PRESCOTT VALLEY - For the first time in 11 years, the Bradshaw Mountain High girls' swim team knocked off Prescott High in the annual meet between the cross-town rivals Wednesday afternoon at Mountain Valley Splash.

Despite the fact that the area's recent rain and lightning storms cut the Bears' early-season practice sessions in half, the squad has been resilient.

Bradshaw's girls defeated the Badgers 103-67, while the PHS boys tallied the identical score in beating the Bears to split a meet that was rescheduled from last Tuesday because of inclement weather.

Bears coach Patti Eller said she's thrilled that her girls posted a big win for the program. In 2001, Bradshaw nipped Prescott by one point, but the Bears had not beaten the Badgers since.

"It's really nice. It just means that we're improving," she said. "If we had been in the water (more for practice), we may have done better."

BMHS won five events, including the medley relay, 200-yard freestyle, 50 free, 100 free and the 4x50 free relay.

Bears star senior Kirsten Van Horne finished first in the 200 free in a time of 2 minutes, 15.79 seconds, and first in the 100 free in 57.67 seconds.

"We just have pure excitement and happiness because we haven't had that much time in the water," Van Horne said. "We know if we can push ourselves this far right now with the very few practices we've had, just imagine us next year going to state with relays and more individual events."

Van Horne also helped guide Bradshaw to wins in the medley relay alongside teammates Katie Buckwalter, Kylie Wells and Danielle Kwan (2:09.43), and the 4x50 free relay with Breanna Hembree, Rachel Campbell and Emily Stoltz (1:58.06).

Nonetheless, Eller sees room for improvement.

"Times were slow," she said. "We're still lifting weights, we're still doing dry land, and we're putting in as much yardage as we can right now to try to get in shape in time to qualify by the last meet for state."

For the Badger girls, Toko Miller led the way, winning the 200 individual medley in 2:39 and the 100 breast in 1:20.37. Teammate McKenzie Lain was first in the 500 free (6:30.08) and the 100 back (1:14.79). In the relays, Miller, McKenzie and Meghan Lane, and Autumn Sierra won the 4x100 free in 4:17.72.

Prescott coach Brigid Bunch said she wasn't surprised with her girls' results.

"I knew they (Bears) were strong, I knew they had numbers," she said. "My girls' team is half what it used to be in numbers."

As for the boys, Prescott dominated the dual by notching 10 victories in 11 events. The Badgers won the medley relay, 200 freestyle, 200 IM, 50 free, 100 free, 500 free, 4x50 freestyle relay, 100 backstroke, 100 breaststroke and the 4x100 freestyle relay.

Grant Temple paced Prescott, winning the 200 free in 1 minute, 55.67 seconds, and the 500 free in 5:15.57. He also guided the Badgers to victory in the medley relay and 4x100 free relay with teammates Billy Barlow, Adam Schilperoort and Jaxton Peterson.

However, Schilperoort and Peterson were equally as impressive as Temple in the individual events.

Schilperoort registered wins in the 200 IM (2:19.92) and 100 breast (1:07.55), and Peterson was victorious in the 50 free (24.77) and 100 free (54.40).

"The plan was, from the beginning, for the guys to try to get at least first through third in every event, and we thought that would be able to get us to pull away from Bradshaw," Temple said. "And that's what happened."

Next up, the Badgers travel to Cottonwood today to tackle Mingus Union.

Bradshaw heads to the 10-team Yuma Invitational on Saturday.
