Mount Desert Island—The GSA boys and girls varsity swim teams raced Mount Desert Island December 12.

Without having swimmers compete in all events, the Class B Eagles have difficulty competing for points but still shine in individual events.

Ava Sealander placed first in the 100 yard butterfly, and Maya Pelletier took first in the 500 yard freestyle events, but, as a team, the girls fell hard in points, 121-53, against MDI, which has carried the state title home in 2011, 2103 and 2014.

The boys grabbed a few thirds, with Jeremiah Scheff in the 100 yard freestyle, Evan Soukup in the 100 yard backstroke, Alex Wang in the 100 yard breaststroke and Alex Yap in the 50 yard freestyle. The final team score was 140-26.
