South Medford couldn't overhaul Roseburg in Southwest Conference boys and girls swimming Saturday, but the Panthers indicated they've closed the gap against one of the perennially strong programs in the state.

The Panthers set school records in two boys events in a 92-78 loss at the Rogue Valley Family YMCA, while the Roseburg girls posted a 96-74 triumph.

"The whole meet we were neck and neck," said South coach Doug Stewart. "There were times when we were ahead and times they led. The kids swam well and stayed with them. It was a really good indicator that we could do pretty well at districts."

The Roseburg girls are considered the top SWC team, while the Indians' boys are likely second to South Eugene, said Stewart.

The boys 200-yard medley relay team of Ryken Robbins, Lucas Goossens, Aaron Ghiglieri and Clark Snyder shattered the school record set by last year's team. The Panthers placed second in 1:43.88 to Roseburg's 1:42.33. The old South mark was 1:49.39.

Snyder, in the freestyle, and Ghiglieri, in the butterfly, were particularly strong. Robbins swam the backstroke and Goossens the breaststroke.

The quartet also won the 400 free relay by nearly half a minute.

The other school mark was by Snyder, who broke his own 100 fly mark with a winning 55.44-second clocking. The record was 56.07.

Ghiglieri also breezed to victories in the 50 and 100 frees, and Snyder added a victory in the 200 free. Robbins nabbed an individual win, taking the 100 back in an impressive time of 58.68.

In the girls meet, freshman Sarah Reierson had a part in three of South's four victories. She won the 100 back and 200 individual medley and was on both relays.

Reierson barely missed the 12-year-old school mark in the 100 back. Her winning time of 1:00.36 was three-hundredths of a second off the mark.

Jenna Cooper captured the 100 fly for the Panthers.
