BELTON, Texas — A&M Consolidated swept the boys and girls team titles at the District 19-5A Swimming & Diving Championships Friday at the Roy & Jean Potts Belton Swim Center.


The Tiger girls amassed 215 points to defeat Brenham (120 points), Lake Belton, La Grange, Halletsville, Columbus and Robinson, while the boys team scored 177 points to outdistance Brenham (126), Lake Belton (100), Columbus and La Grange.


“I’m so proud of the team and what they accomplished,” second-year Tiger head coach Jenny Marquardt said. “This season has been a challenge and the team has overcome so much from August until now to get us here. To stand behind the podium and see both teams win as a unit filled my heart with joy. I could not be prouder.”


The girls team won nine of 11 races, including a sweep of all three relays, and had at least the top two finishers in four events. Kaitlyn Owens and Sam Poole both logged multiple individual wins with Owens taking the 100 backstroke and the 50 freestyle and Poole winning the 200 IM and the 100 breaststroke. Other Tiger girls tallying victories were Susie Smith in the 100 butterfly and Claire Riley in the 100 free.

The foursome of Owens, Maggie Whitten, Poole and Riley won the 200 medley relay in 1:51.71, the 200 free relay of Whitten, Smith, Poole and Brett Hyman touched first in 1:44.28 and the 400 free relay of Riley, Whitten, Hyman and Owens posted a winning time of 3:43.73.


The boys team won seven of 11 races, including a pair of relays. Leading the way with two wins was Ian Lindberg, who won the 200 free and the 100 back. Other Tigers winning races were Stone Ahrendt in the 100 fly, Brendan Owens in the 100 breast and Calvin Lindberg in the 200 IM.


The foursome of Ian Lindberg, Owens, Ahrendt and Daniel Wilson won the 200 medley relay in 1:45.11 and the quartet of Wilson, Ian and Calvin Lindberg and Ahrendt closed out the meet with a victory in the 400 free relay in 3:30.33.
