Baldwin’s boys and girls swim teams defeated Carrick in a meet on Tuesday. 

“It wasn’t really a competition because they were short on team members,” said junior Kassidy Rohland, who swam in the 200 freestyle, 100 breaststroke, and then the relays. 

“They didn’t keep scores in this match because Carrick is so much smaller than us,” in terms of team members, junior Evan Stokes said. 

Stokes, who swam in the 200 freestyle and the 100 backstroke, said he wasn’t feeling well but was still happy with his overall performance. 

“I did pretty well. I wasn’t feeling great, but I am happy with how I swam,” Stokes said. 

Stokes gave a shout out to sophomore Nathaniel McWilliams for his performance at the swim meet. 

“He had some really good swims,” Stokes said. “I think he won every single race he was in last night. He definitely did better than he has done before.” 

Both the girls and boys swimming team will have their next meet against Seton LaSalle on Tuesday at 6 p.m. at Baldwin.
