Thursday evening our team went up against Caro in our 2nd HOME meet of the season. Flu bugs and 3 swimmers still recovering from sprained ankles couldn’t hold our team down. They all pushed through, swam hard and achieved more best times with many very impressive races.

Hunter Higgins came in 1st place for both his Individual events (100 Butterfly and 100 Breaststroke). He swam an impressive 1:02.83 (PR) in 100 Butterfly dropping -3.18. Higgins also pulled his weight in his 200 Medley (Groulx, Higgins, Martindale, Schultz) and 400 Free (Ross, Groulx, Martindale, Higgins) Relays helping his teammates to come in 1st place. Travis Ross also came in 1st in both of his Individual events (50 Free & 100 Free) and was very strong anchoring the 200 Free Relay and leading off in the 400 Free Relay. Kyle Martindale looked effortless as he swam his 200 and 500 Freestyle races taking 2nd in the 200 and 1st in the 500. Martindale is also a very strong member of his 200 Medley and 400 Free Relay teams. Both Kate Groulx and Joe Schults were fighting a flu bug, but you would have never know watching them easily slice through the water. Schultz took 2nd in both his individual events (50 & 500 Free) dropping -.34 in his 50 Free and an impressive -32.00 in the 500 Free. Groulx came in 3rd in her 100 Free dropping .93 and took 1st place in the 100 Back. Carter Cerny came in 2nd in both his Individual events 200 IM and 1 Meter Diving, breaking his school record again in 1 Meter Diving. Other swimmers with impressive time drops are Cassity Sparks -5.99 in 200 IM & 1.64 in 100 Fly; Jake Parsons -2.16 100 Fly; Morgan Turk -7.31 in 200 Free & -17.12 in 500 Free; Christian Miller – 14.59 in 100 Free & -5.73 in 100 Breast; Max DeCou – 13.42 in 100 Back and Kristen Kautz -30.08 in 100 Back. Dylan Fuchs swam the 100 Breast as exhibition for the 1st time and achieved a time of 1:29.33. I am excited to see what he does at Counties next week.

Next week is a very busy week for our team. We have our 3rd HOME meet of the season on Tuesday against Saginaw Heritage and the Genesee County Meet Thursday (Dive Prelims), Friday (Swim prelims) and Saturday (Swim & Dive Finals). Come on out and help cheer our team on.
