished first in the 50-yard breaststroke, at 54.79, while John Nunnally won the 100-yard breaststroke at 1:26.78.

The 25-yard freestyle event was won by Katherine Magana at 21.16, in the 8 and under division.

The 50-yard freestyle race for 9-10 year olds was won by Nick Wilmont, with a 38.21 second finish, while Payton Moore Clapper placed second at 39.75 and Andrew Curtis finished in third place at 40.34 seconds.
