Seymour’s swim teams split meets with Columbus East at the SHS pool Tuesday night.

The Seymour boys won 106-80 to improve to 11-2, while East won the girls meet 103-82, leaving Seymour with a record of 10-3.

It was senior night with all of the Seymour seniors and their parents being introduced before the meet.

Owls coach Dave Boggs said he was glad to see the big crowd.

“Two years ago against East, we had an overflow crowd, and tonight, we were pretty much the same way,” he said. “It’s really great for the kids to have that kind of support. Everyone was making a lot of noise. It was another fun meet with East.”

The boys meet was close through eight events, as each team had won four events up to that point before the Owls won the final five events.

Dalton Polley was a double winner for the Seymour boys, winning the 200 free and 500 free.

“We went with our best lineup,” Boggs said. “We swam off as much as we could and used all the data we have and came up with our best lineup and go from there.”

Marcegui Vasquez captured Seymour’s only first in the girls meet by winning the 500 free.

Boggs said the girls responded well coming back from the conference meet Tuesday at Floyd Central.

“It was a conference foe, and I was a little afraid of a letdown from conference,” he said. “The times were a little bit off on some, but some had lifetime bests. It was kind of a yo-yo effect in some ways as far as the times.

“The one thing we all liked tonight was they raced. Every last girl raced from start to finish, from the first race of the night to the last race.”
