The relay placed second. – Review photos by Greg Ceilley PLYMOUTH – It was truly a team effort which propelled the Plymouth Panthers to the championship in Saturday’s Plymouth Invitational girls swimming and diving meet.

The Panthers won just one event but had at least three place-winners in all nine of the individual events as they cruised to the title. PHS racked up 552 points, followed by Pulaski with 423½. PHS earned second in six events.

Plymouth’s two entries in each of the three relays placed in the top eight. The top-16 finishers in all events scored team points. PHS was led by junior Kayla Lentz who won the 100-yard butterfly in 1 minute, 6.45 seconds.

The Panthers got off to a strong start as they scored a meet-high 53 points in the diving competition which was held in the morning. Sophomore Savannah Arneson placed second to lead PHS as she scored a career-high 318.25 points for 11 dives.

“It was our depth that helped us win the invite. The girls competed very well,” said Panther head coach Mike Slagle.

“Our goal for this meet was to compete with the swimmers in the heats they competed in. Even though our times were a little off our Thursday times [in a triangular meet], the girls swam with those in the heats they were in.

“I was pleased with their swims/ dives. We still have seven weeks left in the season and picking up a win like this – swimming tired – we competed well,” said Slagle.

“Savannah had her best per- formance of her career,” said PHS diving coach Greg Heberlein. “She is our leader on this year’s [diving] team. She is a lot of fun to watch.

“This was only Gwen Nytes’s second 11-dive meet and she too had her career best score.”

Olivia Honeck and Allison Horner also dove for PHS, competing in their second 11-dive meet.

“The four of them gave us a very good start to the meet – putting us in front after the first event,” said Heberlein.

Lauren Boos, an Elkhart Lake- Glenbeulah sophomore, finished sixth in the 50 freestyle for Kiel/ EL-G which was her best placing of the meet in an individual race. Boos was clocked in 27.22 seconds.

The meet had three double-winners in Katie Kaminski of Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol, Karla Sharbuno of Port Washington and Corrin Vanlanen,

Pulaski. Kaminski won the 200 individual medley and 100 breaststroke. Sharbuno triumphed in the 200 and 500 freestyle races. Vanlanen took first in the 50 and 100 freestyle events.
