The Comets won 83-51 in boys and 89-76 in girls.

For Penn Manor (1-4 L-L Section One, 2-6 overall), the meet was about more than adding a couple wins to their records.

“Honestly, it was about capping off a season with hard work and a lot of focus on the seniors,” Penn Manor head coach Eric Urban said. “We had a season with 20 swimmers and with seniors that we’ve done a lot with this week.”

Brayden Clow was the only double winner for the Penn Manor boys. He took the 100-yard backstroke in 1:01.48 and the 100 freestyle in 51.58.

Penn Manor also won all the relays: Reen, Barry, Clow and Linares in 1:50.49 in the 200 medley; Barry, Linares, Gage Myers and Thomas in 1:43.63 in the 200 freestyle; and Clow, Reen, Myers and Thomas in 3:54.81 in the 400 freestyle.

Trevor Morgan won twice for McCaskey (0-5, 0-10). He took the 200 freestyle in 2:03.37 and the 100 butterfly in 1:04.28, both of the times season bests.

The Comet girls had two double winners. Kenzie Wolpert won the 100 freestyle in 1:00.15 and the 200 IM in 2:28.11. Meanwhile, Grace Bresch took the 50 freestyle with a 27.37 and the 100 butterfly with a 1:12.31.
