Powers Swim and Dive finished off the season with a big win over Mt. Pleasant at Alma College on Thursday. The highlight of the evening was junior Emily Snyder breaking the Powers school record for a 6-dive competition with a score of 246.25. Snyder took down the record of 241.60 set by Danielle Donaldson in 1982. Snyder is now looking to the post-season meets and the possibility of breaking the 11-dive competition record also set by Donaldson in 1982. The divers went 1-2-3 against Mt. Pleasant with juniors Halle Purcell and Jill Lorf taking 2nd and 3rd, respectively.
The Charger girls won nearly every event of the evening, with junior Abby Merz (200 IM, 100 Breast) and sophomore Lauren Taylor (200 Free, 100 Free) each clocking in first in both of their individual events. Other event winners include freshman Emily Bhagat (50 free),and junior Lara Wujciak (100 Fly). The 200 Medley Relay (Katelyn Iordanou, Abbie Britton, Hannah Erpelding, Emily Bhagat) and the 200 Free Relay (Wujciak, Taylor, Merz, Olivia Camara) also each took first place.
