FLINT — The perils of a varsity sports schedule are as numerous as they are varied, so when the Carman- Ainsworth/Flushing varsity boys’ swim and dive team found out the pool that Davison rents from Kearsley was already slated to host a different prep matchup all together last Thursday, the Cavaliers and Cardinals were fortunate enough to be able to simply move the event to Tuesday. That’s where the good fortune came to an end for Davison, though, because Carman-Ainsworth/Flushing once again put its depth to the test, a tactic that led the team to an impressive 97- 77 victory.
The difference in the contest for the Cavaliers was the standout performances it got from swimmers such as Evan Snyder, who won the 200 free in 2:04.74 and the 500 free in 5:38.49. Another key for Carman-Ainsworth was Pat Sharp with victories in the 50 free in :24.07 and the 100 breaststroke in 1:07.20, Brian Mendoza took the top spot in the diving competition with a score of 173.35 and Mike Johns won the 100 free in :53.86.
Another strength for the Cavs was their ability to take control of the relay events as Blake McDonald, Sharp, Johns and Nick Price were victorious in the 200 medley in 1:52.76, in the 200 free relay Sharp, Austin Bower, Kevin Borse and Johns came in first in 1:39.51 and clocking in at 3:57.62 to swipe the top slot in the 400 free relay were Jake Ziaya, Borse, Snyder and Price.
With all of their non-league matchups out of the way, Carman- Ainsworth/Flushing welcomes Powers for a Big Nine matchup today in preparation for the conference meet on Feb. 23 at Kearsley hosted by Davison.
