Two of District 10′s veteran boys tennis coaches saw their schools win their 2014 openers this week.

Those victories also nudged them closer to career milestones.

The Warren Dragons, the district’s defending Class AA champions, returned to action with Saturday morning’s 7-1 non-region win over Olean (N.Y.) Their dual took place indoors at St. Bonaventure University’s Tripodi Athletic Center.

That victory nudged Warren coach Jeff Bartsch closer to the 250-victory plateau. Bartsch is currently 247-16 over 17 seasons in charge of the Dragons.

Earlier this week, McDowell’s debut resulted in a 5-0 shutout of Fairview at Pennbriar Athletic Club. That win pulled coach Richard Beck within six of 500 for his career.

Beck goes into the last week of March with a record of 494-151. He’s in his 45th season with the Trojans.

Lauren Barber defended as the state’s best Class AA female swimmer in the 100-yard breaststroke. The Wilmington junior, competing as an independent because her school has no pool or program, won back-to-back titles in that event with a championship-final time of 1:03.05.

Corry’s Brent Benedict was named the outstanding male swimmer at the conclusion of Saturday’s PIAA Class AA meet.

District 10 went 1-2 in the championship final of the boys’ 100-yard backstroke. Corry’s Brent Benedict, one day after becoming the Beavers’ first PIAA swimming champ of any kind in 20 years, added a second gold medal in his specialty. Benedict returned in PIAA record 48.69 seconds. Mercyhurst Prep rival Griffin Schaetzle was second at 49.86. Schaetzle sought to become the Lakers’ first male swimming champ at the state level.

Franklin senior Phil Emerson won the boys’ 100-yard freestyle for the third consecutive season with a time of 45.65 seconds. The gold medal was the sixth overall for the University of Kentucky recruit and fifth as an individual sprinter for the Knights. Emerson repeated as the state’s 50 free titlist Friday night.

Updates of District 10 entrants from Saturday’s PIAA Class AA swimming and diving meet at Bucknell University in Lewisburg. The top eight in each event will receive medals.

Because the media center is not immediately adjacent to Kinney Natatorium, updates will only be provided at the end of each preliminary and championship session. However, posts will be made as soon as possible if a district entrant places first or second in a championship race.

Wilmington junior Lauren Barber was the silver medalist to Courtney Harnish’s record-setting performance in the final of the girls’ 200-yard freestyle. Barber returned in 1:47.32, but was more than one second slower than the West York freshman. Harnish, who was seeded first going into Friday morning’s preliminaries, set a new PIAA standard with her time of 1:45.91.

The Franklin boys’ 200-yard freestyle relay, consisting of Douglas Merchbaker, Connor Virgile, Isaac Cooke and anchor Phil Emerson, combined for a second-place time of 1:27.97. District 11 Salisbury knocked off the Knights with a low time of 1:27.56.

Brent Benedict became Corry’s first PIAA swimming champion of any kind in 20 years with his victory in the boys’ 100-yard butterfly. Benedict’s time of 48.57 seconds was .01 off tying the state record set by York Suburban’s Kevin Marsteller in 2009.

Franklin sprinter Phil Emerson repeated as the boys’ 50-yard freestyle gold medalist. The University of Kentucky recruit went down and back in 20.61 seconds, only .04 away from tying the state record set by Daniel Gosek of Holy Ghost Prep in 2011.

Mercyhurst Prep’s Griffin Schaetzle (backstroke), John Mackowski (breaststroke), Joseph Swanson (butterfly) and Ryan Campbell (freestyle) were the silver medalists for the boys’ 200-yard medley relay (1:37.08). District 3 Trinity edged the Lakers with a time of 1:36.99 in the championship final.
