Panthers cruise to EWC triangular win

KIEL – A strong team effort sparked the Plymouth Panthers to a first-place finish in Thursday’s boys swimming and diving triangular meet.

The Panthers upped their Eastern Wisconsin Conference dual record to 5-1 (8-2 overall). A triangular meet counts as two duals. PHS racked up 154 points, followed by host Kiel with 101 and Berlin/Green Lake, 47.

PHS had two top-three finishers in nine of the 12 events. Junior Ben Schaefers swam on all three winning relays – 200-yard medley, 200 freestyle and 400 freestyle – and also won the 100 butterfly. Senior Harrison Strutz was also on all three relays and added a runner-up finish in the 100 freestyle.

“It was a fun meet as we got a chance to move some of the guys around to events they don’t normally swim, with some amazing results,” said PHS head coach Clare Sedlacek.

“Our relays again looked great as we took first and third in the medley, 200 free and 400 free Relays.

“Ben Nichols and Charlie Waitkus went 2-3 [respectively] in the 500 free – the first time for both of these guys to swim this event ever. A great effort by both of these guys,” said Sedlacek.

PHS won the junior varsity meet, 124-96, over Kiel. B/GL didn’t field a JV team. Freshman Noah Scudella was a double-winner to lead the Panthers. Scudella took first in the 100 freestyle and 100 breaststroke.
