Ridgley, a gritty 17 year old, scored in six events while racking up her 33 points. She won both the girls 15-18 50 free and 50 fly and placed second in the 200 free, 100 free and 50 back. With her third place medal in the 50 breaststroke, Ridgley scored in four different stroke events.
Hannah Martin chipped in 13 points in the same age bracket, and Carter Huffmaster led the Thrashers on the boys' side, scoring 16 in the 15-18 division. He won a gold medal in the 50 fly. Kurran Blamey scored 12 points, and Tyler Bass scored 8 in the boys 15-18 group.
"If you look at the results, it was truly a team effort as our relays absolutely dominated the weekend," said WaterThrashers Coach Christin Janssen. "Twelve of our 13 relays achieved best times, and we won four first places and three seconds, and even our 'B' relays got up into the second, third and fourth places.
"What really helped us was when our 8-and-under boys took first in both of their relays for the weekend and the girls took second. Seeing our older kids leading and our younger swimmers stepping up and joining in the battle for points made me so proud. I knew it was going to be an awesome weekend for our kids."
Janssen said every WaterThrasher on the team helped contribute to the championship.
"They should all be very proud of how hard they worked this summer and how they helped each other become stronger, so we could achieve this goal that we have been working toward since last year," said Janssen.
