Lapeer High School vs Caro High School
85 101

On Thursday, 2/8, our team traveled up to Caro. We still had several swimmer still sick, resulting in only 18 of 28 swimming. Once again, swimmers were shifted around; however, they all adjusted to their events very well. This meet was also a different experience for most of our swimmers, as Caro has a 25 Meter pool. A Meter pool is 9% longer than our 25 yard pool; therefore, they were all swimming slightly longer than what they normally would. The other difference was the 500 Free race. Swimmers in the 500 Free actually swam 400 Meters (437 Yards).

This was definitely an exciting meet, as:
– The score kept seesawing back and forth
– All three divers achieved new personal best high scores
– Carter Cerny broke his 6-dive school record again making it 162.60
– Phenomenal races, especially in the 200 Free, 50 Free, 100 Fly and 100 Breast
– Very close relay races
– Several new personal best times achieved
* Denotes a new PB time or high score.

In the 200 Free race, Travis Ross and Kyle Martindale went head-to-head to catch Caro’s 1st place swimmer, Colby Sutton, with Ross being out-touched by only .42.

In the 50 Free race, Hunter Higgins out-touched Caro, taking 1st place. Grant Masterson swam a great race and finished in 4th after being out-touched by Caro with only .03 separating 3rd and 4th place.

In the 100 Fly, both Travis Ross and Jake Parson had outstanding swims with new PB! Ross finished 1st with Parsons in 2nd. Cassidy Sparks also scored points for our team with her 5th place finish.

In the 100 Breast, Kate Groulx swam her heart out, finishing in 1st place. She really made Caro’s swimmers work hard to try and catch her. This was the 1st time Kate swam 100 Breast in a meet for out team. Dylan Fuchs and Jay Moore also swam great races finished in 4th and 5th place.
