Xavier swimmers and divers defeat Pinnacle

Xavier Prep coaches Jenny James and Mark Rankin and their swimmers were all smiles as the team earned a victory over visiting Phoenix Pinnacle on Sept. 6 (photos by Sr. Lynn Winsor).
Xavier Prep’s swimmers and divers rebounded nicely from a season-opening setback to Scottsdale Chaparral with a decisive 131-55 victory over Phoenix Pinnacle on Sept. 6 in the Gators’ first home meet at the Brophy Aquatics Center.

Xavier had two individual swimmers each win a pair of events.

They were sophomore Mia Rankin (200-yard freestyle and 100 breaststroke) and junior Maddie Wright (50 freestyle and 500 free).

Other swimmers earning wins were junior Vica Dow (100 backstroke), freshman Gracie Munk (200 individual medley) and sophomore Pao Guerra (100 free).
Xavier and Pinnacle swimmers are about to hit the water.
In addition, senior diver Alyssa Largay compiled her personal-best points total with 261 to win her event.

Largay will be back in action on Wednesday (Sept. 12) with the diving portion of the annual Wolves Classic hosted by Chandler High. The diving event begins at 9:30 a.m.

The swimming portion of the Wolves Classic will be held on Saturday (Sept. 15), beginning at 8:30 a.m.

In between the two Wolves Classic days, Xavier will participate in a meet against Mesa Mountain View on Thursday (Sept. 13) at the Kino Aquatic Center in Mesa. That event starts at 4 p.m.
