The Mishawaka Swimmers & Divers took home a double victory, with both boys’ and girls’ teams winning over the Marian Knights. The meet started off with a strong showing from our divers, who are getting ready for the first 11-dive meet of the season at the Washington Dive Invite. The swimming events were characterized by close races and dozens of personal records. The Marian boys’ 200 Medley relay eeked out a victory by less than half a second, but Mishawaka answered by winning the next five events, and 15 of 24 overall. Senior Emma Halicki took first place in the 200 freestyle – on her birthday! Senior Courtney Brothers finished strong in the same race, chasing down the girl next to her to tie for second. A few races later, Sophomore Xochitl Soto had a similarly strong finish to edge out her opponent, by only 0.11 seconds in the 200 IM, securing a 1-2 finish behind Sophomore teammate Lilly Wilson. There were also some close races between teammates. Senior Jeremiah Bowerman took first place in the 200 freestyle, a half second ahead of Junior teammate Mark Crooks. Crooks got his payback later in the meet, however, edging out Bowerman by less than two tenths of a second to take second place in the 100 freestyle. Senior Ryan Watt had a monster fourth lap in the same race, coming from behind for a huge personal best time and securing the 2-3-4 finish in the event. Other event winners include:
Senior Eric Arseneau – 200 IM
