The Clinton girls swim team defeated Davenport West 100-44 on Tuesday at home.
“It’s nice having our numbers that we have because we can fill a lot of positions that sometimes we wouldn’t have and we don’t even get those fifth-place points or those fourth-place points, and those make a big difference when you’ve got a team you’re competing against who’s close — just like last week with Tipton,” Clinton coach Albert Hayton said.
“Being able to fill three spots in each event is crucial, so that was good for us.”
For Clinton, the relay team of Sarah Hilgendorf, Molly Shannon, Jordyn Klinkhammer and Jayden Kissack won the 200-yard medley relay (2:11.36). Sarah Hilgendorf won the 200 freestyle (2:32.19) and the 100 freestyle (1:09.05). Kissack won the 200 individual medley (3:32.79). Shannon won the 50 freestyle (27.60) and the 500 freestyle (6:32.68). Jordyn Klinkhammer won the 100 butterfly (1:18.97) and the 100 breaststroke (1:27.13). The relay team of Shannon, Hilgendorf, Kissack and Jordyn Klinkhammer won the 400 freestyle relay (4:37.50).
