Hudson swept the boys and girls National Conference titles at the Suburban League Championships on Saturday at the University of Akron's Ocasek Natatorium.

The Hudson girls team won three relays and six of eight individual events to roll past second-place Brecksville 618 points to 441. The Hudson boys squeaked past runner-up Brecksville by just 4.5 points (464.5-460).

Copley won the girls American Conference title, and Kent Roosevelt took the boys crown.

Paige McCormick won the girls 200 and the 500-yard freestyle races for the Explorers. Teammate Giovanna Cappabianca won the 200-yard individual medley and the 100 butterfly, and Mackenzie DeWitt (50 freestyle) and Maddie Hannan (100 freestyle) also recorded wins for Hudson.

Hudson had a multiple winner in the boys races, as Jay Johnson was first in the 50 and 100 freestyles. Brecksville's Pete Krusinski (200 freestyle, 100 breaststroke) and Eric Chimes (200 IM, 500 freestyle) led the Bees to second place in the National Conference.

Led by multiple winners Rachel Fox (50, 100 freestyles) and Emma Canode (200 IM, 500 freestyle), the Copley girls edged Highland 332-318 for the American Conference title. Copley was second to the Rough Riders boys, but had a double winner in sophomore Joshua Hertz (200 IM, 100 breaststroke).
