The Whippets’ triple dual meet on Tuesday, January 5th, resulted in one win and one loss. The Whippets were able to defeat Prairie School/St. Cats, but ended up losing to Jefferson/Cambridge. Two first year swimmers really had some impressive swims. Carter Schepp dropped 15 seconds in the 100 Breaststroke, while teammate Jake Kuhlow dropped an impressive 22 seconds in the 100 Backstroke. Those are huge time drops!
Devin Bazeley earned wins in both the 200 IM and 100 Butterfly against both teams, while Tyler Arnett finished 1st in the 500 Freestyle against both teams and beat all of the Jefferson swimmers in the 200 Freestyle.

The season is starting to wind down with only one dual meet left before the Championship season. It is great to see each of the swimmers getting stronger.
