NEW KINGSTOWN - It was a rough Tuesday for Chambersburg’s swimming teams, which managed only three total victories in a Mid Penn Commonwealth Division sweep at the hands of Cumberland Valley.

The boys were defeated 119-61, while the girls lost 142-41.

“We had a good many season-best times on the girls side, but we didn’t win a whole lot of events overall,” Trojan coach Chad White said.

Ashlyn Ellis was the only victor for the Lady Trojans (1-3, 0-2 MPC). She earned a victory in the 200 freestyle with a time of 2:08.79.

The boys (2-2, 0-2 MPC) did only slightly better, finishing with a pair of wins. Nick Cover racked up 257.85 points for the win in the diving event, and Jacob Greenwood won the 200 free in 1:50.77.

Diving coach Ryan Crider said, "His strongest dive of the night was a back 1 1/2 somersault with a 1 1/2 twist. He got 50 points on that one."

“The highlight of the meet was definitely the 400 freestyle relay,” White said. “Throughout the entire meet, we seemed a little tired overall and not putting up as fast of times as we did last week. But the 400 relay really came together and put up a time that was a season best by five seconds.”

In the 400 relay, Avery Barley, Andrew Leeper, Greenwood and Julian Chance captured second in 3:21.23.
