Local Roundup: NU close at swim relays

Despite missing its top four athletes, the Nevada Union swimming team came close Saturday to winning the Fairfield High School Relays. The boys team finished second to Leland by 14 points, while the girls took fourth, 48 points behind the Leland girls squad.

“We did very well considering the swimmers we were missing,” Nevada Union coach John Sultan said. “The younger kids really stepped up and swam well.”

Five varsity relay teams – one girl, one boy and three co-ed teams – took first at the meet for the Miners.

The Miners host McClatchy in a dual meet at 4 p.m. Thursday.

First place finishes:

200 Butterfly – Caitlin Lee, Christina Pettinato, Shiloh Fish and Colleen Heauser, 1:58.68

400 Freestyle – Gabriel Ingersoll, Eric Wurster, Jordan Golnik and Jason Tilly, 3:33.00

400 Medley – Shanna Stefani, Nicholas Ingersoll, Heauser and Golnik, 4:15.75

200 Butterfly – Pettinato, Tilly, Fish and Kyle Virva, 1:53.39

The Nevada Union boys baseball team had no trouble Friday afternoon taking care of Kennedy, winning 14-7 in the Metro League matchup.

Mike Jiannino earned the win on the mound, walking seven and striking out five in five innings of work. Reliever Travis Custer came in to pitch the final two innings giving up zero hits and striking out three.

Cody Johnson was perfect at the plate going 4-for-4 with a double, while Matt Morse was 2-for-3 with a double and a triple. Tucker Colomb notched a triple as well.
