In just its second year of existence, the Tongie Tidal Waves swim team had its very first home meet Wednesday morning at Tonganoxie Water Park.

Although the Tidal Waves lost to the visiting Leavenworth Riptides in the dual, a number of Tongie swimmers enjoyed plenty of success at the event.

Among the Tidal Waves’ top performers were Holden DeGraff, David Falk, Abigail Frye, Gad Huseman, Marisa Kearns and Cameron Maughmer.

Frye (10 and under) and Kearns (8 and under) both finished first in multiple girls events. Frye was a winner in the butterfly, breaststroke, medley and backstroke, as well as the freestyle relay and the medley relay. Kearns won the freestyle and backstroke events.

DeGraff (10 and under), Falk (14 and under), Huseman (10 and under) and Maughmer (18 and under) all had multiple first-place finishes on the boys side. Falk won each of his individual events — freestyle, butterfly, breaststroke and medley — and Maughmer matched that feat, getting his victories in the freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and medley. Huseman won his freestyle, butterfly and medley races and DeGraff was first in the backstroke and breaststroke.

The Tidal Waves have another home meet this coming Wednesday, when they play host to Piper at 8 a.m.
