There are victories and there are blowouts. What the Jamestown girls' swimming team did on Thursday was the latter.
The Blue Jays won all 12 events as they crushed Wahpeton 143-35 at JHS Pool.
Erin Hart, Kylie Pfaff and Kamie Wagar each won two individual events, while Annie Hart, Alex Lind and Paige Peterson all had one. All three relay teams also won in convincing fashion to help close out the sweep.
"It was really fun to watch," said Jamestown coach Ben Smith. "Everybody really stepped it up. The girls really swam and dove with a lot of heart."
Erin Hart, who currently holds the best time in the state in the 100 backstroke, won the 500 freestyle and the 100 backstroke, and helped lead the 200 medley relay to victory by nearly five seconds over the second-place finishing team, which was also made up of Blue Jays.
Pfaff qualified for state in the 50 free after finishing the race in 28.09 seconds. She also topped the field in the 100 freestyle and helped lead the 400 freestyle relay to a first-place finish.
Wagar took both the 100 butterfly and headed a 1-2-3 Blue Jay finish in the 100 breaststroke. Annie Hart, who also won the 200 IM, finished second and Chesney Middaugh placed third with a state-qualifying time of 1:19.89.
Alex Lind also topped a 1-2-3 Blue Jay performance on the diving board with a score of 250.70. Abby Wanzek and Mercedes Westereng finished in second and third, respectively.
Jamestown also went 1-2-3 in the 50 free, 200 IM and the 500 free.
Karlie Marler joined Pfaff in qualifying for state in the 50 free after finishing just over one-tenth of a second behind (28.22).
"Those were really fun races to watch," Smith said. "The girls have been working really hard at those events and it was fun for the whole team to see all three girls qualify for state. Everybody was pretty excited for the them."
The Blue Jays return to action on Tuesday with a home dual against Mandan. Tuesday will also be "Senior Night," where all the Jamestown seniors will be honored for their devotion and leadership in the swimming program.
"It should be a tough test," said Smith. "They have just as many individuals qualified for state as us, so it should be a pretty good matchup."
