The Seymour boys swimming and diving team posted 12 wins in a regular season in back-to-back years Monday with a victory against visiting Providence.

The Owls have posted 12 wins three times, and it remains the highest total of victories in a season for the boys team.

Providence brought a shorthanded team of less than 10 swimmers to the meet, and the Owls dominated claiming first in every event.

Coach Dave Boggs said the meet helped his staff see if changes need to be made for the upcoming sectional.

“We looked for any last-minute surprises, and we might of had one tonight,” he said. “It’ our last meet between conference and sectionals. It’s nice to keep a little bit of a racing edge right now.”

In the 50 freestyle, the Owls took the top three spots led by Noah Bullard’s time of 23.39.

The Owls also took the top three in the 100 free, as Isaiah Sexton led the way with a time of 58.44.

Levi Pfaffenberger hit the final wall first, timing 1:59.76 for the 200 free.

Pfaffenberger added another first-place finish in the 100 breastroke, clocking 1:09.69.

Seymour’s Dalton Polley led the 200 individual medley in 2:27.81 in another Owls sweep.

Another top-three for the Owls came in the 100 backstroke, with Caleb O’Brien topping the competition in 1:03.29.

In the diving well, Devin Ramsey scored 196.50 and Jhonatan Barradas tallied 94.95 points.

The 200 free relay team of Barradas, Daniel Hartman, Dalton and Dillon Polley was first at 1:57.27, and Skyle Cash, Pfaffenberger, Steve Frohling and Sexton got gold in the 400 relay combining for 4:01.31.

In the 200 medley Relay, O’Brien, Bullard, Frohling and Donavan Gabbard were first with a time of 1:59.38.

The Owls are off until the Floyd Central sectional Feb. 12.

“We started tapering about two weeks ago,” Boggs said.

“They’re about midway through their taper. Their muscle fibers are healing, and we’re coming back. The tapering allows them to be a little flexible on their workouts. If they’re not feeling good we can have them back off a little bit, and they will be ready for sectional.
