Easy stroke: Owls swim past competition in season opener


Seymour’s swim teams opened their seasons in grand style Tuesday night to coast past Madison.

The girls won all three relays and seven individual events for a 138-35 win, while the boys also won all three relays plus eight individual events to triumph 128-47.

Veteran Seymour coach Dave Boggs said he saw a lot of positives from his swimmers.

“We did a lot of good things,” he said. “I was a little concerned with all the new faces we had, inexperienced faces. We may be lacking in details, technique, but we swam far better than we expected.”

Boggs said he had both the boys and girls swim a lot of off events.

Individual winners for the girls were Sarah Montgomery in the 50 free, Alexa McKinney in the 100 free, Katie Turner in the 200 free and Libby Rohr in the 500 free.

Breanna Hammond won the diving, Elizabeth Hartman won the 100 back, Nastya Yakovleyva won the 200 individual medley, Mary Kate Pritchett won the 100 fly, and Bailee Wolfe won the 100 breast.

For the boys, Jake Vance won the 50 free, Isaiah Sexton the 100 free, Dalton Polley won the 200 free, Daniel Hartman won the individual medley, Skylar Cash won the 100 back, Steve Frohling won the 100 breast and Devin Ramsey won diving.

“It was a very good starting point tonight,” Boggs said. “We had a few lifetime bests tonight, but we swam off tonight a little bit. Madison is in a rebuilding process, more or less, and we really didn’t want to run the score up.

“We kind of backed off and tried some different things and tried a few things we thought we might use for sectionals, prepare people now for that.

“We have 53 right now, 33 girls and 20 boys. We had four relays for all the girls, and three on the boys.”

The Owls will be off until next Tuesday, when they host Jeffersonville.
