Saturday, the duo, along with an equally-impressive effort from their teammates, helped the Cougars to a fourth-place team finish at the Mid-Penn Conference Swimming Championships at Cumberland Valley High School.
Schreckengast and Hess both turned in four top-10 finishes at the meet, two of which were top-five efforts in a pair of relays.
Schreckengast and Hess teamed up with Kylie Huffman and Breanna Purnell to finish second in the 200-yard medley relay in a time of 1:52.24. A pair of Hershey teams finished around them, with the Trojan "A" squad posting a winning time of 1:49.94, while the "B" group was edged at the wall by the Cougars in 1:53.67.
Schreckengast and Hess also worked with Peyten Lyons and Purnell to take fifth in the 400 freestyle relay in a time of 3:46.02.
Individually, Schreckengast took fourth in the 100 backstroke in 1:01.10 and ninth in the 100 freestyle in 56.12. Meanwhile, Hess was fourth in the 100 butterfly (1:00.20) and eighth in the 200 individual medley (2:19.23).
Purnell also turned in a top-10 effort in the 200 IM by placing sixth - two spots ahead of Hess - in 2:17.80. Lyons came back to swim to an eighth-place time in the 100 butterfly in 1:02.16, and Huffman was 10th in the 100 breaststroke in 1:12.51.
On the boys' side, the Cougars took 13th among the 22 represented teams, an effort that was led by Danny Tunitis, who was seventh in the 500 freestyle in 5:01.39.
Hershey swept both of the team titles with easy victories over State College (girls, 599.5-278) and Cumberland Valley (boys, 606-379).
