Panthers capture Redwing Invitational crown

SHEBOYGAN – The Plymouth Panthers won five events as they earned first place in Saturday’s Sheboygan South Redwing Invitational boys swimming and diving meet.

Plymouth finished second last year and took first the year before. PHS racked up 425 points, followed by Wauwatosa West/East which tallied 399. South finished third with 352.

The Panthers’ first-place finishers included: Riley Josephs in diving with a score of 337.30 points for 11 dives; the 200-yard medley relay in 1 minute, 45.05 seconds; Ryan Holec, 100 butterfly, 54.88 seconds; Ben Schaefers, 500 freestyle, 5:23.31; and the 200 freestyle relay in 1:32.54.

The medley relay included Harrison Strutz, Chaz Halderson, Holec and Cole Henning. The 200 freestyle relay consisted of Strutz, Halderson, Henning and Holec.

“We had a great meet on Saturday. Riley had a super day – the best performance of his career – a great way for us to start out the day,” said Panther head coach Clare Sedlacek.

“We were set up very well to win the meet. As always, our relays continue to be our strength and that was no different today. We focus on our relays, just like we have in past years, and it continues to pay off for us with great team results.

“We are also very lucky with the ability to move our swimmers around into different events to try and score as many points as possible. Ryan Holec led the way with one individual win, one second- place in the 50 free and the fastest split in the medley butterfly and anchor leg of the 200 free relay,” said Sedlacek.

“Ben Schaefers looked amazing in the 500 free. Harrison Strutz also had a great day – swimming the fastest split in the medley backstroke, placing fifth in the 100 butterfly, and going a very fast 59.00 to take second in the 100 back.

“One of the things that makes our team so successful is the way that every single one of the guys at this meet contributed to the win by scoring points. Senior Cole Henning stepped up in all three relays. Other seniors, Mitch Eigenberger and Jordan Marshall, were very important in their individual and relay events,” said the coach.
