Tuesday night’s result for the Knob Hill Barracudas was the same as it’s been all summer.

The Barracudas played host to Augusta Country Club, coming away with the 393-252 win, running its record in the CSRA Summer League to 3-0.

“This year we have a good chance of coming out undefeated,” said coach Kristen Schlegel. “Our kids are stepping up, they’re swimming well, they’re practicing hard during the week and it’s showing up.”

To finish undefeated in the regular season, the Barracudas will have to get by Woodbridge (3-0) who they play host to with the Division 5 regular season title in the balance Tuesday night.

The Barracudas led by six points after the first 11 events, but pulled away as the meet progressed. Triple winners included Laura Wakefield, Brendon Akemon and Aidan McIntyre.

McIntyre had one person to top in the boys 15-18 50 meter backstroke, finishing before teammate Colten Mangione. It didn’t matter to McIntyre how many other swimmers were in the pool with him.

“It just depends on the mindset,” said McIntyre, who also won the 50 butterfly and the 100 individual medley. “If you go out there ready to do your best, it doesn’t matter who you’re going up against.”

Double winners for the Barracudas were Andrew Bryant, Lily Parish, Sydney Parish, Keaton Sadoski and Nina Sadoski.

Emma Stanley won the 9-10 girls 25 freestyle and then finished second to Abigail Sukowatey in the 25 breaststroke. Coming in second wasn’t disappointing, it just gave her incentive for the next time.

“It makes you go harder, try harder and makes you want to improve,” said Stanley. “It’s all really fun, I just like swimming.”

In other swim league action Tuesday night, Woodbridge defeated Augusta Jewish Community Center 373-291. Woodbridge triple winners were Brennan Day, Erin Day, Ellie Polhill, Levi Smith and Elijah Woods. Double winners were Anna Grace Lindler, Haley Rhodes and Garrett Singletary.

Springlakes beat Cambridge Stevens Pointe 447-200 and Jones Creek topped Farmington 433-337.
