WELLSVILLE – There’s one thing that the Lady Sea Lions have yet to do this season – find the loss column. Wellsville has been absolutely dominant through the first three weeks of the season, establishing a 4-0 record after their latest win came in Hornell.

They made their return home for two straight meets with Wayland-Cohocton in town on Tuesday. Like every other meet so far, they continued their dominance in the water.

Wellsville was red hot across the board, scoring seven total victories, including a pair of relay wins, fueling a 97-67 victory over the visiting Lady Sea Eagles to move to a big 5-0 start on the year.

“Tonight was a good, solid win. The girls tested themselves in new events, and produced good times. The younger swimmers are very impressive. They have been to Sectionals as a spectator, now they are swimming at that meet,” said Wellsville coach Steve Hand. “Our record at the end of the year will be what it is. Our focus is the league meet and sectionals. Each year, the team gets bigger and better. Coach Joe (Mariotti) and myself could not be happier for this team.”

Lauren Staba led the way for the Sea Lions (5-0), as she picked up a pair of individual wins, both coming in the second half of the meet with her first in the 100 freestyle (1:00.4), and her last coming in the 100 backstroke (1:09.0). Staba also swam the second leg in the team’s winning 200 medley relay squad alongside Taylor Hurd, Hayden Waldon and Emma Kinnicutt at 2:12-flat.

Waldon and Kinnicutt were also individual winners for Wellsville, as they added back-to-back wins in the 200 individual medley (2:41.5) and 50 freestyle (27.3) respectively. Gracie Middaugh placed first in the 100 butterfly (1:23.2). Wellsville also netted a 200 freestyle relay victory (2:00.0).

Wayland-Cohocton was led by Kendall Allen, who was part of two victories for the Sea Eagles, recording her first in the 100 breaststroke, and later, swimming the third leg of the team’s winning 400 freestyle relay squad (4:50.0). Evyn Meldrum recorded two wins for the visitors, placing first in the 200 freestyle (2:14.4) and the 500 freestyle (6:02.7).

The Lady Sea Lions are back in action Thursday evening, as they look to go 6-0 in the water with Bath-Haverling in town.
