LARGO -- On one side of the argument Saturday, the longer Jesuit's Kris Wiebeck was in the water, the less time he spent in the chilly air at Southwest Recreation Center.
On the other side, the quicker he swam his anchor leg in the last race of the night, the sooner he could play his leading role in the dousing of Gatorade on Tigers coach Bill Schaffer.
The Tigers earned 413 points at the Class A, District 6 meet to win their second consecutive title while Berkeley Prep took the girls meet with 361 points.
Wiebeck, one of the best prep swimmer in the bay area, posted impressive times and placed first in the 200-yard freestyle and 100-yard backstroke.
Adam Lynch, Brad Perez and Ben Sheridan took firsts in the 200-yard medley relay as did the 400-yard freestyle relay of Josh Cohen, Perez and Sheridan.
Wiebeck swam lead and anchor legs, respectively, for the winning relay teams. Sheridan finished first in 200-yard individual medley, rounding out Jesuit's performance.
"I did all right. But as a team, we did awesome," Wiebeck said. "I have a lot more left for states, and I hope to put a good foot forward and swim fast times there."
Berkeley Prep finished first in six girls events, beating Academy of the Holy Names by 56 points.
Academy of the Holy Names placed first in just one girls event, the 200-yard medley relay of Erica Scicchitano, Amanda Von Thron, Stephanie Tarr and Kristin Zwolak, but earned several third and fourth-place finishes that gained it a runner-up trophy.
Berkeley's Kristin Rayhack took first place in the girls 1-meter diving with 434.90 points, putting her just over Lauren Permuy of Osceola who was at 433.05.
Clearwater Central Catholic was the lone Pinellas representative in the girls top six with 227 points.
"We had a couple of swimmers lost to academic reasons, but we had a lot of people that came in and did some good things for us," CCC coach Cory Kephart said.
Cara Ewing won the 200-yard individual medley, and Meghan Maccurrach won the 100-yard butterfly for CCC.
Just two points separated the other two Pinellas teams at the meet, Shorecrest and Osceola at seventh and eighth place, respectively. Admiral Farragut Academy's Nicole Margaritondo won the 200 and 500-yard freestyle.
The Shorecrest boys beat Berkeley by five 5 points for the runner-up spot, 128 points behind Jesuit. Tampa Prep's Chris Colwill took the boys diving.
