  • Super sophomore Josephine Marsh made a huge splash at the DIAA Swimming Championships Saturday, winning the 100-yard butterfly and placing second in the 100-yard backstroke and leading the Appoqunimink Jaguars girls’ team to a sixth-place finish.
    Marsh also swam on the sixth-place 200-yard medley relay team and 400-yard freestyle relay team, which also included juniors Tessa Hayman, Drew Sanclemente and freshman Kristina Newton.
    Sanclemente also took fifth in the 50-yard freestyle and eighth in the 100-yard freestyle, while Newton took eighth in the 100-yard butterfly. Junior Ana Games added an eighth-place diving finish, giving Appo 151 points for the meet, just five behind fifth-place St. Mark’s and two ahead of Cape Henlopen.
    St. Andrew’s finished 14th among girls’ teams. The Cardinals were led by sophomore Caroline Fry, who finished seventh in the 200-yard freestyle race and eighth in the 500-yard freestyle event. She also swam on the Cardinals’ eighth-place 400-yard relay team, along with freshman Hannah Beams, sophomore Alexandra Grusky and junior Carbery Campbell.
    St. Andrew’s fared better on the boys’ side of the competition, finishing in eighth place. Sophomore Alec Huang swam to a seventh-place finish in the 200-yard individual medley event. Huang also led a relay team that finished sixth in both the 200-yard and 400-yard freestyle events. The relay also featured sophomores Alexander Geiersbach, Jay Kang and junior Jay Jacobs.
