D.H. Conley posted a sweep in its first swim meet back from winter break, scoring 225 points in the girls’ standings and 220 in the boys in a meet featuring New Bern, West Carteret and Croatan as the Vikings’ closest competitors.

Conley girls who won in relay events included Meredith Bullard, Abigail Burns, Brooke Despres, Ruth McGee, Faith Koesters and Lexi Blatt.

The Vikings took the top two spots in the 200 freestyle event, with Bullard (2:14.13) touching first and Jarianna Vasquez-Soto second. Another DHC top-two finish happened in the 100 breaststroke after a win by Despres in 1:18.02 and Koesters was second.

More individual winners were Burns in the 200 IM (2:18.49), McGee in the 100 free (57.49) and Despres in the 100 breaststroke (1:18.02).

The DHC boys posted six individual victories. 

Trevor Torres and Garrett Despres each won two individual events. Torres thrived in the freestyle, winning the 50 in 22.60 and the 100 in 48.18. Despres won the 500 free (5:06.09) and his victory in the 200 IM in 2:09.27 was followed by teammate Riley Brown in second at 2:11.27.

Conley’s other individual winners were Conner Dennison (200 free, 1:55.77) and Seth Tillery (100 butterfly, 56.99). Turner Cook, Jacob Bell and Brown swam in relay wins.
