Tiger Sharks dominate South Dearborn


The Tiger Sharks swept (1-4) the Girls 12&U 50 free. Following Taylor were Rachael Koontz, Kylie Hostetler, and Sara Springmeyer. They also swept the Girls 12&U 50 free with Busto, Pfeifer, Grace Reiger, and Emma Luttel and Boys 18&U 50 free with Oesterling, Niles, and Spencer Kuehl.

In the Girls 10&U 50 back the Tiger Sharks posted the five fastest times with Taylor, Hostetler, Luttel, Abigayle Lydy, and Sydney Swartentruber. They also claimed the fastest three times in the boys 18&U 100 back with Oesterling, Kuehl, and Jake Buening.

The Girls 10&U 100 free was also dominated by Tiger Sharks taking 1-5. Following McLean was Taylor, Springmeyer, Ella Lowe, and Haley Keppel. In the Girls 12&U 100 free the Tiger Sharks went 1-2-3-4 with Pfeifer, Menkedick, Molli Hurley, and Emma Luttel. Both 18&U 100 free events were swept by Tiger Sharks with the girls being Stagge, Oesterling, and Ashley Koontz while the boys were Oesterling, Kuehl, and Andrew Schroeder. The Girls 12&U 100 IM was swept by Busto, Menedick, and Grace Reiger and the Boys 18&U by Oesterling, Niles, and Drew Reiger.

As for Relays, the Tiger Sharks won every single relay in the meet with the exception of the Boys 12&U medley and freestyle relays.

“All in all, our kids swam great,” said Hawkins. “We had 75 percent of our kids compete. That’s a solid number for an away meet at South Dearborn, and that’s how we won by such a large margin. That (participation), combined with some fast swimming equaled victory!”

The swim team returns to action Thursday (tonight) against Madison’s H2O swim team.
