Davie’s upstart swim teams were at it again last week against North Davidson.

Logan White, Elliot Newsome, Earnhardt Harris, Logan Zuleger and Aiden Davis combined for 10 individual wins, which resulted in considerable excitement for the orange-and-black side for the third meet in a row.

The Lady War Eagles outscored visiting North 103-64 on Jan. 4. The Davie boys had a real challenge, but won just the same, 89-80.

White (200 IM at 2:37.96, 100 breast at 1:18.14) and Newsome (50 free at 29.78, 500 free at 6:39.98) grabbed two victories apiece to share the spotlight on the girls’ side.

Sarah Rajacich (100 butterfly at 1:15.95), Sophia Brady (100 free at 1:04.61) and Amber McCullough (100 back at 1:13.87) helped Davie claim first in 10 of 12 events.

All three relays went Davie’s way: McCullough, White, Newsome and Rajacich in the 200 medley at 2:10.45; McCullough, Lilli Seats, Brady and Rajacich in the 200 free at 2:01.48; and Newsome, Seats, Brady and White in the 400 free at 4:27.78.

Meanwhile, the Davie boys captured eight events, led by double winners Harris (200 free at 2:04.95, 100 butterfly at 56.67), Zuleger (200 IM at 2:29.16, 100 breast at 1:14.94) and Davis (100 free at 57.58, 100 back at 1:01.03).

Taking first in relays were Davis, Zuleger, Harris and Bryce Harnsberger (1:50.68 in the 200 medley) and Zuleger, Harnsberger, Austin Boswell and Harris (1:43.50 in the 200 free).
