Duncan boys win home swim meet

DUNCAN — Though they are still in the process of shedding rust, and perhaps some Christmas ham, the Duncan Demons put together a strong showing in their first swim meet back from winter break.

The Demons took first in seven events Tuesday as they played the part of ungracious hosts to Kingfisher and Heritage Hall, easily winning the meet.

The Duncan girls, meanwhile, finished third.

“Overall, I was pleased with our effort in our first meet since Christmas,” Duncan coach Andrew Bowers said. “We are still trying to get back to where we were before Christmas and building towards Conference and State. The boys’ team winning the meet is a big boost to their confidence and will hopefully carry over to our next meet.”

Damon Demar had a strong day for Duncan, winning the 50-meter freestyle, placing second in the 100 free and helping the 200 medley and 200 free relay teams take first. Davon Demar, meanwhile, was third in the 50 free, fourth in the 100 free and a member of the first-place 400 free relay team.

“I thought that Damon and Davon Demar swam extremely well,” Bowers said. They both had their best time of the year in the 50 free.”

Charles Espinola won the 100 butterfly, while Mason Lang won the 100 backstroke and the two teamed up to help the 200 medley relay team win by 29 seconds. Brennan DeHart was also a member of the 200 medley and 200 free relay teams.

Jill Baker was the star of the Duncan girls’ team as she took second in the 50 free and 100 free.

“Jill Baker swam well,” Bowers said. “Savanna Swor had her best meet of the year coming in fourth in the 100 free.”

Brittany Boles, Marlow’s lone swimmer, placed second in the 100 backstroke and third in the 50 free.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
