WARREN, NJ -- DeeDee Maizes, Rachel Maizes, and Erika Frazier each won two individual events and participated in two relay victories to lead Scotch Plains-Fanwood over Chatham, 102-68, at Morris-Union Jointure Pool in Warren.
DeeDee Maizes, committed to Cornell next year, won the 200 Freestyle (1:55.27) and 100 Freestyle (52.59), while her sister, Rachel, who is committed to Penn, took the 200 IM (2:11.82) and 100 Breast (1:06.11). Frazier finished first in the 100 Butterfly (58.27) and 100 Back (59.58) events. Scotch Plains-Fanwood won the meet's three relays: the 200 Medley, the 200 Freestyle and 400 Freestyle. 
In all, the Raiders won nine of the meet's 11 events. Chatham's individual victories came from Olivia Polemeni, who won the 50 Freestyle, and Sara Barrett, who took the 500 Freestyle.
