Emily Moe brings in the finish win for Baker County during her team’s relay race.

Baker City athletes earned several first- and second-place finishes at a regional Special Olympics swim meet Sunday at Sam-O Swim Center in Baker City.

The Eastern Oregon regional meet included 16 swimmers from Baker City, La Grande, and the Pendleton/Hermiston area.

The meet was scheduled for Baker City after budget cuts forced officials to cancel the usual meet at Mount Hood Community College in Gresham that pits swimmers from Eastern Oregon against competitors from the west side.

Results for Baker City swimmers:

• Janet Stout, 1st, 25-yard backstroke, 26:53

• Emily Moe, 2nd, 25-yard backstroke, 33.83

• Caitlyn Calaway, 1st, 50-yard freestyle, 45.96

• Emily Moe, 2nd, 50-yard freestyle, 1:03.88

• Thomas Huntington, 1st, 50-yard freestyle, 32.67

• Thomas Huntington, 1st, 100-yard backstroke, 1:20.50
