The Plymouth Panthers had a fine performance in last weekend’s Oshkosh West Invitational boys swimming and diving meet as they placed fifth in a 14-team field.

The meet was split into two groups for Saturday’s swimming, with half of the teams competing at the PHS pool and the other half at Oshkosh West. The diving event was held Friday night at West.

Appleton North/East won the meet with 344 points and West was the runner-up at 342. The Panthers tallied 237, 46 ahead of sixth-place Sheboygan North (191).

PHS was led by the 200-yard freestyle relay which captured first in a season-best 1 minute, 35.01 seconds. The relay included seniors Lucas Collard and Zach Gambrell and juniors Chaz Halderson and Ryan Holec.

Plymouth’s next highest place-winners were senior Anghelo Gangano with a fourth in diving with a score of 284.95 points for 11 dives and sophomore Harrison Strutz who earned fourth in the 100 backstroke in a career-best 1:00.66.

Friday night’s diving started us off with some great points by divers Anghelo Gangano and Riley Josephs,” said PHS head coach Clare Sedlacek.

“The highlights of the day was the ‘A’ medley relay going as fast as we did last year at [Eastern Wisconsin] conference and the ‘B’ relay equaling the “A’ relay time for the Oshkosh West Invite last year.”

The “A” relay placed sixth and the “B” relay finished 15th.

“To win the 200 freestyle relay against competition like Oshkosh West, Neenah, Appleton North/East, Manitowoc Lincoln and Sheboygan North is really saying something,” said Sedlacek.

“We finished fifth in the 400 freestyle relay which is also very impressive.”

PHS diving coach Greg Heberlein was very pleased with Gangano and Josephs.

“Anghelo is a second-year diver as a junior. He is already doing harder dives than he did last year and has had best performances in all three of his meets this year. He is diving very well,” said Heberlein.

“Riley is a second-year sophomore diver. He too is diving very well.”
