VERGENNES — The host Vergennes Champs swim team used their greater depth to pull away from the Middlebury Panthers on Thursday, 277.5-172.5, in the Champlain Valley Swim League opener for the county teams and friendly rivals.
In contested individual races in the Vergennes city pool, the Champs held just a 20-19 edge in first-place finishes, while another race resulted in a tie. But the host team not only earned more second- and third-place points, but also dominated the relays.
