Carl Albert swimmers had to wait a little longer to celebrate their seniors.

The team planned to recognize their seniors on Jan. 4, but a scheduling conflict pushed it back until last week.

The wait was worth it as Carl Albert won 12 events and swept the meet at the Edmond Schools Aquatic Center on Jan. 8.
Carl Albert’s boys took first place with 644 points followed by Yukon (319) and Duncan (305). The CAHS girls beat Yukon by a seven-point margin 475-468 for the title. Fort Gibson was third with 313.

The Carl Albert boys swept the three relays, while seniors Everett Ryan, Ben Sutterfield, Shane McClung, Mason Corey and Jackson Lorenz won individual events.
Ryan took first in the 200 freestyle with a time of 2:02.75.

Sutterfield was a winner in the 50 freestyle in 23.73 seconds, while teammates Owen Ramirez and Jackson Bales were second and third. He also finished second in the 100 backstroke.

Del City’s Tyler Townsend came in second in the 100 butterfly and fourth in the 200 IM.

In the 200 medley relay, Corey, Wilcox, Ridge Thornton and Sutterfield took first in 1:49.97. The 200 freestyle relay team of McClung, Sutterfield, Ramirez and Bales won in 1:35.54. And Ryan, Lorenz, Ramirez and McClung closed out the meet with a win in the 400 freestyle relay (3:38.35).

The Lady Titans won the 200 freestyle relay with Helen Hammond, Brooklyn Jones, Hailey Hunt and Charlotte Peters finishing in 1:56.42. Carl Albert swam second in the other two relays.
