WILMINGTON — Archmere earned a split with Tower Hill when the teams met in the pool on Jan. 4 at the Walnut Street YMCA in Wilmington. The Auks took the boys’ match, but the Hillers’ girls got a measure of revenge for Tower Hill. The final score for the boys was 83-81, while the girls finished 97-71.

Tower Hill won seven of the 11 events in the boys’ meet, but the Auks compensated with their depth. Blake Erkenbrecher and James Brinsfield of the Hillers were double winners. Erkenbrecher won the 200-yard freestyle and the 500 free, while Brinsfield took first in the 200-individual medley and the 100 backstroke.

On the girls’ side, Tower captured seven events and had a pair of double winners. Annika Jorgensen won the 200 free and the 100 back, while Phoebe Gray was first in the 200 IM and the 500 free.

Archmere (2-2 boys, 3-1 girls) swim against Salesianum and Ursuline Jan. 11 at 3:30 p.m. at the Fraim Boyx Club.

Tower Hill (0-4 boys, 3-1 girls) will meet Wilmington Friends on Jan. 9 at 3:30 p.m. at the Hicks Anderson Community Center.
