The Whippet Boys’ Swim Team faced a fierce Badger team on Tuesday, December 22, at Badger.
The Whippets’ lone win came from Devin Bazeley in the 200 Individual Medley. Devin was able to drop 7 seconds to finish in first and achieved a new time on the Top 10 All Time list; Devin also put in a strong performance in the 100 Breaststroke with a 5 second drop in time and is now 5th All Time in this event.
All of our Whippet swimmers posted best times and many of the swimmers tried out some new races.
Senior, Tony Aranda also had two solid races dropping 3 seconds in the 200 Freestyle and swam right on his season best time from the end of last year in the 500 Freestyle.
Wyatt Anderson had a tough combo tonight. Wyatt posted a best time in the 100 Breaststroke and had to immediately swim the leadoff spot in the 400 Freestyle Relay.
In the 50 Freestyle, Cole Schlicher and Tyler Arnett each dropped a second off their time with Jake Kuhlow also posting a best time. Cole Schlicher also took on the 500 Freestyle with great success, flipping all his turns and cruising in with a nice time. Tyler Arnett was our only Whippet to swim the 100 Butterfly and swam a season best 1:09.65. Jake Kuhlow raced the 100 Freestyle and posted an additional best time with a 3 second drop.
Keith Cameron swam two nice races, swimming right on his time in the 100 Freestyle and dropped 5 seconds in the 100 Backstroke.
Zach Tomomitsu also swam the 100 Backstroke and dropped 8 seconds.
Congratulations to our Whippets on some nice time drops!
