Panthers a strong fourth in Bulldog Invite

CEDARBURG – The Plymouth Panthers put together a good team performance Saturday as they earned fourth in the traditionally strong Cedarburg Bulldog Invitational boys swim/dive meet.

PHS scored 217 points in the 13-team event. Perennial power Shorewood captured the title with 366. Kiel was fifth at 205.

“It was a great meet for us. I was the happiest with our total team effort and really proud of the way all the guys dug in and worked hard,” said Panther head coach Clare Sedlacek.

“It felt great to have them swim so well and take a very hard-earned fourth place at a good invite.”

The Panthers were led by the following runner-up finishers:

Josh Suchon, diving; 200-yard medley relay – Brian Linzmeyer, Andrew Connor, Cormick Hnilicka and Mitch Tournour; Linzmeyer, 100 butterfly and 100 backstroke; and Connor in the 100 breaststroke.

Suchon’s score is a season-best for 11 dives. He finished behind Racine Case’s Ricky Bradley who is ranked No. 2 in Division 1.

“Since medals were awarded to the top eight places out of the 19 divers that competed, it was great to have two divers in the top eight, which got the swim team a jump- start on the meet by giving them 28 team points,” said PHS diving coach Dave Kuckuk.

Aaron Cantleberry of PHS was eighth in diving. The top-eight finishers in swimming also earned medals in the meet.

Linzmeyer swam a season-best in the butterfly. Connor posted his fastest time of the season in the breaststroke.
