Homer boys take Kenai Invite
The Homer boys swimming and diving team earned 99 points and first place at the Kenai Invitational  Friday and Saturday Kenai Central High School.
Homer girls were fifth with 36 points.
Lady Mariner junior Jasmine Lewis scored 171.95 points to take the top spot in diving. Lewis said she was “OK” with her dives.
“They definitely needed some major improvement,” she said. “I hope by the next meet, I can nail my dives without major flaws.”
Teammate Katherine Dolma dived to a second-place finish with 149.65 points.
Homer divers Brian Rowe and Kaec Brinster finished third and fourth in their competition. Rowe said he knows he can do better in upcoming meets.
“My dives can use improvement, and I’m also planning to add more dives to my list,” Rowe explained. “This meet was super important for Kaec and I, not only because it was our first 11-dive meet, but also because a lot of other coaches gave us tips that will help us out in the long run.”
The Nagle Brothers again led the team, with each picking up a first-place finish.
James Nagle won the 100-yard butterfly in 56.58 seconds, Remi took the 200 individual medley in 2:19.86, and Mark nabbed the top spot in the 500 freestyle with a time of 5:28.54.
Homer boys also took first in the 400 freestyle relay.
“I’m feeling great about the races in Kenai,” Remi Nagle said. “I dropped a lot of time and scored points for our team.”
Mark Nagle said he enjoyed the meet and was very happy with his consistent splits in the 500 freestyle. He also swims a leg in both the 200 medley and 400 freestyle relays.
“I swam the breaststroke in the medley, which I am never excited to swim,” he said. “I had an all right time, I guess. But in the 400 free, I got a better time than my brother James; and we are very competitive.”
Remi said the Kenai meet really got him motivated to do better in practice.
“It made me realize how training hard really can result in great improvement,” he said.
