The Bruin swimmers headed to Bellmont for their first co-ed meet of the winter. The girls fell to Bellmont 126-49 to fall to 0-4. The boys dropped their season opener 121-47.
Zac Dudley won 50 Free and was 3rd in 100 Fly. Stephen McGahey won the 100 Breast. Claire Seelen won the 100 Fly and 100 Back. The 200 Boys Medley Relay team of Evan DuBois, Stephen McGahey, Robbie Gardner and Zac Dudley got 2nd. Bailey Cline and Riley Apple each had a couple of 3rd places in their individual events.
From Coach Hill, “This was the first meet for the boys team, so we’re still getting our new boys up to speed with competitive swimming. We have a lot of swimmers injured and/or very sore right now. Hopefully we can work through that and get faster. Our Senior boys showed up big tonight, as they should. It was a great start for Zac Dudley winning the 50, such a tough guy. He came right back just a few minutes later and went 3rd in the 100 Fly. Stephen’s win in the Breast is a huge boost for him. Another great double-win night for Claire Seelen. She’s such a great technical swimmer.”
The Bruins host Bluffton on Thursday, December 11 at 5:30pm.
