WILMINGTON – As the girls from Archmere and St. Mark’s lined up for the 200-yard freestyle relay, the final event of their dual swimming meet on Jan. 24, the results of the meet hung in the balance. If Archmere could take first and second, the Auks would win the meet. If not, the Spartans would go home victorious.

Well, Archmere’s quartet of Lillian Quinn, Emily Lugg, Sarah Mousley and Chelsey Liu did what they had to do, winning the event. But St. Mark’s finished comfortably in second place, and a third-place showing by Archmere was not enough. The Spartans squeaked out the victory, 85.5-84.5, at the Walnut Street YMCA, snapping a two-meet losing streak and handing the Auks their first loss of the season. Read more »
