The Lady Pirates girls, who are tapering off in preparation for the postseason, won two of three relays. Morgan Stagge, Molly Oesterling, Abby Bausback, Bri Stagge combined in the winning 200 medley (2:09.38) and the 200 freestyle (1:52.10).

Kyle Howard in the 1-meter diving placed third with a score of 100.85.

The 200 medley relay (Oesterling, Brady Niles, Dashiell, senior Justin Starkey in 1:56.80) and the 200 free relay (1:41.65) both finished second.

Hawkins applauded Niles and Oesterling for getting the relays off to a full-body length lead before the Olympian quartet came back and won it.

“Brady and Nick are swimming so well,” said Hawkins. “We couldn’t hold on to it. We just need a couple more guys to step up. We’re getting there.”

Niles was second in the 100-yard freestyle (56.41) and third in the 100 breaststroke (1:14.78).

Kuehl was third in the 100 back in 1:11.65, a drop of four to five seconds.

“Spencer has really started to figure it out,” said Hawkins of Kuehl’s progress. Hawkins also noted the improvements of Jacob Buening, who is swimming for the first time.

“He’s starting to figure out what it takes at this sport,” he said. “The big drops tonight are good to see.”

Starkey was fifth in the 100 free (1:01.11) and Todd Overmyer was sixth in 1:06.68.

Drew Reiger was third in the 200 free (2:15.05) and fourth in the 500 free in 6:03.21. Andrew Schroeder was third in the 100 fly in 1:15.53 and fourth in the 200 IM in 2:45.64. Buening was fifth in the 200 free in 51.97.

The boys 400 free relay of Drew Reiger, Andrew Schroeder, Todd Overmyer and Spencer Kuehl, clocked a 4:29.73 for third place.
