— The Lakeside swim teams split Saturday’s dual meet against Chardon at Spire Institute.

The Lakeside boys took nine of eleven first-place finishes on senior night in a 112-12 victory.

First-place individual finishes by Chip Ranck in the 200-yard IM and 500-yard freestyle, Ethan Beitel in the 50-yard freestyle and 100-yard butterfly, Bel Howell in the 100-yard freestyle and breastroke, as well as domination in all relays fueled the Dragons (6-2).

Experience and depth were too much for the Lakeside girls with a 120-47 loss.

Malynda Russell came in first in the 100-yard butterfly with a time of 1:23.28 and had a close second-place finish in the 50-yard freestyle with a time of 28.90. Courtney Smith was third in the 200 freestyle and breastroke for the Dragons (2-6).
