Maddie Walker won four events and set two school records Wednesday to lead the Lansing Lions to a convincing victory in the Kaw Valley League swim meet.
Walker set new school marks in winning the 200 and 100 freestyle and was a member of two winning relay teams as the Lions tallied 150 points in the meet. Piper was second with 53 points.
“It’s exciting, it’s a great way to go out on my senior year,” Walker said.
The Lions celebrated as a team in the pool after the meet, and Lansing coach David Bresser joined them in the water.
“We went out and really swam well,” he said. “I’m so proud of the girls. From top to bottom, we swam really fast. They were out of their minds today.”
The 200 medley relay of Trinity Hall, Leah Wiegers, Darby Mance and Maggie Bell got things going for Lansing, winning in 2:04.66 before Walker won the 200 freestyle in 2:07.65.
Mance took first place in the 200 IM with a time of 2:36.12 before Walker won the 100 freestyle in 57.66.
Ryley Bullock won the 500 freestyle in 6:38.68 before the 200 freestyle relay team of Walker, Samantha Moburg, Alix Lawler and Hall won in 1:51.11.
Hall captured first place in the 100 backstroke in 1:03.73 and the 400 freestyle relay of Bell, Mance, Hailey Sundblom and Walker won in 4:12.73.
The Lions will now prepare for the state swim meet May 18-19 in Topeka.
