CVC swim championships claimed on Saturday

BEACHWOOD–Chagrin Falls, Beachwood, Hawken, and Perry each claimed a Chagrin Valley Conference swimming and diving championship on Saturday at Beachwood High School.

All four defended titles won last winter.

The Tigers’ boys’ team repeated as the Chagrin Division champion while Beachwood defended its Valley Division crown.

In the girls’ competition, Hawken won the Chagrin Division title and Perry won back-to-back titles in the Valley Division.

The CVC championships began on Friday with the diving competition.

Chagrin Falls’ Samantha Holtz won her third straight CVC diving championship title, while Orange’s Samuel Williams won the boys’ event.

“Tonight’s meet was absolutely incredible,” said Holtz, who finished with 493 points. “I got to dive with great girls; it’s always lovely competing against them. (I’m) glad to be back here for my third year at the CVC conference meet.”

Holtz, who finished fourth in the state last year is excited about the postseason.

“I love competing at both districts and hopefully if I make it to states this year, competing there,” she said.

Hawken’s Christianna Reieneke placed second with 336 ½ points, Orange’s Shannon Ahearn finished third with 296.9, Beachwood’s Nina Mayers was fourth with 272.85, and Orange’s Sophia Stepenayan rounded out the top five with 217.3 points.

Williams won the boys’ diving event with 260 ¼ points.

“It went pretty well,” Williams said. “Pretty high standards in the beginning, but as the meet went on it got more and more chill. Everybody tried their best and did some pretty good dives.”

Orange’s Zane Jacobs finished second with a score of 226.7.
