SWIMMING: North Penn sweeps past Souderton

For Montgomery Media / MARK C. PSORAS North Penn's Tara Rogers swims the 500 freestyle during Friday's Suburban One Continental Conference meet against Souderton.
Fueled by their longstanding rivalry with Souderton Area and powered by phenomenal swims in just about every event, the North Penn boys and girls swimming and diving teams earned a pair of convincing wins over the Big Red at a packed Souderton Natatorium Friday afternoon.

The Knights won 106-80 over Souderton and the Maidens were equally impressive, coming out with a 106-75 victory, as both North Penn squads held off a fierce challenge from Souderton in a battle for first place in the Suburban One’s Continental Conference.

"We were ready to go," said Knights’ senior Jack Morris, a four-event winner on Friday. "I think everyone was prepared for this meet - we knew it was going to be a tough meet. And we were ready for it."

Morris was a big part of the Knights’ success, touching first in the 200 freestyle and the 100 butterfly as well as leading off the winning 200 freestyle and 400 freestyle relays. The 400 freestyle relay team of Morris, Spencer Collopy, Liam Kelly and Thanas Kountroubis finished things off by swimming to a pool-record time of 3:17.68. It took these kinds of swims to overcome a tremendous effort by Souderton.
