Easterling, Cape Elizabeth shine at swim championships

From staff reports

WESTBROOK – Greely senior Sarah Easterling wrote her name into the record books twice at the North Southwestern Swimming and Diving Championships on Tuesday night at Davan Pool, but it was Cape Elizabeth retaining the team title by seven points over the Rangers.

Easterling, who was named the meet's Outstanding Performer, erased a 1999 mark in the 100-yard freestyle with her time of 53.37 seconds and took down a 2008 mark in the 100 backstroke with 57.63.

Greely freshman Hwanhee Park (200 and 500 free) also won two events, as did Deering senior Genevieve Worthley (200 individual medley and 100 breast).
