LYNCHBURG, Va. (WSET) - Peakland knew it wouldn't be easy.

Just 2 weeks ago, Peakland's swimmers edged the Hill City Dolphins by just 11 points to finish the Lynchburg Aquatic League regular season with a perfect 6-0 record.

So it's no surprise that on Saturday, the Otters found the Dolphins nipping at their heels. Trailing entering the relays, Hill City made up 26 points over the last 4 events, but found Peakland's lead too large to overcome, as the Otters claimed the LAL's "A" Meet title -- 512 to 497.5 -- over the Dolphins.

Three swimmers set new "A" Meet records. Hill City's Max Schonfelder broke a 38-year old record in the 9-10 Boys 25m Breaststroke, which was originally set by Nicky Salido of Peakland in 1979. Oakwood's Kelsey Childress broke her own record in the 15 & Over girls 50m back, while Hill City's Tara Enneking topped fellow Dolphin Alyssa Reed's record from last season, in the 15 & over girls 100 IM.

In addition, 11 swimmers earned "Triple Event Winner" honors.
