WARSAW – The Warsaw boys swim team had a relatively easy night against NorthWood, winning the Northern Lakes Conference dual, 143-41, while the Lady Tigers got a better fight from NorthWood in a 107-61 Warsaw win Thursday evening.
The boys won 11 of the 12 events and almost claimed all 12 in what shaped up to be a competitive diving round. Panther diver Teagan Stutsman broke through with a 207.55 win over Warsaw’s Liam McCarrick, who posted a 205.60. Tiger Tyler Paseka was third at 184.10.
Otherwise, Warsaw (3-0, 2-0 NLC) rolled in most every other event. Spencer Davidson, Zach Taylor and Jayden Parrett all won two individual events each while Matt Wildman and Husdon Snyder each took a win plus the three relay wins from the Tigers.
Davidson won his usual 50 free (22.69) and grabbed a win in the 100 free (49.54). Parrett maintained his dominance in the backstroke (54.10) and swam a 1:46.50 to win the 200 free. Taylor asserted himself in the individual medley (2:06.64) and butterfly (56.32).
Wildman earned honors in the breaststroke (1:06.38) and Snyder the 500 free (5:19.16).
The Tiger medley relay rolled at 1:45.99, the 200 free relay at 1:41.98 and the 400 free relay at 3:28.61. Warsaw would go on to sweep seven of the 11 boys races against NorthWood.
The Warsaw girls got a decent fight from NorthWood, as the Lady Panthers took four events.
Warsaw’s duo of Savannah Tayler and Brenna Morgan both claimed two wins while Laurel Moeller also claimed victory. Tayler swam a 2:32.61 winner in the IM and 6:09.87 in the 500 free while Morgan stepped back into her state swim events, the 50 (25.90) and 100 free (56.50) for glory against NorthWood. Moeller timed a 1:20.23 in the breaststroke for honors.
Warsaw’s relays came up with big points, taking the medley at 2:05.77, the 200 at 1:53.14 and 400 at 4:25.13.
