The Okemos girls swimming and diving team won the CAAC Blue meet on Saturday, winning all three relays and five individual events.

The Chiefs finished with 469 points. St. Johns, who had beaten Okemos in a dual meet earlier in the season, took second with 397 points.

“We held a pretty comfortable lead most of the meet, but there were some really nice swims from all the teams,” Okemos coach Patrick Saucedo said. “There were a lot of good races. You’ve got to get the job done on Friday and our girls, they got their spots, their top eight spots, their top 16 spots and we had a good showing today.”

Senior Katie Dudley won the 100 and 200 freestyle races for the Chiefs to get 40 points individually. Dudley swam the 100 in 52.80 seconds and the 200 in 1:53.75 to get the victories.

Dudley also was on the winning 200 freestyle relay and 400 freestyle relay teams for Okemos.

Junior Alexandria Chow won the 100 breaststroke in a time of 1:09.52, freshman Sarah Williams won the 50 freestyle in a time of 25.33 seconds and senior Grace Kao had a pool record time of 59.49 seconds in the 100 backstroke.

Junior Alexandra Davis led St. Johns with a win in the 500 freestyle and a third place in the 200 freestyle.

“It was definitely motivational,” Saucedo said of seeing St. Johns again at the league meet following a dual defeat earlier in the season. “They knew that the competition was there and they wanted to make sure they kept their (conference champion) streak alive. It was definitely a huge motivator.”

DeWitt was third with 266 points. Rosalie Yockey won the 200 IM with a CAAC Blue meet record time of 2:08.06 and the 100 butterfly with a time of 57.88 seconds for the Panthers.

Holt followed DeWitt in fourth place. Jackson, Grand Ledge, Haslett and East Lansing rounded out the rest of the field.
