The Hannibal Hurricanes churned to victory Wednesday at the Hannibal YMCA in their second River Country Summer Swim League home meet.

Hannibal scored 2,028 points to lead the four-team field.

Twin Pikes YMCA was second (1,142), followed by the Jacksonville YMCA (517) and the Quincy Family YMCA (401). 

Leading the way for the Hurricanes was 10-year-old Nora Wiley, who swam to four personal records, including team records in the 200 individual medley (2:36.20), a six-second improvement, and the 500 freestyle (6:09.53), a 10-second drop. 

Wiley also recorded the fastest 200 breaststroke ever by a Hurricane 10-and-under (3:00.38), lopping 18 seconds off her previous time, and concluded the meet with a PR in her butterfly leg (32.31) of the 200 medley relay to pull her team into a lead it never relinquished.

Eleven-year-old Alana Lemon won the Hurricane Gargantuan Swim Award for dropping 15 seconds off her 100 backstroke (1:39.91) to take runner-up in that race.

Eli Wiley, 7 years old, secured the RelayBig Award with dramatic improvements in the 200 medley (swam the fly leg in 49.48, a nine-second drop) and 200 free (dropped three seconds to finish in 38.72) relays.
