Last night was a cold one outside, but the Cougar Boys were on fire with 6 swimmers getting PRs while defeating the North Montgomery Chargers.
Tyler Thompson (SR) continues to drop time. His 200 Free dropped by .43 seconds, placing him 2nd while his 1.37 second drop scored him 2nd in the 500 Free. Tyler also swam legs in the winning 200 Medley Relay A team and 400 Freestyle Relay team. Woot woot!
Nathan Ballard (SR) showed once again that distance is his specialty, winning the 500 and 200 Freestyle races. We should expect great things at sectionals with these times being posted at this point during the season. Nathan also swam legs in the winning 200 Medley Relay A team and 400 Freestyle Relay team.
Matthew Ballard (SR) had solid swims in the 200 and 500 Freestyle races with 3rd place finishes in both, helping the Cougars score 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in both races. Matthew also helped out on the 200 Medley Relay B team and 2nd place 200 Free Relay.
Mason Allen (JR) continues to impress with consistent time drops, securing his place as a sprinter for the Cougars. He PR’d in the 100 Freestyle with a .27 second time drop and battled in the 50 Free, just out touching fellow Cougar Jacob Farrington (FR) at the wall for the win.
Dustin Novak (JR) PR’d in his 100 Breaststroke race with a 2.24 second time drop. His 200 IM time finished 4th. Dustin also helped out on the 200 Medley Relay B team and 2nd place 200 Free Relay.
Kyle Young (SO) easily won both the 200 IM and 100 Breast. Kyle also swam legs in the winning 200 Medley Relay A team and 400 Freestyle Relay team. We can always count on Kyle for his strong work ethic and consistent performances.
Matthew Trotter (SO) finished 3rd in the 200 IM and beat the lone Charger in the 100 Fly for the Cougar win. Matthew also swam legs in the winning 200 Medley Relay A team and 400 Freestyle Relay team.
Dagan Everman (FR), one of the hardest workers on the team, showed that hard work does pay off! With a 1.10 and .54 second drop he PR’d in both the 50 and 100 Free respectively. Way to go, Dagan!
Jacob Farrington (FR) is getting into a grove and showing his potential as force to be reckoned with in the sprint races. Although he was out touched at the wall by Mason Allen (JR) in the 50 Free, he won the 100 Free with a huge 4.45 second time drop, and a PR. With times like that Jacob will be battling for a spot on the 400 Relay team.
Great job, Cougars! We’re back in the water Monday night against Cascade for our last home meet of the season, and senior night. Come out to support our Cougars!!!
